Hello Ari's Angels. Lil update for u. We are currently finishing Ari's radiation treatments bak in Rapid City. Makes things a lot easier for us. Ari had to have a 2nd shunt put in about 2 wks ago. Its helpin a lot. Unfortunately Ari's care team doesn't seem to think the radiation is wrkn on her tumor like we wanted. So her precious lil life will b even shorter than we want. We want to make her remaining days as happy as possible n wen the time comes, give her the send off she so deserves. Plz help us help her have the best last memories of us all n give her the best funeral possible. Any and everything helps n is so very much appreciated. Plz keep us in ur prayers. Hid bless u all....
Afternoon Angels. Therapy is goin gud. Another wk down. That much closer to being able to go home for a lil while. We're extremely homesick lol. Ari is doin gud. Only side effects we've noticed so far is fatigue n hair loss. I don't think either one of us was ready for the hair loss. First time it was noticeable wen we brushed her hair we both cried. She luvs her hair so much. I want to cut my hair or shave my head so she won't b self conscious but she doesn't want me to. She said I'm too beautiful. She never ceases to amaze me. Watever comes next, we got this. Plz keep us in ur thots n prayers Angels. They keep us goin. Have a gud day all.
