A Red Wig Like Mommy

Last night during her bath, Angelina’s hair finally began to fall out. I wasn’t prepared at all, as I had thought that it wasn’t until her NEXT chemo that it would….I understood wrong. It starts now, but will be gone by the end of the next round. Angelina has said that she wants a pink wig, a purple wig, a wig like her own hair and a red wig like mommy….we’ll see what the next steps are. DON’T CHOP YOUR HAIR YET. But thank you to all the people willing to donate to her!

Fever

Prayers are needed today! Angelina has been doing great, but last night she began to run a fever (a serious thing as her immune system is compromised by the Chemo). She was re-admitted to St. Barnabas last night to determine the cause and stop the fever. Prayers are greatly appreciated!
