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.

Six to go!! Abby continues to do extremely well, and always impresses me with how well she is developing. She continues to do well with her walking and everything else.

After her treatment today, her anesthesiologist told us that during her treatment, they had to give her a breathing tube. I am thinking that she has some allergies, because every time she starts breathing deeply I notice that my allergies are acting up as well. So hopefully it gets better. If it doesn't, the anesthesiologist said that they want to make a new mask which would entail running another test scenario with the new mask. All of this would put her treatments back a week, and we do not want that! Dr. Mansur is strongly against having to do this with only 6 days of treatment left, and I agree!

Tonight, Abby wanted to go back to Bandana's to eat and see her buddy Bobby, who is her new friend. As we were walking up to the restaurant, Abby tripped over the concrete and landed on her knees. She wasn't hurt thankfully, but I think it hurt her pride a little. We all then went inside and had a great dinner and Bobby took good care of us again! We then got a picture of Abby, Emily, and Bobby together and we will put it on the blog as well. Abby continues to say that she wants to have her birthday dinner at Bandana's still, and I am sure we could make that happen for her.

Tomorrow, we should find out more about what the plan is for her new mask. They are going to have us come in a little later and get the new mask made just in case. So that means that we will get back on the road home later. Oh well, if it helps my girl get better, we will do it!
