A Little Bit About Liam :: Liam is a fun loving boy that loves playing with his siblings.  He was a strong and healthy toddler, we used to joke that he would grow up to be a linebacker because he was so strong.  Early in May 2015, Liam came down with a fever.  We didn’t think much of it; however, a few days later he spontaneously developed a black eye.  Over the next couple days he grew more and more lethargic.  We took him to urgent care when a second black eye appeared on his other eye.  The trip to urgent care led to a trip to Nationwide Children’s ER.  Within hours, our world collapsed as we learned Liam had a rare form of cancer called Neuroblastoma.  We have spent the past several months with near daily trips and stays in the hospital.  He has completed 5 rounds of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant. Through it all, Liam has demonstrated strength and an unwavering joy.  We are hopeful that with the treatment plan over the next seven months that we will beat the odds, and Liam can return to his normal happy childhood.   If you’d like to follow his journey, we post updates to his page:   Facebook.com/liftupliam

A Halloween Update from Lift Up Liam :: Happy Halloween from Liam! We obviously didn’t get to participate this week, but did get to do some trick or treating before we were admitted, thanks to a local church in Sunbury.Liam had a rough week. All week he has been on IV pain meds and nutrition since the mouth sores were so bad he couldn’t swallow. He constantly drooled or spit his saliva out which caused dried cracked skin around his mouth. He slept a lot due to the morphine, and required numerous blood transfusions.

However, the good news is that the worst is behind us now. His ANC was zero all week and we waited patiently for something, anything to let us know that the bone marrow was starting to regenerate. Yesterday, his ANC was 115 and today it is 540!!!! If counts continue to stay above 500, it means the marrow did engraft on Day +11. We posted earlier that the soonest anyone had been discharged was Day +11, however we found out today that was incorrect. Really, the fastest anyone has engrafted is Day +11 (so he is tied for the record for NB kiddos).

He is weaning pain meds and nutrition. Getting back to his ornery self. Finally laughing and talking again. His favorite activity right now is applying chapstick, which he does constantly. Our biggest goal is to get him to eat and drink again. Each day should be better than the day before and hopefully we can leave in about one week.
