Owen was admitted to the children's hospital on may 25th for failure to thrive because he was not gaining weight and was not eating very well. He did really well for the first 3 months of his life and thrived in every way possible and reached every milestone a child should up until about 2 months ago. Owen started to refuse to eat his bottle so we thought that he had a formula allergy. So at his 4 months check up our pediatrician sent us to children's hospital which has been a blessing! They started off with a bunch of tests and the end result was with an MRI on his brain and they found a tumor. They then went on to do a biopsy and found that the tumor is cancerous and is categorized as a low- grade astrocytoma. Owen also went into surgery to have an implanted port put in his chest and a G-J tube (Gastro-jejunal tube) put in his stomach.
