Stetson is 3 years old. He was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia June 10, 2015. He stayed in the hospital for 7 days & began chemotherapy 3 days after diagnosis & will travel to UNC Chapel Hill for treatment each Friday (2 hour drive one way). His mom has to work for insurance. Dad is main income provider through his construction business. We need help with travel expenses, paying a in home babysitter, medical bills, etc. He can't return to his small daycare or attend preschool due to his lowered immunity. He is a pee wee barrel racer but can't even touch his pony due to possible mold exposure from hay.  We greatly appreciate your contribution.  Once we have paid for Stetson's treatment any remaining donations will go towards research & finding a cure for children's cancer.

Stetson had a good report today. Counts were good. His vincristine was not counts pending. Stetson got his vincristine iv infusion. We will be going to physical therapy for his neuropathy in his legs due to the vincristine. He runs, jumps, climbs, etc but he does at times just fall down when just walking like his legs buckle. We go back in a month for spinal tap. He will continue the oral chemo routine as before. Thank you for all the prayers! He had a good time playing with his Cpal, Natalie. She is super sweet & great with him. Stetson is such a sweetheart too. He got a prize from the prize box & asked if he could get one for his sister. His main focus ALL day was getting back home before Discovery Place Kids closed so he could get a cow he saw in the window the other day.

Everything went well yesterday at the clinic. Stetson made counts & got his spinal tap with methotrexate injection & his infusion of vincristine. Stetson is in the maintenance phase for the next 2 1/2 years. In the spring he will be less restricted on going around people. However, we are still going to be careful around sick people, etc. We are debating on preK in the fall vs the babysitter he stays with now (she has been so good to him). His immune system will still be kept down by the chemo & not at a "normal" level as yours & mine. What happens in maintenance? Steroids (dexamethasone) for 5 days every 4 weeks. That is 3 1/2 pills in the morning & 4 pills at night. He takes one 6MP (mercaptopurine) pill every night & can't have food or milk or citrus to drink for one hour before he takes it & two hours after he takes it. He takes one methotrexate pill on Wednesdays except for the week of his sedation appointments. It is taken the same way as the 6MP. He gets a spinal tap every 12 weeks with methotrexate injection. He gets a vincristine infusion those days as well as every 4 weeks. We go back to clinic every 4 weeks for counts, checkup, & vincristine. Please continue to pray for our little man. He is such a trooper.
