A glimpse into our lives as a family with micro-preemies. Our twins boys (Lovingly referred to as our Miracle Men) were born almost 16 weeks early.

Our journey continues when our son Max was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3. This is his story....

May 7

We are still in the hospital but HOPE to go home today! Max started his second round of chemo late Friday night and Saturday. So far he is doing great!!! He is also off oxygen for the first time in in 7 weeks.
When we get home he will be on his numerous meds and we will also need to give him his nupagin shots (90% sure I spelled that wrong). The shots help his bone marrow make white blood cells. They tend to be what makes Max the most uncomfortable.  They targets the marrow they make all his bones extremely achy. It is hard for Max to describe when and where he doesn't feel good. Thankfully we have a couple different options to make him as comfortable as possible.
Gotta go. Docs are rounding.
