Casey Fisher's Journal
Four More Weeks
Written Feb 7, 2014 10:19am by Alan FisherCasey's weekly clinic days every Monday at CHLA will continue for another four weeks. Once this last cycle is complete he will need to visit the hospital once every month for maintenance chemotherapy that will be ongoing for two years. As of the last visit the doctors have told us that Casey must lose weight. Since he has been out of the hospital he has gained all of the weight back that he lost and then some. The doctors told us that cancer likes fat cells and we definitely do not want him to relapse so we are all changing our eating habits to start losing weight together.
Casey has been keeping up with his school work and attends school three days a week when he's not doing chemotherapy. He has almost completely caught up with his class and in the coming weeks he will be back on pace with them.
Casey is a very fortunate boy to have so much support and love around him and as always we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Better late than never
Written Dec 2, 2013 4:45pm by Alan FisherNovember 29th was the one year mark since Casey was diagnosed with leukemia. This past year has been an extremely tough one for us all and felt like two or three years instead of one.
We didn't want Thanks Giving to go by without saying THANK YOU for the awesome support from everyone.
Although Susan and I were a little nervous about taking Casey camping and dirt bike riding we charged forward and made our annual trip to the desert. It was just like old times except for the fact that Casey can't ride his bike yet. Casey had plenty of other activities to keep him busy like driving Mark and Teri's Polaris Razor, learning to drive our Rhino for the first time, running his RC cars, shooting his BB gun, finding geo cashes, playing videos games, watching movies and so on...
That being said we are so thankful that by the grace of God Casey is doing good.
Casey has another lumbar puncture with chemotherapy and will also be starting another round of chemo on Wednesday of this week along with a bone marrow biopsy taken to be analyzed to make sure there are no leukemia cells. Casey has about 14 more weeks of chemo then he will be on maintenance chemo for about 3 & 1/2 years.
He continues to inspire us all as he marches forward with progress in the fight. And never does he complain about it✨🙏✨

Written Oct 26, 2013 1:03pm by Alan FisherSusan checked Casey's temperature this morning just before 6:00 am and it spiked up to 101.5. So we were directed back to the E.D. at San Antonio to get checked out. All of the labs came back good and he is getting a booster dose of antibiotics through his port. Hopefully this is just from the pneumonia that they diagnosed him with earlier this week. His cough is loosening up and he feels good. After he is done with the antibiotics we will be going home. Case has an appointment at CHLA on Monday with his primary doctor and of course we will be closely monitoring him for the rest of the weekend.
