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.

Because we can never have enough drama...

I didn't post about this earlier because I didn't want to take the focus away from my sweet boy, but now I feel like I must. When I was discharged from the hospital, I went ahead and consented to have the DTaP shot. It all went off without a hitch, we left, and I thought nothing of it again... until about 5 PM. That's when the 'soreness at the injection site' -- my upper left arm -- I was told to expect became searing pain and stiffness not only at the site, but along my upper back and the lefthand side of my neck.

I took a Hydrocodone tab, sure that it would help, but it hasn't done much, and I'm here in pretty major pain, unable to sleep or get comfortable and assuming that a trip to the ER is probably going to happen sometime soon.

So yes, we can never have enough drama, it seems. Please pray that whatever is causing my pain, immobility and discomfort will right itself soon so I can sleep and not worry.


  1. Call me! I can come over! (really this is Jen but whatever works at this point!)

  2. ((((Praying)))) Oh Sherry - like you need yet another thing to deal with. Keep us updated.
