August Update

The past few weeks have been relatively quiet without much to report. Noah’s treatment in the hospital in late July went relatively smooth but that particular chemo really had some long lasting effects on him and his blood counts. He was scheduled to start the next part of his treatment about 1-2 weeks after but it kept getting delayed due to his counts being off. After a few more weeks of rest and a few blood transfusions Noah is back on track, for the most part.

The week before last he started another regiment of steroids just for one week (the roid rage is always fun!) and this past week he had a spinal tap which came back clear plus some methotrexate. For the next few weeks he is getting a low-dose injection of methotrexate every Monday and then he is taking another chemo drug by pill every day for 3 weeks. We are one week in and so far so good. Will report on how things are looking in a few weeks.

And as you might expect, Noah is keeping a big smile on through it all! We are lucky to have such a happy kid who doesn’t seem to be phased by anything 🙂 Some pictures and video coming soon!
