The road to recovery  31 January 2019

First off I would like to apologize for the lack of updates, so Jacob had his bone marrow transplant, it went reasonably well not with out a few infections, nausea, mental battles fluid retention,weight loss, NG tube (feeding tube) issues, a little internal bleeding, and graft verse host disease of the skin, believe it or not this is pretty smooth considering some of the other things that could of happen.

once Jacob was well enough and his body was tolerating all the medication we were sent to ronald mcdonald house for a few months, with check ups a couple of times a week at starship.

When Jacobs graft verse host eased a bit we where sent home, and every second week back at Auckland.

At this present day, Jacob has a full head of hair, has gained a lot of weight, is happy and loving home and being with his dogs and family he is on no medication apart from steroid creams, and last week we got the news that there is NO detectable cancer cells, SO OUR NEW JOURNEY BEGINS.

Jacob is excited to start transitioning back to college, we still have check up appointments each month, and a long road of recovery as Jacob had to have so many chemo treatments and radiation that there is delayed side effects due to this, but he has totally got this, He has punched this cancer in the face like a boss. just want to take his time to say thank you to all of the support, love, prayers that everyone has given to our family.

lots of love from myself my kids and the amazing superhero Jacob
