Kennedy was two years old.
She had been sick for awhile, but no one was really sure what was going on...
A virus perhaps... causing her platelets to tank.
Causing her to be tired. All. The. Time.
Causing her hands to cramp, making her drop her toys and cry out, "Oww!"
Finally, causing her pediatrician to send us to the hematology/oncology clinic at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital which led to a bone marrow aspiration.
Five years ago today I got the phone call that my sweet little girl had Acute Myelogenous Leukemia.
And our lives were changed forever.
Today, we celebrate her. We celebrate Kennedy's life and how thankful we are for the blessing of her.
One more month and this beautiful girl will be declared "Cancer Free!"
Thank you, Jesus!
