One day at a time…….

One day at a time…….

We met with Logan’s team this morning via conference call.  Currently we are all in agreement for Logan to continue being a teenager and enjoying the daily activities that accompany that i.e. girls, friends, girlfriends, Xbox, being physically connected to your phone, ignoring your parents, sleeping a lot, staying up as late as you can etc. The team/family will evaluate things daily, weekly and decide next steps based on what is presented to us via new trials and/or Logan’s condition….

Decisions no parents should have to make…..

Decisions no parents should have to make…..

We have met with Logan’s team and at this point don’t know what to do. Options are to have Logan do the antibody treatment again with 1/2 the chemo but this treatment possibly could do more harm than good.  Doing this again would also DQ him from other trials if available.  There is also a small chance this may stabilize the cancer.  He would start this on Monday. Do nothing right now and hope another trial opens up that Logan…

Another week of scans and anxiety…..

Another week of scans and anxiety…..

This Wednesday/Thursday we are up at Children’s again getting scans and a bone marrow aspiration to see if we continue in the current study he is in.  If you were to conduct a visual scan of Logan you would never guess anything is wrong.  He feels and looks great!  He actually for the first time in 6+ months went out in public yesterday not wearing a hat!  His hair has grown back and he looks amazing. Holidays were/are continue to…

Logan qualified for trial…..

Logan qualified for trial…..

Good news…Logan qualified for trial explained in last blog post.  We start Wednesday.  We had a pretty anxious weekend…….as of last Friday his team of doctors were unsure because his thyroid was showing ranges that could disqualify Logan from trial leaving us with limited/no options moving forward. We did not see our teenage boy most the weekend as he stayed the weekend at a friends staying up all night playing video games.  Some normalcy! #loganstrong

What’s next…..

What’s next…..

Thank you everyone for the thoughts and prayers.  Obviously it has been a tough last 19+ hours.  Our family is doing fine and are looking this in just another speed bump in Logan’s recovery. More importantly Logan continues to amaze with his positive attitude.  This morning he was commenting on how many of his friends on Instagram were wishing him well and re-posting #loganstrong.  He does not talk about it much but really appreciates the support.  I warned him he…

Prayers needed…….

Prayers needed…….

Once again we ask for your thoughts and prayers as Logan goes through his scans both today and tomorrow.  Logan is creating his own road map in defeating cancer so everything is literally one day at a time. We have had a wonderful break from the hospital.  Logan has been enjoying lots of time with friends, going to school, and of course LOTS of Xbox. We want to take this time to thank the team at Keller Williams in Federal…

Logan is doing great!

Logan is doing great!

Logan has been doing/feeling great!  He has been going to school and returning to somewhat normalcy.  Above are his grades ending his first semester. Logan’s platelets continue to go up.  Last week they were in the 80’s!  This means his marrow is working.  I can’t recall the last time they were this high.  This means the stem cell transfusion we did seemed to work. After meeting with Logan’s doctor a couple weeks ago we decided to let his body rest…

Logan getting stronger day by day…..

Logan getting stronger day by day…..

Logan has been feeling great!  He is slowly putting on weight and getting stronger.  He had a local blood draw on Saturday and his counts are on the rise!  This is great news!  The doctor even let us cancel the weekly scheduled visit today because of how he Logan is doing.  Canceling the appointment is good on two fronts: 1. Logan & mom did not need to sit in traffic for 3 hours for a quick appointment. 2. Logan gets…
