Fighting for Paislee

Donation protected
Late June 27th, 2016 Paislee, was admitted to Children's Mercy Hospital for Thrombocytopenia. They wanted to run more tests as there were symptoms present that were very concerning. About 2 am that following morning they told us it was Leukemia. There were complications diagnosing her so they ran more tests, tried to get a sample of her bone marrow, and were unsuccessful so they took a piece of her bone. That Thursday, they officially diagnosed her with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). There are many subtypes to this disease and Paislee had the worst of it. Only 3% have this disease resulting in only a 50/50 chance. They started chemo immediately 3 hours a day, every 12 hours. She has developed a serious rash as a side effect to one of her chemos, has cellulitis, and fluid in her hip joint causing her leg to swell significantly.  She is on an antibiotic for these things and it's helping. They have placed a feeding tube because her throat is starting to develop mucositis.

Janee has taken a leave of absence from work so she can help support Paislee during this time. Paislee will be in and out of the hospital doing treatments. The timeline for that is unknown at this time, that relies on how Paislee responds to all of her treatments and if different health levels stay normal. She has already recieved several blood tranfusions and platelets to help with these.

Our little P is doing the best she can and has had her good and bad days. When she is fever free, she is able to cruise the halls in a little car (blue is her favorite) and has a little family of pigeons outside her window that she has named Walter and Penny (okay Janee named them) that she loves to watch.

There are fundraisers in the works, including bracelets and t-shirts that we will be getting in to help raise money. I will update everyone on those events when the dates and times are set up.

Thank you to everyone for your continued prayers and support for our family. It's overwhelming to see how loved our little warrior is! No one fights alone and she WILL beat this!

I will be posting updates here when I can, check back to see her journey.
