Happy Birthday Andrew Paul Hutchison! You are four years old today. We love you and we are so proud of you! I can’t believe that you are four and then again, I can believe it, because sometimes you act like you are twenty. I’m know I’m not supposed to label, but you are FUNNY. So […]

Sam was admitted to the hospital this morning with a fever of 103 and feeling generally miserable. We did a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia – haven’t gotten it back yet. He needed blood and platelets today and his ANC is 230 -we’re hoping on the way up, not down. Argh. I wish he […]

Our scans are scheduled for next week. They’ll be on Wednesday and Thursday and we’ll be in doing chemo anyway so the timing actually works out. Dr. Sholler wants us to do at least a couple more rounds of chemo regardless of what the scans tell us. I was really hoping Sam would get a […]

Happy New Year! We had a fun New Year’s Eve at Darcy and Mike’s house. There were plenty of kids and they all had a ball. Darcy and Mike’s house is kid’s paradise. The best part of my night was right before we all watched the ball drop in New York (9pm our time)- the […]
