It's hard to keep a good secret hidden... Well, it's true! Blake came home today... We got the news yesterday afternoon and didn't want to jump the gun and say anything until it was certain. But, he's home right now, and plans on being here until he has to return Monday for round 2 of his Chemo. He'...

Blake is doing VERY well! He is almost feeling like his old self and he's eating pretty good. I got to toss the football with him in the hall today. Even kicked a ball around a bit. (Physical therapy) I'm a lucky dog for having the chance to do this with him! He said he was pretty happy it was me al...

Well, here we go... Now that Blake is taking his potassium pills regularly and without fuss, his potassium level has sky rocketed and they are now giving him lasix again so he'll pee it off. Also, his white count is over 1100 now! Still nothing further has come back on the bone marrow... More to com...

Blake had a great weekend. He is handling things quite better now. He is walking more and more each day, and even asks when he can get up and walk around.

His preliminary bone marrow test showed it is still empty but we are awaiting more conclusive results.

More to come when there is more to come.

Blake is doing really well right now... He's going under for a bone marrow test today to see where it stands. Once they can get some of his marrow, they can test to see where we go on the next round of Chemo... He is in great spirits now and it looks like he's ready for the fight! His attitude is st...

Spent last night and today with Blake. It is truly awesome seeing him laugh and smile. He is in great spirits most of the time. Last night, he ate half a hotdog, half of a large french fries container, a bite of an Arby's Roast Beef sandwich, and drank a Dr. Pepper and some Gatoraid... And kept it d...

Blake has been put back into PICU due to his low potassium level. They have to keep him on a heart monitor, and they only have one they can monitor in the PICU. On a good note, his platelets are over 200,000 so his blood is clotting like normal now... They are doing a CT Scan on his stomach tonight ...

Blake is sleeping, after a night of getting sick, all night. The tube through his stomach did no good. They are now "thinking" about contacting a GI specialist to check into his problem of not keeping anything down. Tammy has allowed the doctors there to "Do their thing" until to...

Blake went for a little walk today... He actually walked himself (with Physical Therapy's Help) down the short stretch of hallway and back. He continues to get sick to his stomach, but as they ween him off the Methadone (and Adavan) as well as the Anti-fungal drug and Antibiotics, he should get more...

Blake had a busy day today. Although I have no update for most of the day, when Tammy came in, they were wheeling him around the floor for his first trip out of bed in over 3 weeks... He said he hated it... I'm sure he won't hate it once he's feeling better in a few weeks. He's sleeping now, but I'm...
