We have been anxiously waiting to start Adam’s last round of chemo (cycle 8). It’s taken him a lot longer to recover this time, so he hasn’t been ready to start therapy yet. He was supposed to start chemo 2 weeks ago but wasn’t fully recovered from the last cycle (cell counts still too low). So we waited another week, but he was still not ready. We just got confirmation from the doctor that he will start his last round of chemo TODAY. Even though his counts are low, they are acceptable to start chemo. Today’s chemo is only a 1-day cycle, but it will be several hours.
Over the next 2 months Adam will have a series of scans and tests to confirm the cancer is completely gone, and determine whether more chemo or a biopsy is needed.
Adam has been eating well and enjoys eating solid foods now! He’s now 18.5 lbs and 13 months old. He has also taken his first few steps as of yesterday, which is so exciting for us! Below is a short video.
We wouldn’t be able to get through all this without your continued prayers and support. A million thanks 🙏.
