Mr. sal has been a busy bee these past days. We finally got him back in pt, ot and speech therapy.
He even helped paint some of our cabinets at home.
We can’t wait for him to get back to being strong and continue getting strong and hopefully getting him to walk and be more active.
Being silly 😜 with my son movie time I love this boy always puts a smile on my face
[04/13/19] Sals bucket list wishes
Sal is enjoying some cold ice cream on this hot day at RBV's Downtown Freeze . I had a delicious chicken panini. 👍👍
Our sal wasn’t feeling too good today.
He was constantly throwing up and nauseous. I hate to see him have these kind of days, some days are good, some not too good.
I felt so overwhelmed to see him like that, I couldn’t do anything to make him feel better. I called his doctor and asked for her to prescribe him aravan on top of Zofran, but the pharmacy didn’t have any.
I was desperate to find something to help him out , I reached out to my dear friend Jennifer's Doterra Fun and Facts and asked her about the essential oils, I had read to try lemon for Sal’s nausea. She gave me a small sample of lemongrass and I put some on Sal’s tongue. At first he complained because it burned a bit, it had like small burning sensation after it, he drank some sprite and continued gagging for a while. After like 30 minutes, Sal changed, he was talking, saying jokes and wanted to play with a new toy Kristie Hastings Gonzalez got him. Thank you for visiting him.
He was able to hold some Pedialyte and stop being nauseous. I am glad and amazed that this oil helped him a bit. I am ready to try a different one.
He had a bath and is currently watching tv, getting his formula, before i go put him to sleep.
I love this!!!
Thank you APPLE !!!
I meant to post these pics last night but I got busy doing other things.
We would like to thank one of sal’s friend on here for buying our family dinner.
We are so thankful for this nice gesture. It’s a simple random act of kindness that makes a big difference.
Thank you so much, we enjoyed it and plus I didn’t have to cook dinner last night. 😀
This kid right here is something else. Selfies on my phone.
Today’s doctor’s appointment went good. We got good news so far , not a definite answer but we will take the good news for now. The doctor saw that there the mri showed some brightness which could mean a side effect from the radiation, chemotherapy or could be dead cells, we won’t know for sure yet. The doctor really believes that the treatment did its job. So no more chemo, no more treatment, no more hospital stays.
Sal will have another MRI IN 3 months and hopefully we will be given a definite answer by then. So for right now i will keep praying for good news. thank you all for the prayers, I believe miracles can happen and I will just leave it in gods hands.
Please keep us in your prayers as we travel back to Houston today for Sal’s MRI and doctor’s appointment.
Prayers for good results and good news.
Getting discharged from what we pray is our last admission before going home.
Monday we have a follow up with BMT and we are hoping to hear good news as to when we get to go home home.
The anticipation of when we will see the oncologist and what the MRI results are keeping me up at night, my whole day is full of anxiety. My stomach and my chest feel like I have a knot that can’t let me breathe.
Hoping to be back home soon with our family
Officially done with all type of chemo. Today he got his very very last dose of vincristine.
Unfortunately he ended up getting cellulitis again in his belly and had to get admitted. This god willing will be his last admission before meeting with the doctors and getting a timeline of when we go home . Now to get him treated and better.
INTERNATIONAL CHILDHOOD CANCER DAY 2019
Raising awareness for our children
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
To our family, friends and sal’s sisters
We hope everyone has a great valentine’s, we are in the hospital for this last admission but we are doing good. He is passing out goody bags to all the nurses and doctors and his special valentine Bailey.
Today is sal’s official last chemo!!!!
Tomorrow he will have his last bone marrow transplant (4/4) and we will just have to see what’s next and when are we able to go home.
We can’t wait to be home.
So excited to show off another awesome thing that happened to us.
My sal was part of Apple homecare 2019 calendar!!!
I loved this calendar last year when they gave us one. Right away we were asked to submit a picture of sal and they said they would be picking kids for this years. Well I got delivered these and I wasn’t told sal was on it until I started looking at it.
Love our sal!!
My baby is already back in the procedure room.
I am praying for everything to come out good while the procedure is been done and for good results.
I feel very nervous and anxious but I have faith everything will be okay, my son is a strong little one.
My handsome boy is asleep. Today we had a long day of testing. Tomorrow he has another appointment and Thursday an mri. And Sunday he gets admitted for his last chemo treatment. My nerves are getting the best of me. This is what the first and most important MRI since sal started his treatment. I literally pray every night to god for this treatment to work and bring my son’s health back.
We are almost at the end of his treatment but it just feels like the closer we are to finishing up, the more nervous and anxious I get. Sal keeps asking when we are going home, home. Reality is, we are anxiously waiting for good results and being able to be home. The loneliness, anxiety, the heart racing, the in your feelings days and nights sometimes are too much to handle.
Please keep us in your prayers these next days.
Sal has been in the hospital admitted since last Thursday, he needed up getting cellulitis in his gtube site Once again. He will be getting 10 days of vincomizyn, which won’t be done until February 2nd. So the doctors are deciding whether we have to be here in the hospital or we can do the antibiotics thru the iv at home.
Dad came to see us this weekend and brought Sals a surprise that got sent to him.
Thank you to whoever sent this, thank you so much for thinking about sal. He is a big space fanatic.
Thank you all for keeping us in your prayers and for your kind words always.
BMT checkup day.
Sal is doing good, his platelets dropped down a lot so they decided to give him some. He is finally gaining weight to the point where the doctor’s decreased his milk formula feedings.
I keep seeing on Facebook about all these kids who are going thru treatment or barely got diagnosed, and my chest starts to get tighter. And sometimes I see the rude comments when they ask for help, or when their day is so bad that they feel the need to vent. Sometimes people are so cruel towards them. I don’t and probably will never understand why these poor children have to go thru so much, why do they have to endure so much at their short ages, why does their childhood sometimes get stolen because of treatments.
Right now, since Sal’s cells are dropping, he is in isolation. He is not allowed to be outside , he is not allowed to be out in crowded places. If his sisters can come visit but they are sick, they are not allowed to be around him. His immune system is so low that he can catch anything so quick. If we come to the doctor, he has to wear a mask for precautions. If the day is pretty and he wants to go for a walk, i have to tell him no.
For most of the time, we are secluded in our apartment with no one but the nurse, if we happen to have one that day. We spend our days working on puzzles, playing with toys, reading, coloring. This is not fun for my son or any other child.
So please , next time you hear about a child getting diagnosed or know of a family going thru it, be kind, if you can , offer them your support. Just be there for them.
