Her brain surgery was Monday. It lasted 6 hours and she did really well.
Watching her come out of recovery killed me. It was the hardest thing in the world. You just want to crumble and break into a million pieces, but you stay strong for her. I can't imagine what Annie and her husband were going through. It kills me watching my niece go through this, I can't imagine if it was my child.
Tuesday morning they did an MRI and confirmed that they had completely removed the tumor, and there was no foreign matter left in her brain. Everything that the tumor had been pushing against, had already moved back into its right place. God is so good.
She will have to have chemo and radiation for a year, but they expect the cancer to never return.
This girl is a fighter, for sure. I can't even fathom all she's gone through and still going through.
I can't wait until she's back to her cheerful, bubby self.
Today is my last day as a nanny, and with my sweet girls. I've had the oldest since she was 8 weeks old, she's now almost 5. And my baby girl, I have grown to love her with all my heart. She makes me so happy. Today will be a hard day, saying goodbye. Too much sadness for one week!
I am so excited about going, but it's going to tear me apart leaving my twinnie and my niece right now.
There truly is a bond between twins, that you can't explain. We can feel what the other one feels. It's crazy. It's amazing. My heart hurts for what she's going through.
But I'm going to get through these next few days, and then the next month, and the next year.
My precious friend April said this last marathon I ran served a really important purpose. She said it showed me just how tough I really am.
I couldn't do it on my own, God gives me strength!
Have a good weekend, my friends.
P.S. I promise my race recap will be up on Monday!
