Jordyn's Journey to Triumph Over ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia)

Bird - July 12th

Jordyn had a lumbar puncture on July 12th as well as a clinic visit.

This is when she was at the end of her steroid regimen(part of her chemotherapy) and so that is why her cheeks are so puffy.

Her wonderful child life specialist whom she loves dearly made her a special buddy. Jordyn called her Bird. Bird has a picc line just like Jordyn did, and she has a port like Jordyn does now.

Jordyn likes to play doctor with Bird, especially when she is having a hard time. It helps her so much to play with Bird with the things that scare her and intimidate her. It has helped her process things a lot better. She flushes Birds picc line, and she puts bandaids on her, makes her pee in a cup, and put tegaderm bandaids on her back when she herself has had to get a back poke.
