Ben got his last med for his chemo cycle yesterday afternoon and he had some reaction to it. He pulled through ok and after some blood work they decided to do a platelet transfusion. He reacted fine to that and had a pretty uneventful night. Some night sweats, but not like the last couple nights. Today should be a quiet day, no testing other than blood, maybe a transfusion but he can go outside for a bit and he is going to do some walking around the pod and get a shower.

Tomorrow morning he has a PET scan at 7 am so with any luck by noon we should be headed home! We are both ready to be home in our own bed and able to get a good night's sleep.


  1. I'm sorry there were some complications, but glad he sounds like he is feeling a little better. I hope you are snug at home and you can both relax and sleep and feel a little better. - Tkeys

  2. Hope he is holding up ok and you guys are able to get home tomorrow.


  3. Praying like crazy for you guys!! I hope you all are hanging in there...Hope you make it home tomorrow!!!

  4. if there is anything Jenn and I can do to help please do not hesitate to call. We are just down the road. I hope you two have a great day and ben starts felling better real soon!!

    Kevin, Jenn and family

  5. Praying everything goes smoothly and he is able to go home soon! I'm certain he is missing his bed! KUP girlie! Love ya and thinking of yall!


We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
