I'm Back....With news...

I just wanted to post an update for those who who have been following my nephew's journey with Burkitts Lymphoma. I got home from Michigan last night. While I was there they determined the cancer was NOT in his spinal fluid or bone marow and only located in two nodes which is completely atypical for this form of cancer. This is good news and also a little worrysome. The cancer usually responds quickly to treatment but the fact that it isn't behaving like it normally does has us praying it responds like it's suppose to.

My nephew has been doing awesome through all this. He has an awesome attitude and just wants everything done and overwith. He has also been on top of his own treatment asking the doctors questions even I wouldn't have thouht to ask!!

My sister on the other hand is a mess. My nephew even said once that watching his mother was worse than having cancer.

Anyway... he started chemo last night and am waiting to hear how he tolerated it.

Thank you again to everyone who has kept him in their thoughts and prayers!!

Glad there is some light in all of this. Hope he makes a quick recovery and it responds to the chemo.

Seems like the kids always handle it better than the moms... At least my son does when he's in the hospital. I'm so glad to hear he's staying positive and fighting. Sounds like a good guy! Keeping you all in my thoughts! *HUGS*
