Tomorrow is a big day for us! Abbey has had countless spinal taps and chemo injections in her spine since she was diagnosed. At first it was weekly, then there were parts of her treatment where it was monthly, and since Maintenance Cycle it has been every three months. Needless to say, she has had many. Well, tomorrow is her last one!! We're pretty excited to say the least :)!!
We will have a long day tomorrow as we will have to be there from about 10:30am till after 3:00pm. She won't be able to eat till it's all over, which is never fun. We will start at clinic where she will get her monthly chemo in her port. We then will head over to sedation where she will be sedated and get her LAST spinal tap and spinal chemo. There are no words to tell you how awesome it's going to feel to walk out of there with her tomorrow, knowing that she has finished that part of her treatment. We still have a few more months of chemo, but to know that we can check spinals off our list FOREVER feels pretty amazing :)!
And there truly are no words to tell you how very much I love this kid and how proud and amazed I am that she has endured so much and has shown strength beyond what I can even comprehend. Tomorrow night can't come quick enough. Being able to look her in the eyes and tell her that she has made it through this part of her treatment is going to be an amazing thing.
Would you please pray for her tomorrow? Pray for her blood to look good and for there to be no issues. Please pray for all to go smoothly and for strength for Abbey as it never gets easy going through this.
Abbey has a book of paraphrased Psalms for kids that we have been reading every night and they encourage both of our hearts as we snuggle up and read them together. One of our favorites is ...
When I trust in God, It's like being wrapped in a warm blanket.
With God on my side, I am not scared of anything -
not during the day, not during the night.
I hope this verse encourages you today as it did Abbey and I before she went to bed tonight. Thank you for your continued love, prayers and support. We are forever grateful :)!
