Last day of freedom

Today was probably Jackson's last day of freedom for a while. His ANC (or neutrophil count) is on it's way down and once it drops below 500 they don't let him out of his room anymore.

We took advantage of the freedom today and Jackson rode the bike around the hospital. Man he can ride fast!

We also ran into Jacksons little friend Jessica on our bike ride. She is one of my heroes for sure. She has been through so much in her short 5 years. We met Jessica and her mom during our first stay at the hospital and seeing them again tonight was a wonderful surprise. Jessica has been battling kidney cancer for a while she has been on a tough road but she is almost done with her treatments. I already love her mom, Chandra- what an amazing woman.

**On a side note-
Today is also mine and Brian's wedding anniversary. I fall more in love with him everyday. Thanks to Becky and Jill for taking care of our babies so that we could go out to dinner tonight- you guys are the best!!


  1. I love the picture in my mind of Jack racing down the hallways and you racing behind trying to catch up. Love you!

  2. Jackson, Thank you so much for coming over to meet Jacob today. What a strong boy you are! My silly Jacob stayed in bed most of the day today, but he had a big adventure in the operating room so I'm glad he got to rest before that. He did great and he's feeling good now! We are going home tomorrow so we will miss you for a little while, but we are coming back in a couple of weeks so we will say hi if you are still here.


Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
