Piper is the 4 week old daughter of Randy and Haleigh Wilhide. She was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma-Malignant Tumor.
On another note, Piper has gotten so big in just a week (it is hard to think that we have already been in the hospital for a week!) This past week has felt like ONE very long day:never knowing what time it is or what day it is: Her cheeks are starting to fill out and her little legs are starting to get a roll in them. Her hair is getting longer and lighter by the day too. She is up to 9 lbs. 11 oz. Please continue to pray for all of the medical team involved in her day to day care, and all of the other babies and young children that are currently fighting this childhood cancer. The feelings and emotions involved with having your child be diagnosed with cancer is beyond words, just unimaginable, however with the love and support and prayers from everyone makes each day tolerable. My daily devotion was "You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace:" Isaiah 55:12 WE GOT THIS GOD, WE GOT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TEAM PIPER!
Piper is doing very well! She goes in periodically to get checkups and has been doing great! They have created "Pipers Promise" and use this for fundraisesr to help raise awareness and to give back.
The nurse just called me... she said they got it all out!!!! They are going to go in one more time to be sure of everything, but she will be out in an hour or so!!!!!! I can't wait to hera what the surgeon has to say, but I know a miracle just happened in that OR room and that big monster is out of my baby right now!!!!! Thank you for the prayers!!!!! We love you!!! We believe, always and forever!!!!!
November 26th: Piper's counts were ALL good! We will be back next Friday for round three of chemo!!!!!! Piper is such a tough little girl! Love her more than anything in this world!!!!!
November 25: Piper has clinic first thing in the morning tomorrow! It is hard to believe that we will be 10 days into cycle 2 already! Hopefully all of her counts will be good and she has a good day of traveling...she does not seem to be a fan of the long car rides! Again, thanks to all of those that went to Piper's benefit in Ohio and all of those that gave blood in Piper's honor this weekend! We love you all!!!!
