Collin Henry's Journal
bone pain and headaches
Written Mar 9, 2014 10:59pmSo mr. Collin has been complaining to me a lot about his legs hurting...more so at night. I hoping it is just normal growing pains but with his history and the frequency of the pain the onc has decided to do a bone marrow biopsy and spinal tap as well due to headaches. He said he's not worried...but I feel like he wouldn't be doing it if he wasn't worried ya know. Anyway like to let everyone know that I started working 3rd shift about a week ago. Just as a stocker and back room at walmart ...but its def good to have the added income. We have been struggling for far too long!
Also would like to ask y'all to keep collins oldest sibling Lacey in your prayers and all...she has been having ongoingn pain headaches and general sinus issues since November and a ct has revealed that there is "something" in her sinus cavity...they don't know what it is but given the family history they want to operate to remove it and clean out her sinuses on April 18th. As of now everyone is just trying to stay busy...
Written Feb 2, 2014 2:25pmHey everyone. Well looks like we get another month cancer free for our boy. His white count continues to rise and platelets dropped by about 30k, but overall things look normal. We are checking in to see when he needs his follow up with radiation oncology, but otherwise, all is well on the homefront!
it's that time again

Hey all, It's that time again. Collin had blood drawn the other day and it looked good. White count continues to rise, which is good, but scares this momma at the same time. But in all reality it's not scary till it surpasses 10, we are at 6.somthing now. Everything else looks stable especially the platelets which is a huge marker for us too, but he's been hanging out in the 180s on that front. I should be relaxing but I am just not. I am nervous as every. I am hoping these nerves will eventually subside or at least fade a bit into the background. But that will take time!
Anyway, Patrick and Collin both have checkups on the 29th. Patrick's early bird MRI is at 8:15 his stuff was originally the following week, but money is tight so we had to bump his up. We just can't afford two trips to UNC in two weeks. It's sucky but it just is what it is. Hopefully things will be changing for us in the very near future!
That's about it for now, I will update after we get some results next week! cross everything and pray!
