Sevi’s Labs are Lookin’ Good!

Hi all, We’ve been silent on the blog for a bit because things have been so hectic. Balancing three kids (one of them a teething infant monster, one of them sick with cancer), jobs, and a new city has been tough. I wanted to share a bit of good news:

Last week, we found out that Sevi’s body is responding to the more aggressive cancer treatment! Her labs show that the cancer is undetectable. This does not mean she is cancer-free or in remission, just that the treatment is working as it was intended. FINALLY!

Otherwise, no changes. She is still on track for chemo for the next 2-3 years. This past week, she has been admitted to the hospital (a scheduled admission) so she can be treated with a very toxic chemotherapy drug. Did you know there are cancer drugs so toxic that people can’t be around others when they are on them? What?! Crazy, huh? She gets admitted for four days, stays here all day and night, and gets this medicine. Then, when it’s out of her system, she can come home (tomorrow).

Patrick and I have been taking shifts going to the hospital. And he is still working! A real father superhero! It’s still pretty hard with all the kids and Rowan teething and not sleeping through the night. It’s a real stressor for us all. Sevi is such a big girl though, she stays by herself at night at the hospital and does just fine. She’s growing up, in a weird, unexpected sort of way.

That’s all for now. Thanks for all the help and support. We continue to want and need your texts/ calls/ letters showing support during this time.

    Thank you Guys for the up date! As hard as it is to read this and learn what you go through daily- It has to be 10 times harder for ya’ll to be the one’s doing it. So proud of Sevi!! She is a Trooper, she is the Official Big Sister! Thanks for keeping us in the loop. I realized I need to check some dates. So proud of Patrick as well, Job, This and Family..he is a Trooper as well.
