Though we are in the hospital for a chemotherapy treatment, Owen has had a few days of awesome health over the last weekend. Before that, he endured at least 6-8 weeks of discomfort and various problems. I thought we would never make it out of that slump, but it was actually quite a miraculous recovery which allowed him a weekend plus a couple of days of FUN!
He went to a BYU basketball game, visited a fire station, and played at grandmas house. He even had enough interest in building a Lego set to finished it completely. He had not even felt well enough to do that for at least 4 weeks. The most monumental improvement was eating by mouth. He finally asked for food and he asked for lots of kinds of food. It started with flavored Vitamin Water and from there his menu widened. Hallelujah for food! Hopefully he'll start gaining weight again and if we are lucky his chemo won't effect his eating too much.
Excitement of November this year will include a fun evening event coming up on the 19th. The Helping Harvest for Owen Fundraiser which has been organized by family and friends is near. I have tried to express our gratitude for the incredible generosity and hard work that has gone into making this event great. I feel like I will never be able to express adequately how humbling it is to have my family and Owen be the recipients of so many good and thoughtful people.
