Today we will celebrate McKenzies 9th birthday. Our baby is not such a baby anymore. She is growing to be a beautiful young lady with a huge heart full of compassion. We Love You Kenzie :)
Jesse started off yesterday with a spinal tap and a shot of Chemo in her spine. They gave her a medication to relax her, but this time she was able to watch the procedure on a tv screen. How is that for weird..... She ate small amounts throughout the day, and as of yesterday, she has gained 8 pounds since last Monday. I believe she is almost at her original check in weight. The Marinal seems to be the key to eating and keeping it down. Jesse is sticking to her story "I never inhaled". I got to meet Jesse's roommate, Talia. She is two years old, and has a brain tumor. She has already had the surgery to remove it, and now receives chemo for the remainder of her treatments. Wednesday she will have her MRI to see if the tumor is still gone. What a little trooper to go through all this pain at such a young age. Our nights are rough, as she cries for a few hours in the wee hours of the night. I don't think I have heard so many beeps through the night. If baxter runs out of battery, it is not just a beep, but a siren that blares through the room. I think I need a cup of coffee just to keep my eyes open this morning. Does Starbucks deliver? The next two nights will be Kota's turn. Thank you Jo for watching over your sister, making her laugh and being her best friend.
Love and Prayers,
