Margaret was diagnosed suddenly with cancer in April 2020. A biopsy of a swollen lymph node confirmed T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. She experienced very serious complications from her first month of chemotherapy, which ultimately caused her to suffer anoxic brain injury. Margaret slipped into a minimally conscious state, and remained in the hospital through both her 14 and 15th birthdays. She spent weeks in the PICU, on the oncology floor, at hospice house, and at inpatient rehab before coming home in June 2021. Survival and recovery were often uncertain. Our family keeps following her lead, one day at a time, as she works to emerge from coma and illness. This CaringBridge site has become a community of sorts - a way for people to be with us - especially during such isolated times. There has been healing in these posts and comments; we are awed by and grateful for the continuing energy and love and spirit that is shared here.
