Team Presley- Leukemia Fund

Update for Presley Jo....
First I want to say thank you to everyone who has been praying for Presley....   ️
Presley has completed the first 8 months of her 3 year treatment plan.   She has done exceptionally well with a few issues along the way.
     In October we were told that there was a national shortage of one of her main chemo drugs and it was unknown if her doses would be available.
     In November we began to see some signs of neuropathy in which she began to walk with a limp.   
    In December she had an allergic reaction to one of her chemos.   The moment her face began to turn blood red and her room filled with doctors and nurses was one of the scariest things we have lived through.  
     In February her oncologist made the decision to try the chemo she had the reaction to again.   This time she would get the infusion extremely slow.  Over 8 hours, with a designated nurse and an allergist and oncologist steps away.   I know Logan and I stared at her for 8 hours straight and barely took a breath. 
     In March she was sent for an MRI for her ongoing limp.   The results showed she had necrosis of the hip.   This may be a permanent condition caused by steroid treatments.  We are hopeful that this will get better over the next couple years, although it's not easy telling a 7 year old that she can not run or jump.   
     Within those months we have numerous visits to the ER due to fever.  To complicate things even more now all of us are dealing with the threat  of COVID19.  Of course she is a part of the vulnerable population.   This makes every trip to the doctors even scarier than before.   Plus only one parent is allowed to accompany her, putting stress on us and her. 
 Through all of this God continues to answer prayers and Presley goes through it all with a smile on her face.
     
Thanks again for everyone's support and prayers ️!
