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.

Wonderful Tuesday

We had a wonderful day today. We knew that today was going to be a good day when Abby actually woke up in a good mood. She had a great morning waiting for her treatment as she went through the I Spy Christmas book finding everything there is to find in that thing. When she got called back they let Maegan go back and take pictures of Abby with her chemo mask on and the radiation room.

After treatment we had breakfast in the cafeteria, Abby's new favorite, and then went to the Manchester Mall so Maegan could find some maternity clothes. While she looked through that store, Abby and I went for a little walk through the mall and saw a Godiva chocolate store and Abby wanted to get mommy a Mother's Day present, so we went in and found my sweety some sweets! She loved them!

After that, I dragged Abby down to the GNC store so daddy could do some manly shopping. We then got Abby some new sunglasses as well as a new hat. She looks fabulous!! She wore the hat all day, and I imagine that she will have it on all day tomorrow as well.

I forgot to mention this yesterday, but Maegan and I thought that it was pretty neat. While we were walking through the hospital foyer, the 'magic piano' started playing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". It seems that rainbows have become Abby's theme! While she was still in the hospital, her primary class made her some get well soon cards where most of them had a rainbow colored on them. The primary class from my parents church also made get well soon cards that were adorned with rainbows. We thought that it seemed
appropriate and it touched us when that song started playing.

Today I also talked with my buddy Jeremy from Cabela's because the girls have been dying to go and feed the fish again, and also to feed the snapping turtles. Jeremy said that he has cleared it with Cabela's and is going to meet with Pam from the Children's Hospital about making a Children's hospital adventure day at Cabela's with different activities. I hope that it takes off, because I know that Abby and Emily had a blast and it made Abby feel so good to get out and have fun, not thinking about her tumor or how hard it is to walk and talk now. I enjoyed seeing that twinkle in her eyes again and think that the adventure day with Jeremy in charge would be amazing.

Overall, Abby has had a great day and I am praying that she continues to do well!
