One of the biggest blessings in our lives are the wonderful people who are following Abby's journey. I received wonderful advice about how to help Abby with her monster headaches, and our weekend was filled with fun crafts that you have sent. Crafts are a favorite Riggs' family activity and help Abby develop skills that will help her in school. Thank you so much for blessing our family.
Thank you also for praying for us this weekend. I tried to make the girls weekend fun, and at times it truly was, but there were also moments when the best I could do was to hold and rock Abby while she cried. Abby is normally a joy to be with, but pain makes it hard for Abby to handle normal sibling interaction. Abby's big sister and brothers were very sweet with her, but it is hard on them to see Abby feeling poorly.
Besides the headaches, that are caused by chemo, Abby also caught a bug, that is making things even tougher for her. I learned this weekend that the decongestants I would normally give her, will make Abby's Intracranial pressure much worse (thanks Sam!). Hopefully we will be able to get to see Abby's doctor today. (update: They just called with a afternoon appointment. Yeah!) I will update and post weekend pictures when we get home.

Marsha is a wonderful artist who helps kids create wonderful art projects.
Marsha recently went on a medical mission trip to Guatemala. She even
brought Abby a beautiful handmade Guatemalan hat. Thank
you Marsha for bringing joy to so many hurting children.
