After 15 months of Logan being in Remission he has finally started to gain weight. He has struggled with his appetite but it's through the roof now! He has gained 7 pounds since he had a nasty virus three weeks ago. That led him inpatient at Barbara Bush Children's Hospital. His blood levels are also bouncing back and almost to where a normal 7 year olds would be. Logan is Thriving now and has continually daily chemo!

Well, now Logan is into the next phase of outpatient chemo. This is not supposed to be anywhere near as intrusive as the last batch was. Rumors are this could go al song as 6 months but we won’t know more till his oncologists returns from a conference. MPBN ran a 3 night series on this type of juvenile Lymphoblastic Lymphoma a few weeks back. According to that series, the average life expectancy as recently as the early 1990’s was 3 months. Now it has a 95% cure rate…Please keep supporting cancer research and thank you for all your support with Logan.
