I have always been honest and open to Allegra and explained to her what's going on, what's going to happen and why this is happening.
We have a mantra that I whisper into Allegra's ear while I hold her close and firm in my arms. Its assuring her that I am with her all the way. I say this while she is having procedures, as she goes off to sleep under a GA or whenever she has fears or is unsure about what's going on.
You came to me, I came to you
You dream of me, I dream of you
You love me, I love you
You trust me, I trust you
You believe in me, I believe in you
You have faith in me and I have faith in you.
Baby we are strong spirited girls and you will get through this.
You are my miracle and you will recover.
