Happy New Year!! We just wanted to do a quick update about Sawyer. He completed his 1st Stem Cell Transplant and transitioned to the Ronald McDonald House on Thursday (1/4). The mucositis he developed has pretty much cleared up in his mouth, but he does still have some pain in his throat. He is still on constant NG feeds and receives IV fluids at night which Jeremy and I administer.
Currently, Sawyer must go to the hospital 3 days a week to make sure his counts are good. As of right now the plan is, he will stay at Ronald McDonald house until he starts his next stem cell transplant which is tentatively scheduled for January 30th.
The good news about being here is that Sawyer can play in common areas, go outside, and there are no visitor restrictions so anyone who is feeling well can come and visit him. We are also very happy about spending time together as a family again. If any of you are interested in visiting Sawyer, here is the website for the Ronald McDonald House: https://rmhccni.org/lurie-childrens-house/.
As always thank you for your continued support. Please continue to keep Sawyer and our family in your prayers and intentions. Wishing you all many blessings in this New Year! We will keep updating with Sawyer’s progress.
Until next time!
Jen, Jeremy, Sawyer, and Calvin
