yesterday's update today.

Aaron--

Ok, sorry for the late post but we wanted to try and give the most updated news and things kept changing yesterday.

Sky is still in the hospital, but has had some "relief", in fact the last i had heard, was that he passed a solid movement! Which is great because the x-rays yesterday showed that he still had a solid block in the small intestines.

Ok, so the tumor is pressing on his lower intestines making it very difficult for him too pass any stool, this is a problem we are hoping to solve with the Chemotherapy hopefully shrinking the size of the tumor to release the restriction.

Sky was very tired yesterday, and in quite a bit of pain at sometimes, but i blame the crappy ass hospital he is in. seriously, you would not believe the level of incompetence at this hospital.
Nobody is on the same page, absolutely no one is on the same page.
His spirits are low as far as i could gather so maybe some extra prayers are needed today.
Thanks everyone i will post more when i know.

I'M GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO HAVE SOME RELIEF YESTERDAY, AND HOPEFULLY TODAY BRINGS MORE. I KNOW IT MUST SUCK TO BE STUCK IN THE HOSPITAL, ESPECIALLY SINCE IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. I WILL PRAY EXTRA BIG MUCH TODAY THAT YOU WILL GET TO GO HOME SOON. LOVE YOU!

Hey Sky,

This is the "shits" literally. Glad for the fact that you have had some relief, but sorry for the chaos at the hospital.

I'm sure that the fund raiser will be such that you can get a second opinion/better treatment soon.

The prayer circles that I started continue to grow as people spread the word, then those people spread the word and so on..........

Know that you are loved,

I'm so happy that he got some relief yesterday. Have you guys contacted the cancer center of america? They might be a little more help to Sky. I will keep working on the fund raiser to make sure we get enough to get him to a better place..
We love you Sky and wish that we can take your pain away.

I am so sorry that they are retarded at that hospital. I am glad that you got some relief yesterday, I hope today brings you more relief. And hopefully you get your system flushed and you can go home to that comfy chair. Praying for you and missing you.
Love you,
Lara

We talked to Nicole this morning and are so happy to hear that you're feeling better and the nurses are stepping it up!! You are such a strong person and it shows more and more every day Sky!! I not it's of little consolation but it almost seems as if when it gets to the most unbearable point something good/pleasant pokes its head through as though to encourage you to keep fighting! We know you can do this Skyler! We are all praying for you and will continue to do so!!
Love you!!

Hey Sky,
Glad to hear you have gotten some more relief. Sorry to hear about the doctors in the hospital. I know it's frustrating but just remember that only in the U.S. it's called a practice... everywhere else it's a profession! I have told one of my closest friends about you and he sends his regards. His family has a few cancer patients too so he understands what your family is going through. Keep your chin up and try to smile because there is a lot of people who support you and love you very much. You are in our prayers sky.

Alex, Tami, Ashley, & Austin

I am so sorry that you have to deal with Kaiser. Stay on top of them! I am glad you had some relief! Keep fighting Sky! During grace before dinner Dain always says a prayer for you, and he put you on his prayer list at school. We love you! See you on Sat.

Hey doll,

I just caught up on all your posts here. I've been praying for you and your family and friends and will continue for as long as it takes to beat this thing and then some.

Your experience with the hospital and its staff sounds just like my brother's. It's amazing how incompetent they can be. Trust me, they also have my prayers. May God guide every decision they make and every treatment they give.

I know with your courage and all the love you have surrounding you, there is no need to tell you to keep fighting. God Bless You, baby boy.
