Back from another treatment

Hunter gets accessed here in town the ladies are very good to him.

At Primary Children's

He likes to take us for a ride.

Hunter had to fast before his lumbar puncture. So he gets a cup cake for fasting.

Hunter wishing

Back to Primary Children's for another treatment. I was so very nervous because Hunter turned three. This means the chemo they put in his spine goes up because this dose is measured by age. I keep him in the exact same clothes every time in clinic because his chemo dose is measured by height,weight. I new it was going to go up, but to our surprise all of his doses went up. He has grown 7 centimeters in a month and has gained a pound in three months. Dr. Lemmons was surprised that he reweigh him to make sure. So this means when they do his lumbar puncture they but in 2 mls more of chemo in his spine and the vincristine they put through his port goes up by height and weight. Last but surely not the least his oral chemo at home he takes every day has gone up to a pill and a haft every day and on Thursday it is seven and a half pills. Now the super fun part is his steroids go up too, YEAH !!!!!! So now after Hunter's treatment is over our boy's go outside to make a wish in the fountains. Now that it is winter Triston and Daddy has to say out in the car so Hunter is the wisher today.The boy's get to throw the money in the fountain and Daddy & Mommy gets to make the wish. Our wish is for a cure for Leukemia. They can't wait to play in the snow and throw snow ball's so they did outside the Hospital. We have been going to Baskin Robbins after for ice cream but this time was different instead of ice cream we went to Make a Wish. Hunter and Triston just wanted to play outside in the snow when we got there. We had to coach them in and when we did we went up stair's to play a game. We had the boy's attention for about 2 minuets then they wanted to run around and play. So as we tried to play the game we got to write down a wish for Hunter. This is very Emotional for me,I cried through most of the game when we had to write things down for Hunter. So now it is time for Hunter to make his wish and take it to the wizard to see if it will be granted. The ladies helped him with his wish they picked Disney World. But we have to make two wishes to see witch one the wizard will grant him. His other wish was a pirate ship play house. They had told us about another little boy who wished for that. Hunter was given a key to open the door but it was a little hard for him to open so Triston helped. As we walk in there was a water fall in the middle and lights all a round the room. Hunter went straight for the water fall. He would but his hand's in it and get his jacket wet then flip them up and down so we all got a little wet. Triston listen better to the ladies so Hunter could play in the water. Thank you Triston for helping your brother. As we stood in the room we read all of our wishes to Hunter.I will tell you our wishes. Daddy said,"Beat the cancer and have a long happy life." I wrote,"To be happy forever and then some."And to help find a cure for someone else." When the wizard grants his wish we will let you all know. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. Love, The Laub's
