I am thankful for my family, friends, and people that don’t even know me/us but still pray for Logan’s recovery. I am thankful for Logan’s little brother Peyton. We know how much you love and admire your big brother and know only you can push his buttons just right and get away with it;) I am thankful for my wife, Kelly. Every minute, hour, day is a challenge and your love and strength are amazing. I am thankful for family. We could not get through this without all of you. I am thankful for friends. You help keep us sane and positive during dark times. I am thankful for community. Everyone that has reached out to support us. Every message, “like”, smile, helps extremely! Most of all I am thankful for Logan. You are an amazing young man. Your strength, courage, smile is contagious. During your fight(s) you have inspired so many people to be better. You are a HERO!
We are currently awaiting a call from Seattle Children’s Hospital to find out what clinical trial Logan will be randomized into. Yes, you read that correctly. A computer picks what trial he will partake in. There is a total of 3 trials. All are very similar. One is just radiation and the other two involve chemo(s). Logan & mom will be admitted next Tuesday with a planned discharge day the following Saturday. Logan will be in a lead lined room and not able to get out of bed. They will provide him with an iPad, maybe x-box, and lots of on demand movies. He will have 24/7 Skype capabilities with Kelly in the next room. Kelly (aunt Traci & friend Mandy) will help with Logan’s daily care as the nurses only can monitor his progress outside of the room. When Kelly goes into the room she will have a radiation monitor on to make sure she is not exposed to too much radiation. They tell us an active parent is exposed to about an x-rays worth of radiation. After discharge Logan will be in isolation as he will still be radioactive. He will need to use his own bathroom, have his clothes washed separately, all utensils he uses have to be immediately washed in hot water. Saddest of all he is discouraged from hugging or being hugged.
We are going to go off the grid for a couple of days and go celebrate the holiday out in Ocean Shores with some friends and family. Where we are going has an indoor pool and yes Logan can swim!!! He is so excited! I will plan on updating everyone on Sunday when we return.
