Ok enough of my ramblings onto the update:
This last round was pretty rough and intense for all of us. I am glad it is over and we won't have to do it again. Two Thursdays ago Sawyer developed hand, foot, and mouth disease. Ugh! It is true what parents say... It is TERRIBLE! I ended up taking him to Riley so they could check him out. They gave him some fluids and then sent us home. The Virus has to run its course. No antibiotic will help. :( He handled it with flying colors like he does everything. This past Thursday he had a count check and it showed that his hemoglobin was low. So on Friday my wonderful parents took him to Riley to get a blood transfusion. He will have another count check this Friday and then will start his next phase Monday the 17th. This phase is a repeat of one he has already done. It will be every 10 days and each time the dosage of chemo will be increased. He handled this phase well the last time so hopefully he will again. This phase will last until November when he will finally enter Maintenance. Woo Hoo!
Continuing the fight!
