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.

Admitted.

That's right: Logan is being admitted to CHO as I type. And I'm PISSED.

As it turns out, his hemoglobin level wasn't the only unusual one. His triglycerides, which should be a double-digit number, were 13,000. Thirteen THOUSAND. That figure pushed a panic button in someone, and now they're in the process of trying to figure out what in blazes is going on.

I'm speechless. No, not really. I'm just so angry and frustrated and feeling so utterly abandoned and annoyed that I have nothing productive --and nothing that wouldn't be censored heavily-- to type.

  2. Glad you posted. Praying specifically. Asking God to protect Logan and commanding the triglycerides to come down to normal range in the name of Jesus! Praying for Logan's medical team to have God's wisdom in treating him.

  7. Speechless is about the best way to sum that up. All I can think is that the steroids boosted that number somehow, since they are related structurally.

    Praying that they figure this out, stat.
