Clinic Today

Today's clinic visit went well.  Sammy was tired from a late night as we had friends over, but he picked up and became his usual goofy self once we were settled in and he was accessed.  Here is a glimpse of our little morning getting chemo.  It is amazing how this no longer phases Sam...he just treats it like a regular part of his life.  I suspect he'll be very glad once it's over though :)

Eating before Chemo!

Getting accessed

Drawing blood

Happy blood came out on the first try (unusual)

Ready to get the chemo

All done!  


  1. He is a trooper to be sure. So are you!

  2. Hi Katy,
    Not sure if this is the right sight to blog to you. I know you have a couple. LOL. Not sure how you do it all. I always want to sit down and blog and then by the time I get to it, I am tired and just rush through and my true emotions are not there. I am glad everything is going well for you and your family. The kids are resilient and bounce back quicker than their parents. Yes, we will always worry but he seeing Nick so happy makes things easier for us. have you heard of Hole in the Wall yet? I see you are from CT and that is were the place is. Absolutely amazing. I would love to connect sometime and talk to you. My home email is on my website. Take care. Karen Shannon

  3. Geez, he is so brave. I know grown men who freak out over the needle!

    I'll be sending questions for the radio show Wednesday later today or Monday.

    Have a Happy Easter!

  4. Hi Katy
    My son Andy was recently diagnosed with T-Cell ALL. He is 2. Similar to you, my husband has been blogging and came across your blog. I have to tell you that i sat down and read every one of your blogs. THANK YOU. They scare me, comfort me, touched me in many ways, but mostly, i feel a little more prepared for the horrible journey we are about to embark on. I understand no 2 kids protocols are the same but no medical book I have read has provided with the insight your blog has. So again, thank you.

  5. I am so glad this blog has helped others. I really speak from my own experiences and have NO medical background at all, but I do have the one thing the doctors don't have....the privilege of being a mother of a hero with cancer. Anonymous, if you want to get in touch..please feel free email is on my profile page xxxx
