Day +7

One week down.  Still no counts, as expected.  The little man is a warrior.  Plain and simple.

Bad diarrhea.  Feeding tube.  All sorts of pain.  Mucositis (lots and lots of mucus).  And you know what?  He still sits up and wants to color a picture for his big sister Claire.  Take that, cancer.  You piece of crap.

Have you hooked up the mouth suction yet? We should have hooked it up sooner for Aidan. Once we did, it helped Aidan big time with all the mucous...although it gets pretty nasty. The next few days will be tough...praying for those counts for you guys. Stay focused on the end result...a healthy, cancer-free little man!
Sending prayers and hugs,
