After 136 days, We're Back
Updated: Jul 7
We are back. Back in the city that gave us hope. Back in the city that now fully holds our hearts and taught us the only true things in life that matter. Back still in search of answers and a path forward. We are back in Boston after 136 days of waiting.
Carter began IST (https://www.aamds.org/.../thera.../immunosuppressive-therapy) on November 4, 2021 to fight his Severe Aplastic Anemia diagnosis. Since the completion of his treatment the end of November, we have been in Atlanta going to clinic 1-2x per week for red blood cell (13x) and platelet (28x) transfusions. He is the strongest and most determined 10 year old I have ever seen. Carter is fighting this fight and his smile has never left his face.
We anticipate a full plan forward after this visit and testing.

***A plug for my little man*** Carter has started a YouTube page to keep busy since in-person school and sports have been taken away. He is doing so well with technology and would LOVE more followers. (Mom totally gets that Fortnite isn’t for everyone - just give the boy a follow Please, and a HUGE thank you!)
