I have to say... all of those positive thoughts, vibes, prayers and candles have helped! I am not going to lie and say that Kayla has been dancing all day because for sure, she has not. But, our plan to have her try and sleep though the nausea really worked today to keep it to a minimum. I kept Skype on all day and checked in on her and with Denny very frequently. Most of the time, she was sleeping. It was a little frustrating to see some of the nurses or Doctors come in and loudly communicate with Denny while standing over her bed. I knew exactly what she was trying to do and was afraid they were going to put an end to the sleep our beautiful warrior needed to get though this really hard day! Luckily, she managed to get through it. 6 hours of Cisplatin hell dripped through her tiny body. Willingly, my angel laid there allowing the toxic chemicals to invade her body once again.... for her fourth and FINAL time. We just hope and pray that the Amifostine that entered first does it's job to protect her hearing from any more damage. Kayla is a true warrior and I am so incredibly proud of her. She has done us all so proud by finding the strength to take a bat to this monsters head.
Tonight, I just wish her a peaceful nights rest as she prepares her body and mind to continue winning this fight. I am so so proud.
Thank you so much to all of you who have reached out to send us messages of strength and love since my post yesterday. We appreciate and love you all so much for being there for us and keeping us strong. It is so much easier going through this knowing we are surrounded by so many loving thoughts. No one should fight alone!
Speaking of that, Kayla and I created some new wrist bands in youth and adult sizes. They will debut at the 5K one week from today. After that, we will see how many we have left. Kayla picked out the color blue and the writing is in silver metallic (representing grey for brain cancer). It reads on one side "Kayla Rose" and "No One Fights Alone" on the back. We thank you all for joining in the fight!!! I have been doing my own training here to get fit using Kayla and everyone I know battling this horrible monster as motivation. I feel like if Kayla and these kids can do it, so can I. After months of sitting around and waiting, I knew I needed to get moving. Today, I was a sweaty mess bawling my head off as I ran like I never have before. Just before being admitted we started this training routine. I'm doing Couch to 5K. Denny does his own beautiful thing. Kayla actually loved seeing me sweaty and I told her that I'm doing it for her. Her smile was never wider and I realized she was proud of me. So Kayla. While you slept today, I ran for you. I poured sweat for YOU and prayed so so hard that you would feel it. That you would feel all of the love out there in the world for you and fight this like you never have... and you did! I love you my tiny warrior. You really are my hero.
