    I have not updated because I put links in, but Ariana could really use some prayers. She is currently admitted to a hospital for fever... Not good when you are doing rounds/finished round of chemo. I left link so you can read update. I know her mom would love to know more prayers are coming their way!!! Thank you!!!

    Going to bump this. Ariana is worse tonight. They are trying to transfer her to St. Jude. Please pray she can be transferred quickly and that she can be strong enough to transfer.

    If they can get her to St. Jude, there is hope. My friend's daughter was gifted several quality years of life from their work.

    Bumping this... This little girl still needs prayers. From her go fund me page..."We are HOME for a little over a week! We still don't know what the next step is or if there will be one. Tumor board's meeting was very inconclusive, and it really depends on scans.

    We go back to St. Jude Aug 1 or 2 for appts and then MRI and LP on that Friday! THAT will determine our next step. Ariana is worn out, and rightly so. Radiation was harder on her than we anticipated, but more so, the tumors are causing her to have some issues (a lot of emotional/ behavioral stuff on top of all the pain). It is very very difficult to watch. Ariana can't control when it happens; it happens often, and she remembers after and feels bad about it. It breaks my heart.... very painful on all counts!" All the stuff they are doing now is fully out of pocket. Ariana's mom is also about 34 weeks pregnant. So I ask that you pray for Ariana, but her mom & family. Thanks.

    Please pray for this family.... Her mom's words are truly heart wrenching. As we enjoy momenta with our families....please keep this and other families going through this or the pain of being "separated" brings this season. (I read somewhere that id you are a believer that you don't lose someone, you know where they are you are just separated... I love that.)
    From Ari's mom... FYI... You may need a tissue....

    This is real. This is raw.

    **Please refrain from blowing up our phones. We have asked nicely. We truly need our space!**

    We are sad; we are sick; we are angry; we are scared; we are devastated... The list could go on and on. We are truly in a spot no parent should ever have to be in. Ariana’s cancer has progressed very rapidly. In just 6 short weeks she has 7 new tumors: 2 new spots in the brain, 5 large tumors in the spine. The tumor we were treating has been measured as 4 times larger than 6 weeks ago. The immunotherapy hasn’t done a thing. She’s had some issues and some pain, but we never anticipated this. No one does. Our time with her is very limited. They told us she has 4-6 weeks, maybe less, maybe more. With ATRT it’s very hard to tell. They are surprised she’s doing so “well” physically, when clinically she’s doing so poorly.... We will wrap up some things here, and then shortly after Christmas we will return home to LIVE! We are trying to make some plans... But we will let Ariana guide us.

    We haven’t told her how bad it is yet, but she knows some.... She asks a lot lot of questions. We don’t lie to her. She’s had friends before her go to heaven, and she knows there is no cancer and no pain there. I find solace in that. At just 5 she’s stronger than I’ll ever be!

    A fellow ATRT angel parent gave me the most sound advice I could’ve ever asked for. He said, “Don’t mourn her while she’s here, no matter how hard it is. You will have plenty time to do that when she’s gone.” I pray that you all can do that with us. Be strong in front of her. It’s going to be so damn hard, but she feels our pain, and she has enough of her own to bear.

    All day after results, we were just going through the motions. They took Ariana & Jameson to play while we received results and looked over scans. After, Ari wanted to go to the cafeteria to eat. I didn’t even taste the food, but I forced myself to swallow. Then she wanted to go to the children’s museum. We took them. We played all over that place for several hours. I hurt; I watched her happy; I cried. Lee cried. We didn’t let her see us. I’m sure she will see us cry, though. It’s so damn hard to know I’m losing my very best friend. A lot of people will say that about their kids, but Ari truly is my best friend, and I’m just not ready... I know no one ever is. I watched her rock her baby, and I hurt that she will never be a mother. Cancer has stolen so much from our family... I hate it with every ounce of my being.

    If you don’t know what to say, please just don’t say anything. We don’t want to hear that “God has a plan” right now. We are well aware that God has had his hand in all of this.... We are well aware that we have been blessed with 5 amazing years with the most amazing kid on Earth, but we don’t want to give her up. We know we are blessed with 2 other beautiful babies, but there will always be a void. Just pray for strength for all involved. She’s so important to so many. Most of all please pray that she doesn’t suffer. She’s suffered so much already in her short life.

    Thank you all for continuing to pray with us and for loving us. I’m sorry we don’t have good news for you. I want my Christmas miracle more than anyone. We are very happy to have Christmas just the 5 of us. Extra special. Then when we get home, we can have a big family Christmas. God bless you all, and love on your children. Tomorrow is never promised!
