Two Weeks Down....

As Delaney closed out week 2, she tore apart her 10th paper chain, she has 18 more to go. Delaney has been getting the hang of things, with early mornings starting at 530am, doctor and nurse assessments before her treatment, and one of her tougher challenges waking up from sedation and shaking off the haze from it. Delaney is doing very well, her spirit, energy, and even appetite are on a steady climb up. Delaney is starting to walk unassisted for short distances through out the house, or hold us with one hand. She still needs someone by her side at all times. It is amazing to see her get more independence back. Secondly she is slowly gaining confidence to try new foods each day, and finally drank 2 Apple juice boxes on her own yesterday. Another positive is that Delaney has not gotten nauseous yet from the radiation. As there are still many daily challenges and struggles Delaney has and the family must contend with, Delaney's smile is infectious and attitude is fierce. We have included pictures of the machine that delivers radiation, the doors that it is behind are 1 foot thick, it is an intimidating machine for Delaney, but she now laughs, smiles and dances in our arms as she fiercely goes in for treatment. Thank your for all the prayers, love and support. As always.... GO TEAM DELANEY!!!

"And though she be but LITTLE, she is FIERCE!"
