About Mike Ellis

Mike has been a Disney fan since his first trip to the Magic Kingdom in 1979 when he was 11 years old. Since that first trip, he has seen parks open, lands close, and attractions come and go, but one thing remains the same, his love for Disney is as strong as ever.

His Disney adventures caused him to start My Dreams of Disney because he wanted to document for his family and friends all of the special Disney Memories he has enjoyed with his family, and since that first post in 2010, Mike's hobby has become his passion!

Now a Travel Consultant with Pixie Vacations for over nine years, Mike has helped many of his readers plan and have incredible Disney vacations of their own. Check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

    Big Praises from my friend Amanda regarding her husband Daniel. Here is what she wrote:

    I guess it’s a good thing these updates are becoming more or less monthly! We hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season and are braving the winter! We have lots of good news this update.
    First, Daniel had a PET scan on Christmas Eve and it came back “unremarkable” meaning no cancer was detected. That was obstacle #1. Because of the chemo he is one, the PET scans don’t always get a good read on the intestines so he is going in for an EGD and Colonoscopy on February 4th to check everything out. At that time he will also have a polyp removed from his duodenum that they couldn’t get before we started all this treatment. With those results they can give us the all clean or the more treatment needed decision. Obstacle #2.
    Second, because his PET came back unremarkable, he was able to have his last round of chemo on January 12th. YAYYYYY!!! His hair is growing back already and his energy levels are rising. He is still having a lot of side effects from the chemo but it takes 5-8 weeks to start to leave your body so we expect those to last a little longer. Obstacle #3.
    Third, his osteonecrosis in his mouth seems to have healed. The oral surgeon is watching it but the bone is no longer exposed. We are just making sure it doesn’t get reaggravated before it heals completely. Obstacle #4.
    Next steps: After the EGD/Colonoscopy, we meet with the surgeon to schedule and plan the hernia repair. That appointment is scheduled for mid-February so we should know if we have the all clear to proceed by then. We are hoping the surgery can be scheduled the end of February/beginning of March but that will depend on the surgeon. It would be wonderful for Daniel to start spring on the mend to a “normal” (whatever that is!) life! The oncologist will follow up monthly with a PET scan every 3 months for the first year or so to be proactive in catching any recurrence since it came back so quickly last time. So, with any luck, he may be able to be back to work and active living in the next few months!
    Praise be to God and all our prayer warriors! We thank you all for traveling on this journey with us and offering prayers on our behalf. It definitely appears they are working!!! If we can ask for a few more, please pray that the EGD/Colonoscopy is clean and the polyp removal and hernia repair go smoothly with speedy and easy recovery. Also pray that his osteonecrosis fully heals and that God provides him the right job as he begins the job hunt again. And last but not least, please pray for the clinicians and staff that worked to get us here. I have never met so many wonderful strangers willing to fight for someone’s life (except maybe any time I’m around our armed forces or police officers).
    We pray for you all every day! You have made this journey so much easier and caused more than a few miracles to this point! It’s not over yet but we are through the biggest obstacles! If you ever need specific prayers (or extra) please don’t hesitate to ask! We would love to return the favor!

    Please continue to pray for them, and give God the glory for all that he has done for them so far. Thank you everyone!

    Prayers go out to the family of my friend Thomas, who lost his father last night. Here is what he wrote:

    Thanks you all for your thoughts and prayers. My dad had a massive hemorrhagic stroke last night and passed away around 1am this morning. Ironically this had nothing to do with his triple bypass heart surgery scheduled for tomorrow. Blessings to you all. I will post arrangements later today.

    Please pray for God’s Peace, Comfort, Strength, and Love to envelope Thomas and his family in their time of sorrow.

    My friend Kelly has a prayer request. Here is what she wrote:

    Our little family is going through a tough trial right now. We know we need to have more faith in who our God is than who the enemy is not. We are asking for prayer. Asking that God provides. That He covers us with safety and protection. But most of all that we, especially the girls, can find comfort and peace.

    Please pray for them, and remember, God’s Peace and Comfort is a wonderful thing.
