This is going to be brief because I want to go snuggle with the kiddos.

Grant is doing GREAT!! He is out of his braces and is walking EVERYWHERE!! He still is not perfect and falls now and then, but doing sooooo much better. We have survived the last round (hopefully) of hospital chemo! Grant never had to be re-admitted and his counts have fully recovered. He has actually been able to go to school these past two weeks!!

We met with Dr. Dreyer on Wednesday and will start his Maintence on Monday...

Grant's daddy here.  Grant finished his last hospital chemo on Sunday. We are thrilled that he has completed that portion of his treatment but we are also very sad that we will not be seeing his nurses, PCA's and therapists on a regular basis. These people have become like family to us.  They treat Grant like he is their own child and we will always love them for it. 

We had a great party for Presley and Grant at the hospital on Sunday afternoon which was a lot of fun for everyone. As you  kn...

We have made it to the floor - rm 929. This is right next to the room where we started the journey. Grant has had his spinal tap and bone marrow biopsy already. We are now just waiting for the chemo to start. I don't think his nurse has even received those from the clinic doctors yet, so I am guessing we won't get started until around 8:00 p.m. tonight - if we are lucky!

I will keep you posted on how he does this week. And again, please feel free to come see him. His "end of hospital chemo" pa...

Grant counts are coming up!!! We fully expect to be admitted on Wednesday, Oct. 6 for Grant's last round of "hospital" chemo. Even though he has 14 months ahead of him taking oral chemo, this is a huge deal for him and our entire family. 

Like I said in an earlier post, we will be celebrating this time with him. PLEASE feel free to stop by and see him at the hospital at anytime this week. I know in the past I have not wanted many visitors, but we do now. His "last hospital chemo" party will ta...
