Peyton's Fight Against Leukemia
She has been at Nationwide Children's Hospital for close to 2 weeks now due to ongoing fevers. Finally, early this week they diagnosed her with CMV which is a common virus that people can get especially when their immune system is not functioning properly. She was started on an anti-viral on Monday. She continues to have intermittent fevers but the infectious disease team feels that it will take a while for the medication to work. In the meantime they are going to focus on keeping her hydrated and keeping her fevers managed with Tylenol. She did have an echocardiogram (US of the heart) this week in case there was some infection hiding in her heart which was normal (thank goodness!). She was also saw a nutritionist today to make sure she is getting everything she needs nutritionally. One good thing through all of this is that Peyton loves to eat and has really had no issues with that!
I would like to ask that everyone continues to pray and support Peyton, Ashley and Casey during this difficult time.
Our family cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support, prayers and love. We cannot do it without you!
I have attached a few pictures to make you smile. I mean, how can this little face not make you smile?! She is the cutest!
You all will be in my prayers ! If you need anything please let know or if you ever to someone to talk to , I'm here! Keep your heads up and always look to the lord.
What support we have from our communities. Keep fighting strong baby girl. We are all thinking of you and your family. Prayers always.
Prayers going out to family and friends in this time of need.
