bad blogging

As Zach recovered from Rhabdomyosarcoma and "normal" life came flying back in I left this blog by the wayside. I never ment to, life just happened.

Zach has now been off-treatment for 1 year. He has many lingering side effects of cancer. The big 3 being constipation, incontentance with pee and poop and neuropathy from the waist down. We now not only see an Oncologist, we also have a gastro dr, a urologist, and a dermatologist!

I would never change the last 2 year of our families lives for what we have learned. Cancer made us all stronger. If you would like to learn more about our struggle we update Zach's caringbridge monthly and that link is above.

I feel your pain! My son just finished his last chemo. We are waiting to do a P.E.T. scan to see if the tumor is dead. He just turned 20 the day of your post. I understand the waiting game and trusting in God to help you through this.
I understand your fear and frustration with the whole rhabdo game. Not liking it either...but we endure don't we.
God bless you on your journey and may your Zach be blessed with the patience and perseverence it takes to get through this!
