I think we’re going to be ok. No results from the bone scan but the CT scan indicated that the tumor has shrunk another centimeter. In our book that is GREAT news and we’ll take it. We meet with the surgeon on Thursday and will review the scans and schedule surgery. Our biggest question for […]

We had scans today. We had a very rocky start. I had to lie on the CT scan table with Sammy to get him to stay still. He was hungry (he was NPO for the scans, meaning no food or water since midnight) and cranky from waking up so early and I’d conned them into […]

It’s been great to be out of the hospital. It’s hot in San Diego (75 at the beaches, 90’s inland) and we’re making the most of it. We have been having water fights and playing videogames with Sam being the reigning champ at Super Mario GoKart. Our scans were moved to Friday 5/27 which is […]

We were sprung from the hospital Wednesday at noon. Sam is very happy to be home. He and Andy ran around last night in their Batman capes (Andy’s consists of a hand towel pinned to his shirt) and Sammy had Andy laughing so hard he got the hiccups. With Margot’s Aunt Anne/Uncle Don here from […]

We’re in the hospital since Sunday night at about 9pm. It’s a pretty routine visit – just a 101 fever which is an automatic admit when his white counts are low. We should get out of here tomorrow, Wednesday, which will be just in time for him to play with his Aunt Anne/Uncle Don who […]

All’s well on the homefront. Sam went to the outpatient clinic yesterday to have his blood checked. They do a CBC with differential which means they check out all aspects of his blood – red, white, & platelets. The great news is that his blood is fine so there was no need to do a […]

Sam is home – yeah! He came home Saturday and we’ve been having fun ever since. He’s a bit tired and still not eating as much as we’d like but it’s just great to have him home. Sam is a very sweet little guy and adores his mom. At the hospital on Friday, the staff […]

June 6, 2005 – Late Monday

Friday, May 6th, 2005

We just prepped Sam for his big day, explaining to him that the bump in his tummy is being removed. He’s won – that’s what we’ve told him. The cute thing is that he told Margot & I that “we helped a little bit also!” And then he thanked us for helping him. Very adorable. […]

Today is Day 4 of the 4 Day chemo infusion so we are very happy. Sam will finish chemo tonight at about 6 pm and will follow with a 24-hour infusion of fluids to flush his system. Sam has been a superstar through this. He’s subsisting on a diet of buttered raisin toast and water […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Sam’s doing well. We’re on day 3 of the 4 day treatment and we should be discharged sometime Saturday (I don’t think they’ll discharge him late Friday night). The big news is no roommate so far which is HUGE since our room at the hospital resembles the urban sprawl of Los […]
