Hello. We had such a fantastic weekend with family and friends celebrating Sawyer’s 4th Birthday. We would like to thank everyone who came to celebrate with us. Sawyer was so happy to see everyone of you. In addition thanks to everyone that has sent boxes full of stuff. Sawyer has so much fun opening the boxes and seeing all the fun and activities inside. I especially like helping Sawyer build all the new Lego sets we got this week. Something really therapeutic about building those Legos.
Sawyer was seemingly back to his normal self the past week while we were at home. He enjoyed playing with his toys, soaking in Netflix on the couch, and most importantly sleeping in his comfy cozy bed.
Yesterday Sawyer had an outpatient procedure done to place a central venous catheter into his chest. This catheter is more long term than the peripheral inserted catheter he had inserted in his arm. It lasted about 2 hours total, and he was quite upset when he woke up due to some discomfort but was able to calm down. We were discharged in the late afternoon and he was very excited to get home. He said to me last night, “Daddy, I’m starting to get used to the hospital.” I wish he didn’t have to, but glad he is more at ease with taking trips to the hospital.
As Jen mentioned in the previous blog post round two of chemo starts this week! This one is outpatient so we will be able to sleep in our own beds for this round.
This year on May 20th there is the Move for the Kids 5K Walk/Run. Jen’s sister Bridgett has started a team, and we would like to invite anyone to join us in the walk/run. If you are unable to participate please you can support by donating to our team. Join or donate here.
Thanks again for reading our posts. Please send good vibes and prayers to Sawyer over the next couple days as he goes through more treatments and be sure to check-out the photo page for awesome birthday pics.
