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.

Tonight and Tomorrow

As of now, Logan's checked back into CHO and will have his line removed and replaced... 'sometime tomorrow'. That's as good a time estimate as they can give, apparently, which is naturally maddening to me. He'll be NPO (no food or drink) from after dinner tonight until the morning, so hopefully there will be a way he can be taken early in the day. Given his re-discovered love of food of late, it would be horrible if he had to wait for hours for the procedure to happen. Then he'll be observed for a few hours, and if all looks okay, they should be able to head home again. So if all goes absolutely ideally, they could be home by the later-afternoon hours.

I don't know what it all means for our Thanksgiving plans (a dinner at 3 PM), but I guess there's nothing I can do about it so there's no point in dwelling.

I'm just so annoyed and mad and frustrated. I fault myself for not intervening more quickly when I saw the fight starting to break out. I felt awful this morning and early afternoon and was trying to just relax; it never occurred to me that this kind of thing would happen -- especially not the day before Thanksgiving. (Though given our history, I'm not sure why I didn't expect some sort of challenge to pop up about now.)

So that's where we are for now.


  1. Sending lots of prayers, hugs, and positive vibes to Logan, you, and the whole family.

  2. I'm sorry Sherry. I read about what happened and I'm sure you're so beyond frustrated. Thinking of you a lot today and I will be tomorrow as well. Sending hugs and prayers.

  3. Praying that things 'go to schedule' and they can get him in to surgery early so you can get him out quickly... I feel your frustration ..

  4. I'm so sorry, Sherry. I hope he can get out quickly and it's just a small bump in your day.


  5. Continued prayers for Logan and your family. Hugs to you all.

  6. Love you guys! Praying you get a Thanksgiving together, whether it's Thursday at 3 or a little delayed. With lots of young energetic kids at home, this sort of thing had to happen sometime or another (too bad it happened now), and I'm pretty sure Abby and Isaac will be much more careful after this traumatic experience. Hang in there!

  7. Sherry, So sorry for the myriad of enveloping you right now. The same way that neither Abby or Logan are to blame for any of this, neither are you. That is why these things are called accidents! I hope that by the time you read this, you are all back together at home! Continuing to pray for all of you!
