As each day passes



Each week there is blood work and or chemo, as each week passes I silently count down to the end of jacob’s treatment. I pray and hope each and every day that every thing will continue as well as it has and on schedule, which should put us in the middle of next year, 2010. It is hard to believe we have been doing this since he was 3 years old, 2006.

We were able to get away this past weekend, we went riding. Jacob just has a blast on his quad, but he it not that little dare devil YET! LOL But of course that is easier on me :O)

Thank you for all your prayers for our little Jacob,

Valentine Love.......


Can you feel it!!! We ventured out to a small and quite resturaunt on Valentines Day, we were not sure if we wanted to go out at all due to Jacob's counts. We got where we were going and it was empty, talk about lucky!! So all three of us had a nice Valentine's dinner :o)

We go back into clinic on Monday for blood work and Jacob probably won't have chemo for about 2 wks.

Thank You for your prayers,
Melisa

Love is........


Jacob is feeling well after his High Dose Chemo last week. He has lots of energy, which I thank God for every day!! The weather here has been rain rain and more rain. The storms just keep coming, back to back, but I also know we need it :o) It is so cute Jacob is so excited about Valentines Day, he keeps walking around with a balloon I got earlier and telling me Mommy I love you!
I hope every one has a nice Valentines Day where ever you might be.

Just bringing every one up to speed......

Jacob is our couragous little hero! He was diagnosed with ALL in July 2006, was in maintenance stage of his treatment when he relapsed May 2008. All we can have is the HOPE, STRENGTH & COURAGE to take us through each and every day!

Hi every one, let me just bring us up to date. Jacob at 3 yrs old was having constant fevers and just feeling yucky and it was then when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in July 2006. We spent the first 3 1/2 wks in the hospital, with wkly chemo and spinals. He took every thing pretty well, but the nurses help alot :O) We had some hospitals stays due to fevers and one infection in his double line hicman(spelling?) which was removed and had the portacath put in. which has its pros & cons, he really does not like getting poked every time we go to the doctors, but it is getting easier. But he is so excited about being able to take full baths and swimming WOOO HOOO :o) . We were just about at the 2yr mark when he was starting to have headaches and nasia, at that point we found out the Leukemia was back, talk about devastating, he was doing so well. They found out he had a small amount of cells in his spinal fluid and bone marrow. It was May 23rd 2008 when he starting treatment all over again and more of it at the age of 5 :O( The first 4 wks was 5 chemo's wkly, 3 of them in his spinal fluid & high doses of Steroids. He held up ok, was always tiered, felt yucky and really moody, but we delt. This last past wk he took a break from all the poisons and he is going to start up on Monday June 30th 2008, my stomach is tied up in knots. At least Jacob says he has fun at the hospital, I tell you its the nurses :o) I tell you, mentally Jacob takes it a lot better. It is us as parents that do the massive worring, stressing, anxity attacks, sleepless nights, I can just keep going. NO NOT AGAIN!!! Jacob had a 2nd relapse almost a year later when we checked into the Hospital on Easter Sunday 2009, the nightmere restarts, my stomach is tied up in knots. At least Jacob says he has fun at the hospital, I tell you its the nurses :o) I tell you, mentally Jacob takes it a lot better. It is us as parents that do the massive worring, stressing, anxity attacks, sleepless nights, I can just keep going.Thank you for every ones prayers!
