Little "L" update


I just talked with "L"'s grandma when she picked up her little brother and here is what they were told this afternoon by the Doctors. She has 2 tumors, one on her adrenal gland and one on her kidney, both stage 4 and it has spread to her bones. They are going to be doing a 9 month Chemo plan. The plan is 5 days of Chemo and then 21 days home then 5 days of Chemo then 21 days home for 9 months. After 3 months they are hoping that the tumors are reduced in size and able to be removed, then she will finish out her other 6 months of Chemo. Her prognosis is 50/50 right now.

My heart is breaking for this little 6 year old and her family. She is one of my daycare kiddos that I keep in my home, which I have been doing for over 5 years. I just can not imagine what her family is going through. Such a horrible thing for such a little princess. I have sat and thought should we have seen signs? Should we have been doing something different? I know and understand that it is nothing that her parents or I have or have not done but it just makes you feel so awful knowing that this was growing inside her and we never knew.

I would love to show you all precious she is but I am not about putting pictures of the daycare kiddos on here without their parents permission, and I don't think now would be a good time to ask. Please pray for her!!

  1. I will definitely be praying. I have been thinking about her. I wish there was a way that we could see when something was wrong with someone but we just can't. So don't question your self or blame yourself for not noticing. Put those thoughts and feelings to prayer. It won't do you or her parents any good or her any good to dwell on that. I know that is easier said than done but I will be praying for you and her parents as well as I know ya'll are going to need it too. Thanks for keeping up updated!
