Day 116 – 119

Thursday Dec 13th morning, I woke up after good night sleep in my bed. I was also excited because I could attend the classes via robot. It was so much fun to be able to interact with my classmates and do a group activity, group discussions and be able to participate in the class quizzes. I got my home instructions for social studies and literacy and next day for math and science which was good. I realized that I am almost upto date in all my subjects. Hurray!! But I still have to work on the assignments and prepare for my tests. That would keep me busy.

These days, the biggest challenge I have is to eat. I do not have any appetite and it is so hard to think what to eat. My mom and grandma are always busy making things for me hoping that I will eat but I take few bites and then I am done. It makes me sad and really frustrated. I want to eat so that I can gain some weight that I lost in last 2 weeks. I lost almost 3 pounds which is not good. I do not want the nasal feeding tube. It is the most frustrating part of the whole treatment.

It’s a big day tomorrow. If my counts are good then I will start my Third phase of chemo. Also I have to undergo my bone marrow aspiration to check the MRD. I know my parents are very worried about it because it was slightly positive last time. I hope God will help me this time and give me the good results so that I can be cured fast and have a normal life!

    I’m so happy to hear that you’re able to participate with your class via the robot. Colin said he and your classmates love having you part of their studies.

    We’re praying for good results with your medical tests and numbers.

    That was so great that you got to drop the puck for the Hillsborough High School hockey Team. I can’t wait for the day when you and Colin are teammates on the high school team.

    In one of your earlier blogs you said you felt bad about not being able to help all the people that are providing support to you. Please know that your blogs provide such inspiration to so many people.

    You are one of the most courageous, tough, and inspirational people I know. You provide so much motivation to so many people. Many people think that their lives are tough and there are many obstacles in their way that might prevent them from achieving their goals.

    Then they see what you are going through and how hard you are fighting and it inspires them to do better.

    There is no doubt you will beat this disease. We are here for you every step of the way until you are declared Leukemia free. We continue to pray for you daily.

    Stay strong!

    Coach John
