HELLO TEAM ACTION JACKSON!!!
Here is an update from Kelli....Thanks & Much Love
Fight, Fight, Fight!!!
Thank you everyone for your continued support. I have not been very good about providing updates, but please know that Greg and I couldn’t be more appreciative of ALL of the love that continues to be poured our way. We thank you for checking in on us, making us laugh, leaving wine at our door step, cooking meals, cleaning our house, etc…the list goes on and on. This week was especially hard and you all have helped to get us through.
Last weekend we had a MONSTER TRUCK style fundraiser. Several neighborhood families, friends, and co-workers (past and present) worked, donated, and $hopped the second JUNK FOR JACK yard sale. It was super fun and raised a bunch of cash for Action Jackson!!! Honorable mention to Christine Horn who wore the apron and was our head cashier for the entire event! Thanks girl! XOXO
This week was a struggle as Jack’s chemo treatment was once again put on hold. We were so certain that his ANC (Absolute Neutrophil Count) would be high enough (>300) because it was SO high last Monday (19,000). It was 195 so we will try again this Monday (the 6th). On Monday he was able to get a blood transfusion which made A WORLD of difference. He felt SO MUCH better. We are still learning and realizing what a roller coaster this process really is. Last weekend I was so sad when I was holding Jack and realized his eye lashes were falling out…..thought we were gonna get to keep those;) BUT today I realized we are 1/3 of the way through treatments!!! 1/3 of the way!!! Feels like a pretty big accomplishmentJ
So thanks again everyone…we want to be battin’ more than 300 on Monday and I will be sure to let everyone know as soon as possible.
