Tough News

It's been a tough couple of days. They found abnormal cells in Liam's spinal fluid, which makes him high risk instead of average risk, like they originally thought (hoped). They couldn't do this check until 3 weeks after the surgery. As a result, the plans have changed and we start chemo tomorrow. Liam will have 3 months of conventional chemo plus chemo in his spinal fluid, then 3 months of high dose chemo. (6 months total). We did the swallow test, and Liam was able to swallow food and liquid pretty well. He is able to eat now, although will keep the feeding tube through chemo. But now that he's used the feeding tube, he doesn't want to eat! Go figure. Though it is hard to celebrate this given the other news.
