Can't believe I forgot this when writing the last update, but Lorin also GRADUATED Jr. High on the 5th of June! It was an emotional moment, watching him walk down to get his certificate when they called his name. A HUGE congrats to him! :-)Share This Update!
It's been a little over a month since the last update and wow! A lot has happened since. While getting ready for his fifth round of chemo, Lorin was told he didn't have to do it because his tumor had shrunk enough for surgery. Yes, surgery to remove the tumor from his liver!! The docs and all our family were so ecstatic! Miracles really do happen! So, Wednesday the 21st of May, Lorin went in for surgery. It was a very long 14 hour surgery. Lorin did great! The docs kept more liver than they thought they would, so, that's amazing! He's been in a lot of pain, so far, but he's being tough. He's definitely a strong young guy! We also just celebrated Lorin's 16th Birthday, June 10th! It was great to be able to have a good time with him and see his smiling face and goofy looks he likes to do. He still is going to be doing chemo, so, more updates will follow. As of now, though, his organs all look great and we are very positive that he will beat this! Keep praying for Lorin, he needs it and we're all so grateful for all of you who are supporting us during this time. Share This Update!
Lorin finished his fourth round of chemo a week and a half ago. He did really well. The docs told us his blood clots are shrinking!! This is fabulous news! We all couldn't be more pleased and we would like to thank you all so very much, for your prayers, thoughts, kindness and donations. They truly don't go unnoticed. :-) Share This Update!
Lorin went through his third course of chemo this last weekend and he did awesome! He's a champ! The doctors gave us good news. His main tumor has shrunk 20%, his organs are functioning well and he gained a little weight! This is amazing and we are all so very pleased. We thank you all for your continued support and prayers. They go a long way. Lorin, too, is very thankful.Share This Update!
Lorin finished his second course of chemotherapy two days ago. He is very weak, but in good spirits. He thinks it's so awesome to see that some people have donated to help him get through this. He's also overjoyed knowing we are all praying for his health to return. Thank you all for your support! Share This Update!
