Day +2 has been good

Good Evening,

Xander had a so-so day yesterday, Wednesday. He had multiple episodes of throwing up and felt yucky most of the day. He did let the Docs know that he is a "son of a son of a son of a sailor, so he throws up like a man and handles it fine." This made us crack up and the docs too. What a funny kid!

Today, Thursday has been completely different - he has eaten very well and is in great spirits.

We had an exciting evening in the hospital with the tornado warning. We happened to be playing air hockey when the warning was announced, so we got to stay in that room while all of the other patients were wheeled into the hallways. The warning lasted almost an hour and a half, so we really lucked out!

Hoping for a quiet evening tonight while we wait ever so patiently for the chemo to finish it's job (hair hasn't fallen out yet).... it will be a couple more days until the cells exposed to the chemo have finished their existence in his body.

Your prayers are helping so much.

Peace and Thank you to all that are sending us energy.


The daffodils are from Xander's 4th Birthday blooming in our garden.... and this is him today.


  1. Thanks for the update - so glad to hear he had a better day today. We are sending good thoughts your way.

  2. We're glad you were stuck in the air hockey room. Guess where we were a single stall bathroom at Young People's Theater! There were six of us and we brought in chairs so no one had to sit on the floor...or the toilet!

    Lots of love to you all,

    Jasmine and Margo

  3. Dear Aaron and Emilie:

    Thank-you for keeping this blog, which I read almost daily. I am glad Xander is doing well. I understand that the next few weeks will be especially stressful, but I am sanguine that all will go well.
