Abby's Journey

We'd like to invite you to read Abby's Journey from the beginning. We hope that her story may help a family who is facing the same battle with DIPG. We are praying for a cure and are praying for every child who is diagnosed with cancer.

This is Abby's story.

Hurry up and wait

Good Morning!  Abby slept really well and we were able to talk to Mary-Beth before she went off to her first day of 1st grade!!  She was very excited!  Abby was  a little upset after talking to Mary-Beth because she wants to go to school as well, and will have to wait at least until her treatments are done.  We appeased her by telling her that we could go by her school next week while we are home so she could say hello to her teacher and then say hello to her classmates.  That made her happy.

Our plan for today is to hurry up and wait to get her broviak tube put in.  They didn't have any open slots in the surgery schedule, but they said that they could work her in hopefully sometime through the day.  So, Abby is on No Food or Drink until after her surgery, and she does not like that!  She had a good dinner last night and they kept the feeding tube on until 2am when they had to turn it off.  They reconnected her IV so that she could stay hydrated.  Abby does not like being connected to the tree, and neither do we!

When we head back for Abby's surgery, they said from the time we leave the room until she returns should be around 3hours.  So hopefully we can get her in soon so that she can rest well and we can go to the Garden again!  We will keep you updated!

Hopefully Abby will receive a package in the mail from us today to help give her a smile!
