Day 9: From Esther

Tonight was Ava's hardest night yet. She woke up from a late nap and began to cry uncontrollably. All the meds in her system and the restlessness from being in isolation had caught up to her.

Cancer is a horrible monster and I hate that my daughter suffers the wrath of a broken world. But we cried and kicked and screamed until we felt better. And eventually we did get over it.

Best line of the night was when Mike got to the hospital and we told him what happened. He took Ava in his arms and said this epic prayer:

Dear God, I want to beat the living crap out of cancer.
