Our doctors refer to Sam's leukemia as refractory...and persistent.
It has not gone away. It continues to resist the treatments that have been thrown at it.
But we, and perhaps more importantly our doctors, are equally as persistent.
A new plan is in place. It is different. Very different. And yet, the goal is the same.
We work to get him to a place where we can put the transplant into action.
We don't have all the answers yet.
But we have faith and trust in the medical team that we have in place.
Our journey has many miles remaining...we begin this week.
Hang in there! You Will beat this evil disease! Our love and prayers are with you! Hug Sammy for us and remind him that Superman didn't always have it easy, but he always won.ReplyDelete
And we will be persistant in our prayers and wishes. Sam is strong and will get through this.ReplyDelete
Sending love. Sam is in our prayers as always.ReplyDelete
Once again, I remind you of my niece. A 7 year odyssey filled with set backs & good news & frustration, joy & tears, anger & understanding. She got to her transplant and now, years later, she is beautiful & strong & faithful & serving in Rwanda helping with nutritional needs. I wish for you LESS than a 7 year odyssey, yet with an outcome just as beautiful & glorious.ReplyDelete
And, btw, you don't call him SUPERman for nothing.
Sending you strength and flexibility and persistence to meet the challenges ahead. Most of all, and as always, I send you xoxo from NYC!ReplyDelete

Wishing Superman Sam a journey of hope, faith, and healing. My daughter is approaching her 7th year in remission from ALL and we often could never see the light of hope during her treatment phase. But today she is a healthy girl, and tomorrow when I meet with Congressmen on Capitol Hill w the LLS to advocate for patient rights and access to therapies, I will keep Sam and my daughter close in my heart. God bless you! -- the Sierens family, GlencoeReplyDelete
Love and hugs to all of you! We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.ReplyDelete
Sending more and more thoughts, hugs and prayers. Sam is one tough piece of cookie dough, and so are you, even when it gets so scary and difficult....thinking of you always.ReplyDelete
We say the Shema each night, and say an extra few words of healing for Sam. Strength and prayers!ReplyDelete
