About Us

Our family of 6 (dad Adam, mom Sherry, big sister Abby and little brothers Isaac and Brady -- who was born on December 14, 2010) joined the ranks of pediatric cancer fighters when our 4-year old son Logan was diagnosed with a dangerous and highly malignant form of brain cancer in mid-August 2010. Logan's cancer journey began abruptly on Sunday, August 15, when his right eye suddenly turned inward during dinner. Twenty-four hours later, we were checking into Children's Hospital Oakland and finding out that life sometimes takes you places you'd never, ever imagine yourself going.

10/24 Stats

And they're good! His WBC count is up to 15.4, HGB is down slightly to 9.5, and platelets are up to 72 (from 50 yesterday, no transfusion). So it looks like the double dose of GCSF (which he began last night and so far, no signs of bone pain) is doing its job quite well. As a result of the numbers, the resident on duty discontinued two of his antibiotics. And he's been off the oxygen for a few hours with no ill effects.

After sleeping from 10 to 1:30, he's up and cheerful. As close to being 'himself' as I've seen in quite some time. He was extremely pleased with his new I-Screamer Pixar car and spent lots of time talking about it and telling his nurse, Heather, about how Mater flips him over during the Mater's Tall Tale toon. Then we watched some bullriding. Man, if you want some interesting commentary on the rodeo, ask Logan. A few minutes ago he asked to sit by the window, so that's where we are as I write. He's working on (what else?) a Lightning McQueen puzzle and Looney Tunes are playing in the background. As much as Looney Tunes annoy me, it's almost like a symphony.
