NOLAN WAS 22 MONTHS OLD WHEN HE HAD A BIOPSY DONE ON A LYMPH NODE ON HIS NECK. THE APRIL 1ST, SURGERY WENT GREAT AND DR.WAS NOT CONCERNED THAT THIS WAS CANCER. WELL THAT FRIDAY OUR LIFE WAS SHAKEN TO THE CORE..THE PHONE CALL CAME AND OUR PEDIETRICAN SAID TO COME STRAIGHT TO HIS OFFICE ASAP..THAT WAS NOT THE CALL I WANTED TO HEAR FRIDAY MORNING. ” ~MISTY (MOM)
We went to TCH on Saturday 4/4/14 and he admitted. That was the longest and most terrifying hospital stay i have ever had. Every day Nolan had test, surgeries or some kind of lab work being done..on April 10th we had the very long talk with the Dr. And was given Nolan dx. And the plan for Nolan. On April 11th he had his first round of chemo. Nolan has been handeling the phases pretty well. The beggining ones were pretty rough.. but he did good with these last two he just finished..We just started the DI phase..very tense.. and it has hit him pretty hard. He is very weak, tired, irratable, and just hurting. This phase will be over in the mide of oct..then onto the next ones..We have a 2yr treatment plan. Nolan love trains, (thomas and dinosair train, chugginton) also dinosaur, cars, being a ninja, playing super hero dress up and lego duplo. He has an older brother so he play a lot of stuff with him.
