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.

Back in the routine

It has almost been a week since we returned from our great trip to Disney, and I believe we are finally getting back into our routines. We had noticed that during the last couple of days in Florida, that Abby would be complaining of headaches that would come and go throughout the day. We assumed it was due to our long days of waking up early and staying up late, but were just not sure. Since we have been home and started the girls back on their 7:30 bed times and Abby and Emily's naps, we have noticed that her headaches have subsided, thankfully. Maegan and I have found ourselves very paranoid anytime Abby tells us that she has a headache or if she does not feel well, so thankfully it has stopped!

On Sunday the 23rd, the Make-A-Wish volunteers are going to have a little party for Abby at our house, mainly for our family members. During the planing of it all, they discussed having a big party, but that was at the time when Abby's blood work was bad and she could not be around people too much. So, for safety's sake, we planned a small party. Maybe this summer we will have a bigger half-birthday party for Abby since she was not able to have a party with her friends over this year.

Mary-Beth is back into her schooling and will be starting piano lessons on Monday. Abby is upset that she is not taking lessons as well, but I told her that we would work with her at home and that Mary-Beth could help teach her what she learns too. Emily has lost ground in her potty-training battle. She was doing really well, but has since started peeing on the floor and not using the bathroom. Hopefully she starts back again soon!
