The Story

When we took Henry to the pediatrician on Thursday morning 5/4/17, we never imagined we'd be moving him into a room on the Oncology floor 48 hours later. His CT scans show what appears to be a large cancerous tumor near his liver, above his kidney. The doctors have told us it is stage four neuroblastoma. We will have to pursue aggressive treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants, and radiation, as his condition is advanced and has already moved to other areas in his body, including in his bone marrow.

Please continue to pray for our boy, us, and our other children as we process and move forward into this thoroughly unexpected journey. We are leaning on your prayers as we are understandably overwhelmed.

God gave us 2 Thessalonians 3:16 yesterday on a t-shirt that was given to Hank: "Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you."

Henry is back in his room and there were no problems! His original port (which he's had since last May) is pictured below. His broviac line is also out. He now has a PICC line in his right arm for access (for future meds, blood work, etc). He is still contagious re: flu, but he is fever free and full of energy. Thank you for praying for us this morning!#HelpHankTANKCancer

Please pray for Henry and our family. He has to be readmitted today and probably have his lines replaced. Dawnand I are feeling stressed, worn out, and confused. We will update y'all with more info later. Thanks you!

Update: Surgery is scheduled for Wednesday morning around 11. He'll be getting his broviac line removed, and a different line put in. Additionally, Henry tested positive for flu. 
Radiation is on hold until this sorts out. 
Thank you for your love, prayers, support, and all the ways y'all #HelpHankTANKCancer. We love you!

Henry and I are hanging out in the clinic for a check-up. He is eating his current favorite snack (Garden Salsa Sun Chips) and watching Ninjago on his Kindle. Radiation will begin sometime this week, but we have not gotten final word when this will start.
Thanks for all your love, prayer, and support.

oh and.... WAY TO GO EAGLES!!!!
