We received the results from Maggie’s end of chemo CT scan this past thursday!! She has a small node that they will be watching in her left lung and a cyst on her ovary, but they declared her No Evidence of Disease (or NED)!!!!! As long as she stays NED for the next 5 years she will be considered in remission! We are ever so thankful for all of your prayers! Mags will have blood work and a physical once a month and CT scans every three months. Praise the Lord for He is true, good, and holy.
Happy Chemo Tuesday Team Princess Maggie!! I slept in until 11:00! So I ordered lunch for my breakfast 🙂 Chemo went well yesterday. My doctors have decided to cut one of my chemo therapies in half since my body has had such a hard time recovering from it. As long as everything goes well I’ll have chemo today and tomorrow evening and then I’ll get to go home! Thank you all for your prayers!!
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
Two chemo days down, 3 to go! Hopefully I will get my CT scan results in the next couple of days!! I have had lots of fun playing with my nurses, speech therapist and a new friend who also has cancer. So far I have had a couple of princess chemo’s and one my little pony! So I may turn into a princess pony, we’ll just have to wait and see 😉 My tummy has only been a little upset and my legs are tired, so I’m having a pretty good week so far! My room number is h12b48 if you want to send me a free card through the hospital! Thank you for your prayers and support!!
My family and I had a great time at the shekinah festival today!! It was so nice to get to play out in the sunshine and be around other kids my age! I enjoyed doing sand art, getting my face painted, riding the barrel train, and playing on the bounce house. Also, my doctors said that my counts on friday looked good enough that I should hopefully be able to start chemo this monday!! We will get to stay at ronald mcdonald’s house on sunday night because I have to be at the hospital at 6 in the morning to start drinking the contrast for my CT scans at 8. I am being sedated for these scans so that they can get a good picture. They will be doing three scans: one of my chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Please pray that the doctors see what they need to see and that no new tumors have grown 🙂
My fever has been gone for 24 hours!! So I can go home as soon as my immune system starts building back up (My ANC is still at zero)! The platelet transfusion I got yesterday morning has made me feel much better, and since my fever has been gone for a day I am out of isolation and am allowed to walk around the floor. I love the room we’re in because I can see the helicopters land and take off! My room number is h12.a14 if you would like to send me a free card! Thank you to everyone who has prayed and/or donated blood to my reserve!!!
This is a picture from the OSU game today! One of our neighbor’s gave my mommy and daddy tickets to go!! They said that the band must have been thinking of me because they made princess aurora’s castle at half-time 🙂 Last night I ran a low grade fever for a while, but I am feeling better today!! I would like to thank God for such supportive friends, neighbors, and family. Also I am thankful for all of the people who have donated blood for me this weekend! Love, Maggie 👑😊
I got my bloodwork done this morning and my hemoglobin came back at 5.5 and my ANC at zero 😦 So right now I am at children’s snuggling with my blanket and getting 300 mls of blood! Hopefully I won’t spike a fever while I’m getting it so that I can go home afterwards. I am thankful that God made o negative blood, since they didn’t have any of my type of blood when I came today. Thank you to all who have donated blood and have prayed for me!!
We found out yesterday that my ANC (a measurement of my immune system) is super low even though I have been getting neupogen shots. So today I have been playing inside and taking if easy. Sometimes I get frustrated when I can’t play with my friends and go places they go, but I know it’s for the best. Please ask God that the shots I’m getting will work well and that my hemoglobin comes back up! Also pray for my great mamaw Lyon and my friend Addie as they recover in the hospital from their surgeries. I would like to thank God that our friend came and fixed our air conditioning this week because it was SO hot! Also that my online christian school gave me 3 scholarships so that my mommy and daddy won’t have to pay very much for my tuition! I love you all!! -Maggie
I woke up today with an upset tummy from the chemo, but thank goodness for medicine that makes it feel better!! I spent the rest of the day with my memaw! We made a trip to build a bear and I got to make a princess aurora bear!! (My favorite princess) I’d like to praise God for feeling better in the afternoon and getting to have fun. Please pray for our friend Addie she had to have surgery and is in the picu because she had bleeding in her brain. Also please pray that my legs don’t get to sore and bruised from the shots I have to get every day for the next couple of weeks.
Now therefore, our God, we thank you, and praise your glorious name..” – 1 chronicles 29:13
