Abby, with her first crush, when she was first diagnosed with cancer.
It is hard to believe she has been fighting the beast for almost 2 years.
Just for you know, "your Abby" had the very
same expression when she saw
Logan last night.
The dance recital went wonderfully. Hannah did a great job and loved being on stage. Landis and Abby now can't wait to start taking lessons. I love that they will all be enjoying doing something together.
Today, Monday, Abby has her big chemo day. She will have a spinal tap to check her intracranial pressure and then they will inject chemo into her spinal fluid. Abby has been complaining of headaches for a couple of weeks but we (her doctors and I) are hopeful they are from sinus pressure. I am a little nervous because there have been a few signs her pressure is climbing but they could also be symptoms of other, less tragic things. The cancer moms reading this know headaches can be a sign of relapse but I am going to that for now. They will be testing her spinal fluid for cancer cells tomorrow, so soon that question will be answered anyway.
Please pray that Abby will be comfortable and not scared during the procedure. For wisdom for the doctors/nurses and Brent and I as we discuss the headaches, breathing problems and her cancer treatment plan.
Abby is also loosing weight again. With her history of malnutrition, which lead to a feeding tube, I am concerned. She eats more calories than our 17 year old son but still can't gain weight.
Please also pray that Abby would be honest with the doctors. Every time she reports problems or pain to them, they schedule painful tests or procedures. She would rather stoically handle the pain than talk to them about what she is going through. Who can blame her.
