5th Cycle of Bridge Therapy
I can’t believe it is Thanksgiving next week. These last couple of weeks have just flown by. Sawyer and Calvin had a very fun Halloween! They went as Batman and Robin and got tons of candy and treats. On November 1st Sawyer had a long day at the hospital. He underwent updated MIBG, CT, and MRI Scans and a bone marrow aspiration. Good news! We are seeing more progress, his MIBG went down to a 3 from a 5. This week we are in the hospital for one last round of the bridge (combination) therapy. The plan right now is that he will have another updated MIBG scan in about 2 weeks and then he will begin his 1st Stem Cell Transplant the week of December 3rd. He has been doing very well and feeling good, so we pray that keeps up!!
This week there were some special visitors at the hospital. Players from the Chicago Bears came on Monday and spent time with the kids. Sawyer was a little nervous, but he did eventually take some pictures with them, and they gave Sawyer a Bears teddy bear and we gave them some Super Sawyer bracelets. Our Child Life Specialist told us that 55 members of the team we here. It was such a fun experience for the kids!

Thank you as always for reading. Please continue to keep Sawyer and our family in your prayers and intentions. Have a wonderful week and Happy Thanksgiving!
Until next time!
