She's Been Benched


My sweet cheer girl has been sick for two weeks. We found out this morning she has a virus which has enlarged her spleen and her liver. Her white blood cell count is low. How can this be? The poor thing. She has worked for seven months for this Saturday - a big cheer competition in Kansas City. She worked so hard last year that she was placed front and center this year. Now, she is on the bench and has to watch her team. She cried a little and got mad a little but is resigned. We will go cheer on the team. She will wear her new uniform, we will do cheer hair and cheer makeup. She will be okay.

  2. Oh, I'm so sorry for your sweet girl---this is hard stuff to take--especially when she's worked so hard for it! But, it sounds like she's a determined girl, and I'm sure she can and will be more than okay! Hope she feels better VERY soon!
