When Sawyer started to lose his hair both Jeremy and I kept telling him that we could cut our hair to look like him if he wanted us to. Well about two weeks ago he asked us if we would do it. So last Sunday (3/17) we invited our neighbors over and did just that! He was so excited, and we were so happy to do it for him. I will post some pictures in the photo section.
As for Sawyer’s recent procedure his stem cell collection went very well! The medicine they gave him to release his stem cells caused him to have some aches, especially in his back, but doses of Tylenol helped him to relax and sleep. It brought up his white cell count so high that the chemotherapy may also give him some relief. They analyzed the stem cells they collected from his first day and they needed to collect 2 million per kilo. Sawyer produced 21 million per kilo!! His Drs. were surprised that he was able to produce that many cells, given his age and size. They got all he will need and more from his first day that he only needed to be hooked up for half the day to get some extra cells. If all goes well he will be starting his 3rd cycle of chemo this evening (3/23). We will keep all of you posted with how he does. As of right now he will be going home late Tuesday afternoon/evening.
Thank you all for your continued support and prayers. We appreciate them so much!
Until Next Time!!
Jen, Jeremy, Sawyer, & Calvin
