You are about to see some of the most advanced medicine at work and return to you the little man you care so much for. The options for treatment are very successful.
They do not use the word cure very often, but in some cases in childhood leukemia it is very possible. The most important thing is to be positive, beat it, get on the other side of treatment, then live that full life.

Update 4/1/24
We have been home a week today and wanted to give everyone a quick update.

The initial shock of the diagnoses has worn off. We are happy to be out of the hospital and are enjoying the comforts of home.

Charlie is a trooper! He is on Day 11 of his chemo treatments. He is noticeably weak and tired but he is in good spirits (most of the time!) It’s great to see him playing and hanging out with his big sister again.

Not going to lie, Charlie has been through the wringer the past few weeks and it’s been extremely difficult for us as parents. I have relayed all the msg’s from here to my family, all your kind words have meant a lot to us. We are really lucky to have a big support network of friends/family to lean on. Thank you!

One of the worst things to deal with can be feelings of helplessness. Most people can endure quite a bit, but when it’s your kid and there’s nothing you can do to really help, it can become debilitating. Hope that this takes care of it and Charlie never has to go through this again, but just in case… cherish and take advantage of all of the easier times that you can. It’s so easy to get distracted by the pressures of life only to find that time you can never get back is gone. I know you are all so happy to be home. Hospitals really are the worst. Hang in there and you all are still in our thoughts and prayers. :heart:
