It feels like forever but is all too familiar. Lauren is at clinic for her scheduled lumbar puncture today. This is by far the hardest part of treatment. It's overwhelming and scary. Watching her get sedated is hands down the hardest thing we have done. Even though she has had many it never gets easier. Luckily, Lauren is strong. At first I thought there was no way she knew what was actually going on. But now, I know she knows. She is fully aware that she is here and that she is getting treatment. It doesn't seem to phase her at all. She patiently waits in the play room serving tea to mom and dad. She calmly let's the nurses and doctors do what they need to do without any fuss. And, in the most Lauren kind of way, she still poses for the camera...
