Light the Night 2010
Piper has been through so many sedation's that I have lost count, and yet somehow I never will be accustomed to watching that sweet girl fall asleep in my arms. Each time she will have exhausted herself sobbing from being hungry and each time I will hold her as the doctor injects her port with enough sedatives to allow her to sleep through the powerful chemotherapy medications pushed into her spine. And every single time she wakes up, drinks some milk and smiles and walks her way out the door. Simply Amazing.
Today was her weekly clinic visit. All of her numbers look wonderful and strong. I cannot explain the shortness of breathe I get every time they prick her little finger and I await the results. So far, God has been gracious to us and I am praying every day that He continues to protect not only her but our family, from having to encounter this monster again.
On October 1st at 5:00pm here in Athens we are joining the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at Light the Night. Light the Night is the annual fundraiser for both children and adults who have been affected by these forms of cancers. Donations and support are necessary to provide the means to continue to do research. If anyone is interested in walking with us or donating to our team please let me know(firstname.lastname@example.org). Our team name will be Perfectly Piper.
We look forward to seeing those of you who are supporting us!
