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.

Today we had a great day, except for the morning...we had a visit from a bear again this morning. I thought that the bear was going to attack a nurse, but I corralled the bear and put the claws back in, and got her out of the hospital without anyone getting hurt! Once the bear was put back into her cage, and Abby took its spot, we had fun.

When we got home, Maegan got a call from the Make-A-Wish Foundation who said that they had received Abby's application and she was accepted for a wish! She says that she wants to kiss a real prince, meet all of the princesses, have a real princess gown, real tiara, princess high heels, and to ride the float with the princesses during a parade. When we told her that they accepted her, she got so excited and started planning all sorts of things that she wants to do. We'll see what she comes up with.

Tonight, we went to Fortel's Pizza Den where we ate some awesome pizza and I then got 4th overall ranking on the shooting game there. What can I say... Tomorrow, we are going to go to the Botanical Gardens where they have a DinoQuest display there that Abby is excited to see. She told Maegan that she wanted to see the dinosaur bones at the museum, so we were excited when we found out that the Botanical Gardens was doing the display this week.

Pretty girls!  Out for dinner at Fortel's Pizza Den.

We have noticed that Abby is starting to loose a lot of hair lately. When Maegan brushes her hair, there is always a good amount of hair left over on the brush. I've been noticing a lot of hair in the tub after her bath. The doctor says that she'll probably loose some hair from behind her ears and around the back of her head. It should be able to be covered up by her hair and shouldn't be her whole head, which is good since she loves her hair so much.
