Rebecca is going to have to do as Dr. Tracy used to say "A do over"

There is just too much going on right now.  She retained almost 26 lbs of fluid over 24 hours.  Kidneys are tired, blood pressure is up and down and not in a good way,  spleen is not doing what ever it does, liver is not functioning and on and on and on.

I spoke with Elizabeth last night and she was exhausted and emotional and scared. I so wished I could have taken her a couple of tea cups and some tea. 

These kids are strong and determined. 

It makes me so so sad.  It is so weird how connections are made.  Even though we don't spend a lot of time in traditional neighborhoods, we still look out for each other's kids.  Our neighborhoods are a bit different then before.  Little bits of data, 1s and 0s across wire and cable and real things happen between people. Someone asked why I reached out to other moms in other states and countries.  How can we not do that?  Cancer parents have a special insight into what is really happening and it needs to be recognized and we need to fix it.  Just fix it.....   

Prayers go out for this family as cancer wins again.
