Sigh

The cancer has come back, which, this soon after transplant, is a Very Bad Thing. But we are having good days with our boy, and pursuing a treatment that we hope will save the day.

Basically, it's like they say over at XKCD:

"Man. Fuck cancer."

Much love to you guys, but fuck cancer.

So sorry to hear this. I'll hope for the best and prayers. Wish I knew of something better to help.

Your program for Liam that you mentioned elsewhere just sounds great.

Maybe it could be "Liam's three Ls" - Love Someone, Learn Something, and Lend a Hand (make something...)

Maybe someday Congress will figure this one out but not soon I think...

Thanks, guys.

Matthew,

Probably you already know about this, but I saw this about leukemia today in the news ... 'Huge' results raise hope for cancer breakthrough

@Crystal:

I had already read about it, but it means a lot that you noticed and sent it to me. Thanks. =)

Hey Matthew, just wondering how your son is doing.

Matthew said...

He is responding well to treatment, so the docs think we have a shot. We'll probably be doing a second transplant within a month.

Thanks for asking. =)
