After the second dose of chemo, I was afraid for what it might bring. We had a few bumps in the road that night, but Charlotte woke with a smile on her face and a “good morning mom” along with a sweet kiss. I was ecstatic! She ate some crackers and grapes that stayed down, she wanted to get out of bed and walk around! Then decided play doh with dad would be better. They built multiple snow men together and watched Curious George. She blew bubbles and wanted me to build a castle with the new Legos she was given. Well, if you know Charlotte, you know she has a specific way she wants things done. When they aren’t accomplished, it’s not the prettiest sight! Yep, I’m no Lego master and Charlotte let me know! And while we expressed to her that her behavior wasn’t ok, a huge part of me was praising God that the fire in her was still blazing! Her fight is stronger than ever. Our day ended with shooting baskets in the trash with auntie Lolo and a sleepover in the hospital room.
I’m so grateful to our family that has continuously been here to help with food, Eleanor, little things we may need, and just being here for support. My family is truly blessed. The prayers from everyone else is AMAZING! From family, to friends, to people we don’t even know, literally all around the world people are praying for our baby girl. We couldn’t ask for more!
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. ~James 5:15
