Cameron's Journey ๐ŸŽ—๏ธ

My son's journey with leukemia

Month: July 2019

Transplant is over!

It took longer than anticipated due to high blood pressure and some rashes that formed, but everything went well and Cameron is doing great!

Transplant has started

It will take 5 hours to complete.

Radiation is over, bone marrow transplant set for tomorrow at noon

Today at 6pm was the last and 8th dose of radiation. Other than some nausea and itching Cameron took it really really well. Much better than I anticipated.

So tomorrow is the big day! Cameron will receive his new bone marrow. More to come tomorrow, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers tonight.

Final chemo is over radiation starts tomorrow

Cameron had his last dose of chemo today.

Tomorrow at 7 am he will be transported to UC for radiation. He will do this 2 times a day for 4 days. In the process the radiation will kill his body’s ability to produce blood permanently. I really, really dont like this part.

We’re in the hospital and a week away from transplant

We made it to Childrens this morning, and are settling in for the next few months. Cameron has a big week ahead and we’re thankful to have such a great hospital nearby.

Here’s how the schedule looks as of now:

Cameron was admitted Friday morning.

Friday and Saturday he will receive his chemo.

Sunday through Wednesday he will be getting radiation. This is twice a day for a total of 8 treatments.

Transplant will be taking place either Thursday or Friday. We probably wonโ€™t know an exact transplant time until it gets closer.

Cameron still has a bit of a rough road ahead. His little body will be going through a lot just with the prep for transplant alone. One of those being dropping his immune system to almost nothing.

Going forward, they will slowly raise his immune system over the following months.

We canโ€™t thank you all enough for your prayers and support. We’ll keep everyone posted as I can as things progress with him.

Cameron is in remission!

More to come later this evening. But for now, Cameron is in remission and we will begin the transplant process.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!
