Our site dedicated to Gabriella Cosner,
our oldest baby at age 4 who was diagnosed

WE WILL FIGHT THIS!!!
Wednesday, April 4, 2012
We made it through another day and once again my little girl was my strength through a trying day. Gabriella was on to us this morning when we put the numbing cream on her port. The cream goes on about an hour before they "access" it. They use the term "access" to describe plunging a large needle through her chest into the port. It did not really bother G but I nearly passed out when they did it. G got pretty scared when two nurses came in to do the access. I held her on my lap and the nurses were very quick and efficient which made it much easier for both of us. Gabriella was nervous but as soon as it was over I think she was surprised at how little it hurt and it will probably only affect me in the future. I don't think Kris is going to let me go to the hospital any more if I can't stop being such a baby. Gabriella is home and very happy. She is watching Mickey Mouse and acting like nothing happened. She will do this every wednesday for the next 40 weeks. The doctors were pleased to see how good she looked and at how well she is eating and of course pooping (again with the pooping?) They will draw more blood tomorrow to get more information on how well here liver is handling the chemo drugs.
Once again thanks for all the wonderful support and prayers and well wishes. We could not do it without all of your behind us. We feel you every step of the way.
