Two Years In – High Anxiety

Hi all – Over the¬†weekend we passed our two year anniversary of the day Sally first got sick. Although we were formally diagnosed on July 15th, Sally first showed symptoms that brought us to the ER on June 12th of 2013. From that moment on life was never the same for our family, and never […]

Cabana Girl

Hello all – Yes, we know it’s been awhile again since our last update. All was actually pretty quiet up until the last few weeks, so didn’t have much to report on. That all changed three weeks ago when Sally was admitted with what appeared to be an infection on the skin around her central […]

Emerging From Our Cave

Emerging From Our Cave

Hi all – We realize it’s been about 6 weeks since our last update. To be honest, there really hasn’t been anything major to update, which is actually a very good thing. Last week we kicked off Cycle 11 with Sally receiving a spinal tap of Cytarabine chemo and a bone marrow aspirate to check […]

Cancer Dads - The Forgotten Half

Cancer Dads – The Forgotten Half

Hi all – Today Sally turned 2 1/2, a major milestone in her battle against MLL ALL Leukemia. It’s also my 36th birthday and I’d like to think that gives me the carte blanche to write a post about something that has been irking me for some time now. Yesterday on Facebook I saw several […]

Cast Off

Cast Off

Hi all – As you probably surmised from the title, Sally finally got her cast off this morning after having it on for 6 1/2 weeks. An X-ray showed that all 3 of her fractures have been healing nicely. Since the breaks have all occurred from simply standing on her leg, we’re obviously going to […]

Pushing Her

Pushing Her

Hi everybody – Overall, Sally has been doing quite well the last few weeks since our previous update when she broke her leg (again). She’s had a ton of energy, almost too much, to the point where it is difficult for her to settle. We think this is due to her activity being limited with […]

Another Broken Leg

Another Broken Leg

Hi all – On New Year’s Eve, Sally returned to the more intense chemo plan that she was on before the seizures she suffered in October. Our whole family spent the day at the hospital, getting there at the crack of dawn so Sally could undergo her spinal tap of chemo and have a bone […]

Return to Intensive Treatment

Return to Intensive Treatment

Hi all – We’ve been getting a lot of questions about how Sally is doing, so wanted to provide an update. Sally’s cast came off the week before last when we found out that the staff who remove casts can only do so on Thursdays, which meant she would have had it on until the […]

Goal: Enjoy the Holidays

Goal: Enjoy the Holidays

Hi all – Sally has had a good week since we last wrote. She has adjusted really well to having a cast, showing off her tenacity by learning to skooch around our home despite it. She started off being able to move a few feet the first couple days, but by the weekend was going […]

Broken Leg

Broken Leg

Hi all – As you probably surmised from the title, Sally has suffered a broken leg. We were visiting family on Sunday night where Sally managed to climb a small set of stairs for the first time. It was a huge achievement for her and were so proud. While climbing again, she all of a […]
