This morning started with a call from Seattle Children’s letting us know they needed to re-schedule Logan’s scans to next week because the special radioactive dye they inject into him was delayed in transport due to an ice storm. Kelly and Logan decided to go to the scheduled meeting with Doctor Park anyway to discuss his symptoms. Upon meeting with Dr Park they were able to have the dye sent via FedEx and have the scans done this Friday.
The visit with Dr Park was to go over symptoms as well as talk about options/new trials. We had the possibility of 3 trials. As the meeting continued Logan’s blood results came in and we found out his platelets, very unexpectedly, have plummeted making him ineligible for 2 of the 3. The low platelet count is also an indication the cancer is spreading quicker in his bone marrow.
The conversation then moved to we need to do something fast. So Logan will be admitted Monday to do the same antibody & chemo treatment he was doing toward the end of last year. The goal of this treatment is to hopefully slow growth.
Dr Park also started the conversation with us to look at gradually introducing hospice.
Prayers much appreciated.
