Dear Father, please hold my child today.
Be with her this morning when she can't eat.
Be with her when she is nervous on the way to the hospital.
Be with her when she is anxious because she knows when they call her name, she has to go through the doors that start her chemo.
Calm her while she is anxious as they take her weight, height and the squeezie takes her blood pressure.
Hug her as we walk in to see the nurses who treat her and try not to fall in love with her, because they are afraid of losing her too.
Hold us both as she sits on my lap and I hold her as they put the needle in her chest.
Be with nurses who do this procedure.
Thank you for the nurses who do this and then crack jokes at each other all morning in love.
Be with her as she anxiously waits for her blood tests to come back.
Thank you for her grandparents who keep her occupied and smiling during the waiting times.
Be with the doctor who will examine her today, please guide their hands and their heart.
Thank you for the doctors that treats my child's body and spirit.

Hold her still while they take spinal fluid to be tested.
