Usually when I do an update it is at night (tired) or I try and squeeze one in at work. I don’t get very detailed but do more of a high level update to keep all of our friends & family informed.
Sooooo……cancer really sucks and is taking it’s toll. Thank God we have an amazing support group. Since Kelly is on FMLA she makes the daily trips to Seattle Children’s and is Logan’s primary caretaker. She does all medications, home hydration, feeding tube/bag etc. She has been through the training at the hospital and soon will receive her nursing certificate;). Where do I come in….support, help when I can. A lot of times I feel helpless.
Logan has been throwing up this week. When he throws up the NG tube that has been placed through his nose and into his stomach sometime comes up as well. Kelly then has to gag Logan and re-insert it. She then has to listen through a stethoscope to make sure she did not shove it into a lung. If she does not hear air in his stomach she pulls it back out and does it again. There are other side affects that come with the chemo but Logan would not appreciate me going into any details publicly….
What seems to distract Logan most is video games. On Wednesday night a friend from work, Jeff, and uncle Mike “nerded out” with Logan for many hours. Logan loved it! Uncle Mike, Aunt Kim, and Cousin Jake have been here this week helping out….Thank you! They leave tomorrow morning back to New York and my mom flies in from Tucson on Sunday to be here for a week.
So to everyone that takes the time to read my posts, share my posts, pray for my son, tell people about my son’s fight…Thank you. I will continue to update you when I can, sometimes brief, sometimes in detail.
