Help Care for Quinn

This is not an easy post to make and I have to do it while my girl "sleeps", hiding in the dark bathroom so she cant see or hear we cry. We, as parents, havent been able to fully process what is happening as we attempt to retain some normalcy for all 3 girls. I need to start this by saying:

As many of you know, Quinns been puking every morning for over a month. We have done xrays which showed bloackages in her bowels. 2 sets of xrays, 3 medications and 44 days later enough was enough and I took her to the stollery with the mindset of Im not leaving till yoi fix her.
Well, thanks to the amazing and incredibly observant skills of a peds emerg doctor, she caught something other doctors missed. A twitch in Quinns eye.
She immediately ordered a MRI and i KNEW something major was wrong the second the MRI went from being 10minutes to almost 45. Quinn handled that shit like a champ. No sedation and she was so incredibly still the doctors and nurses did believe that she did it with no sedation.

Sadly, every parents worst nightmare came true for us. Our baby, our dancer, our happy go lucky, loves everyone has a tumor on her brain. Its on her Cerebellum. And its small. We have a lot of positives for such a bullshit fucked up diagnosis.

So thanks to the amazing actions of our neihbours and family we got our older 2 settled in best we can.

But heres where our hearts break and we dont ever ask for help but this time I am. This is probably the WORST time of year this can happen. We will likely be here until Christmas if not spending Christmas here. Greg has also just gone back to work after being laid off for 6 months so its a new job and financially we canr afford for him to take huge amounts of time off ( but he will be here as much as possible even if its means quitting his job). And i will not be working at my clinic or second job at all during this time. But the big one, is saturday is Aidys bday and I know shes scared and worried.
So we may need to ask some of you for help. From getting kids to and from school to activities to just being a shoulder for them to cry on because this is royally fucked and not going to lie we do not know up from down right now.
While we considered keeping it quiet and private, I realize we cant do this alone. The stress will be unbearable if we try. So im not trying. We will update everyone as we can and we need all the positive vibes and reiki ane prayers and whatever else you can send our way.

Our hearts are shattered but our little girl is the strongest fighter I know. She was comforting her sisters on the phone last night and the compassion abd understanding she shows at 6yrs old means I will move heaven and earth to fight for her too.
