Reality – before round 5

As I sit here on the eve of Logan’s fifth round of inpatient chemo, also my birthday, I am overcome with conflicting emotions. Part of me is excited to go back to the hospital and finish inpatient chemo once and for all but there is another part of me that just wants...

After Round 4

I have literally sat down at least a dozen times over the past few weeks trying to write a blog post.  I actually have had a few different topics running around in my head that I have been trying to get on paper (computer) but time just gets away from me.  I...

End of Round 3

As I sit here thinking about the past few months, I can’t believe all that our family has been through and has overcome already.  I am so excited that we finally get to go home tomorrow for nine days, it feels so surreal!!!!  I am beyond ecstatic and cried tears of...

Strength

We are coming off a week of absolutely amazing news.   In a matter of seven days Logan underwent two extensive brain surgeries where the doctors were able to resect 95% of his tumor!   This is everything we, and all of you out there, have been praying for (and boy do...

Surgery

I don’t even know where to begin. These past couple of weeks have been another crazy rollercoaster ride. On Tuesday night April 25, around 11pm, Logan stopped tracking (following) and was just in a trance like state. I knew for a few days prior that there was...

End of Round 2

Today was the last day of Round 2.  This round has been very rough on Logan and the rest of us for that matter.   Round 1 was only 75% of the recommended chemo dose (they do that for all babies under 6 months old) and they bumped him up to 100% for Round 2 because he...

End of Round 1

End of Round 1

I have been trying to write this post all week.  I started on Monday when Logan had his last dose of chemo for Round 1.  Then we were informed that we could go home for a few days because his counts came back up quicker than they anticipated.  So, we have just been...

Thank you letter – Logan Strong Fundraiser 3/29/17

To everyone who has taken the time out of their day to be here, to show us love and support, and to help us in this most difficult time…thank you.  It doesn’t seem enough for us just to say “thank you” when so many of you have gone so far above and beyond anything we...

Logan’s Chemotherapy Plan

Logan started chemo on Monday, March 20. They are able to treat his tumor very aggressively due to his age.  Children, especially babies are able to receive a higher dose due to their resiliency.   Unfortunately the tumor is too big for his little head to be removed...

Meet Logan

When Jennifer and Kevin got married in June 2015, they knew the next step in their life was to start a family. They struggled with fertility and sought treatment. They were able to get pregnant after one round of treatment. When they found out it was a boy, they were...
