Today's agenda: possible surgery. :(

So mike stayed with Cashy last night and he ended up needing a blood transfusion and a platelet transfusion. Both levels were low. His white count has came up though to 3.3 so that's great.
He had his first proton radiation treatment today, for treatment number 11. 19 more to go! Everything went well and he no longer needs to be intubated each time now, since he will be laying on his back from now on. His chin was really red when he got done from the mask rubbing. Hopefully they can fix that so it doesn't breakdown his skin. He was really delirious when he woke up today and kept asking for Daddy. Daddy needed a nap though from being up all night long.
So when we got back to the floor, the oncologist was up here and took a look at his port (which is way redder and sore today) and he ordered a surgery consult for possible removal of his port. Were still waiting for them to come up, so I will update when we hear.


  1. Will they put in a new port then, or go back to IV? Ports are so nice when they are acting right. He is just so little, so I would think that they really want to keep a port in him. I'll be curious to see what they decide is best for the little guy. I hope you are feeling better today, now that your counts are up a little bit Cashy! This must be you posting today then Kallie? Here is a big (((hug)) from back home for you!

  2. I'm very sorry to see your family going through this and I wish the very best for you all.

  3. I pray your child will get better...Keep up the good work and best of luck.
