We find ourselves talking about the past and longing for things to just be normal again. We always have enjoyed going to fall festivals this time of year and bundling up on cold days to go out and play in the leaves. Abbey had just started a tap class on Friday mornings a few weeks before she was diagnosed and it's hard on Fridays to be sitting in a clinic where she's hooked up to an I.V. instead of watching her jump around with her tap shoes on and be a three year old. We miss watching her and Jacob ride around in his jeep with big smiles on their faces. We miss normal and it hurts.
This is hard to write as I'm sure it's hard to read, but we need to be honest as we go through this journey and we're asking you to continue to pray for us and especially Abbey. Our hearts are so heavy right now.
Tomorrow is her treatment day so we will be at the Ireland Cancer Center at 10a.m. She will have her port accessed for them to draw blood to see if she needs platelets or blood and then she will get a dose of chemo. The thought of more medication in her little body is hard to imagine right now. Please pray for a peace for her and us as we go through our day tomorrow and strength for the remainder of this month.
