Update

Tyler's counts are moving up, but still very slowly. His white counts are not high enough, so the Destroyers game will need to be skipped again.

The plan is to start round 7 of chemo on Monday, but that may not happen. We really need the ANC up to 1,000, and there is a long way to go.

We got some much needed good news...Stef received a very good update from his CT scans. That is great news. And that is after coming back from his "Bucket List" fishing trip. Great news. Also, I heard that Kylee was feeling so good that she drove herself to her hospital appointment. Very cool And Tristan is feeling strong. His Burkitt's relapsed during his Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World. He is now preparing for his bone marrow transplant. Sinjin is hanging in there as he is going through more radiation. Please keep all of them in your prayers.


The best thing we ever did was meet with the doctors at MD Anderson. I wish we had done it much sooner. It was the first time we actually had a doctor take about saving Tyler, rather that following a "one size fits all" protocol. We were able to have frank conversations about other options and we finish out the treatments.
