Delaney is just shy of a year (by two weeks) since she underwent a successful 12 hour brain operation to remove a tumor.

After the brain operation Delaney lost the ability to sit up, walk, talk, and eat, Delaney lost the ability to do everything. Even her vision was and is still effected. From that day forward Delaney has had to re-learn everything she already knew how to do. All the while battling the effects of chemotherapy and radiation. But she has worked fiercely to get where she is today. The road to recovery will be slow and long but Delaney puts a smile on each day working hard re-gain all that was lost. Delaney has had a busy week with feeding therapy, an appointment for an infusion to help her immune system recover, 2 weight checks, feeding tube still out, and physical therapy. Since Delaney did not have her Broviac she needed an IV placed in her hand, and Delaney did outstanding with the needle stick, with the help of Emla cream, used to numb her skin. At her weight check on Monday Delaney lost 1 1/2 pounds over 3 weeks. Then today at her weight check 4 days later she gained a 1/2 pound back. We hope that her weight is starting to stabilize. On Tuesday, September 2nd, Delaney will have another full brain and spine MRI. A day full of stress, anxiety, and unexplainable emotions. But as she has done before, just one look from Delaney and Mommy and Daddy are quickly reminded and filled with a fierce drive to do all we can to comfort her and keep her heathy and moving forward. Thank you for always thinking of our daughter, and family. Thank you for all the prayers, love and support. As always.... GO TEAM DELANEY!!!!

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