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…

Slowly Back to School……

Slowly Back to School……

Logan has started getting his strength back and will go back to school today.  He is also starting to get his appetite back as well.  His team of doctors are keeping an eye on his thyroid as it has showed increased marks.  They will test it again in a month. What’s next….. We will continue to monitor his counts (platelets, white & red blood cells).  He did get platelets yesterday.  He will continue to have blood draws every week.  Currently…

Stem Cell Transplant Day….

Stem Cell Transplant Day….

Logan and I (dad) are at Seattle Children’s all day today getting his stems cells transfused back into him.  These stem cells were removed and sent to a lab sometime ago.  The purpose of doing this is to see if we can help “jump start” his body into producing platelets, white, & red blood cells.  He is getting platelets as well today. It’s going to be a long day….we headed north at 6am this morning.  It took us 2.5 hours…

Hopefully home tomorrow…..

Hopefully home tomorrow…..

Logan has had a pretty rough week.  Body temperature has been consistently around 102/103 degrees.  He has needed 2 bags of red blood cells and will probably need platelets.  His pain level this morning for the first time was described by him above a 10 on the 1-10 scale.  Knowing his pain tolerance….he is hurting.  The team of nurses were able to control it pretty quickly.  Nausea has been sporadic but has been controlled by medicine.  He is also dealing…

Back to the hospital……

Back to the hospital……

Logan is back-up at Seattle Children’s Hospital for the week receiving more antibodies with a lighter dose of chemo.  The plan is next week to transfuse his stem cells that have been frozen back into him to try and “jump start” his system.  As his dad, it’s hard to see him have to go through this again.  He has been getting stronger…slowly.  He had a good week back at school.  I didn’t even see him this past couple of days…
