Good evening to all of Hannah’s prayer warriors. Hannah had a great day after we managed her nausea this morning. From a sponge bath to a field trip to see the Christmas Tree at Winnie Palmer, overall, it was AMAZING!
I just wanted to take the time this evening to answer some of the questions I have been receiving lately. I figure I will answer any question that I have heard multiple times, so to eliminate any others curiosity.
One of the first questions that I hear a lot is how am I? Well, that is best answered by saying it depends on the time of day/night. I have been through fear, anger, worry, astonishment, hate, gratefulness, blessed, touched and loved. All I think are justified but tend to come in waves.
#2. How can you help us… CONTINUE PRAYING THROUGHOUT THIS ENTIRE JOURNEY.
THEN, if you are wanting to do more, the truth is, I struggle with this answer, but here are the facts. The chemo/radiation journey will last into June/July 2018. At that time, it is possible that a transplant would be our next step. Financially, I am not sure what I will be able to do in the way of work, but I have not lost hope; however, here it is….. If radiation is 6 weeks for her lung, and 12 weeks for her abdomen, tolls driving to and from those appointments will cost 650.00, not to mention gas.
Should we have to stay for the next 4 – 12 weeks in the hospital with 6 other week stays for her treatment….food alone, for me will be over $1050.00 and up to $1700.00.
I don’t expect anyone to cover anything, but to say these simple facts justify a great need for visa, master card, gas card and food gift cards or donations to the following sites…
#3. What does Hannah want for Christmas/birthday…
Here is a wish list she made on Amazon. Hannah’s Wish List
This might help give some ideas. As for Hannah’s sizes, they may fluctuate with her chemo but here they are. Hannah is 5’3″, size 9.5-10 adult shoe. She wears size 14/16 (mainly because of height) in youth or small in adult.
#4. Can you visit…..
The hardest position to be in is the one I am facing right now…Hannah and I would love to see you all and be lifted up continuously by each and every one of you. The reality is, we are only 10 days out from a near-fatal surgery and we are on day one of chemo regimen that will strip Hannah of all her infection-fighting ability. With this being said. Please PM or text me for times that are okay to visit.
Please keep in mind that any exposure to a cough, fever, virus or infection can ultimately be life-threatening.
I will be needing some help in the upcoming weeks as my mom leaves Monday and would love to be able to reach out to some individuals to sit with Hannah while I run errands if need be, or just some adult conversation while she rests.
I will say, that Hannah only has the ability to last about a 10-minute visit and should she be feeling sick, HATES people to see her like this.
I am so thankful for the donations, the gifts, the prayers. I will NEVER be able to thank you all personally, but believe me….every one of you has made a huge impact and difference in our lives.
All our love,
The Harger Girls – Hannah and Elizabeth Harger
