We had a 5 generation picture taken while Drew is home, we had taken one when Molly was a baby but had not taken any since Drew was born. My grandmother is 96 years old.

Perhaps a little too "pollyannish" for some, but indeed "attitude is everything" and positivity is so much better for us than negativity sooooooo see the beauty in today and enjoy!!!

This is a part from Heidi's Caring Bridge post:



The surgeon just came out. We've been waiting for almost 5 hours, and got to hear the best, shortest sentence ever, "It's out!". Praise God!! He was able to remove the bulk of the tumor, and 90% of it came back as dead tissue. Which is wonderful news! He was able to "peel" it back as he had hoped and didn't have to take any organs or parts of organs. No major arteries were disturbed either. He described it like crab grass--we got the bulk of it out. There always would be some little seedlings left that we'll have to treat, but the majority is gone. The rest will be treated, as we had already planed, with the procedure where he'll receive the bone marrow transplant and also radiation. Any pieces the surgeon didn't removed were biopsied and showed to be dead cancer. He said it went as well as he could have expected.

Today was the CT scan, and the meeting with the Oncology team and Surgery team to discuss the operation tomorrow. We learned that the tumor is now roughly in between the size of a golf ball and baseball--one measurement down from 13 cm across initially to 3cm!! But it is still wrapped around major things--blood vessels and his kidney in particular. So they will have to "open him up" to remove it, and even then will have to wait and see how it looks. I guess if the cancerous tumor is dead and shriveling up, pulling away from things, the surgeon can kind of peel it back and remove it fairly easily. If it is still embedded in structures/organs he'll have to remove what he can and then we'll still have to deal with what's left. He said on a scale of 1-10, one being a root canal and 10 being a liver transplant (which is ironic he picked that "10", since as some of you know, my sister had a liver transplant), this is an 8.5. It should take 3-5 hours, and begin in the morning, sometime between 9 and 10 they hope. Drew was admitted tonight in order to receive a blood transfusion before the operation. So, I humbly ask all my faithful family and friends to pray for tomorrow. Pray that the tumor is in the best possible state to be removed, and all his organs can be saved (they are particularly worried that he may lose part of or all of his left kidney).

Tomorrow (May 10th) They will be doing the CT scan on Drew to decide if they can now remove the tumor in Drew's abdomen or if they will have to wait. Praying that they will be able to do the surgery now rather than later, the surgery is scheduled for Wed May 11th if everything is a go tomorrow. They have said that it is easier to cancel the surgery than to try to get it scheduled and of course if it is a go they want to do it as soon as possible

The day finally arrived! Drew's numbers were where they were suppose to be! They started the stem cell harvest this morning around 9 AM and finished it about 1:30 PM. They came in about 2 hours later to tell them it had been a success They need 8 million stem cells, and Drew gave them 19 million!!! They will be taking the catheter out of his neck today, giving him platelets and planning on sending him home yet tonight. If all goes well at home he will have to go back on Thursday for a blood draw and them Friday to have the new drain line put in. The first picture is of him during the harvest and the second one is of him after the stem cell harvest.

Drew did get released from the hospital today after two negative cultures. It will be nice that they will get to spend Easter at home as a family. They have now postponed the stem cell harvest until after round 4 of chemo. Here is Molly and Drew enjoying some home time today.

What a strong little guy he is to go through all of this! And what a strong family around him to support and love him during this difficult time.

Drew got to go home last Monday after round 3 of Chemo, by Tuesday afternoon he was not holding down anything so after a call to the doctors at Mayo, they were told to bring him back in for some fluids and anti nausia medication. After two bags of each given through his central line they did get to go home Monday night, He started running a fever yesterday and after taking him to the emergency room it was found that he now does have an infection so he is back at Mayo. They are suppose to start harvesting his stem cells this week, but a lot will depend on the infection.

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

Don't forget



What is Earth Hour: It's an annual global celebration where people switch off their non-essential lights for one hour (your local time 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.) to show they care about the future of our planet.

It's a symbolic and spectacular lights out display with a big message - we want to protect the future of our planet! Since it first began in Sydney Australia in 2007, the number of countries taking part in Earth Hour has grown to an incredible 172 countries and territories - a number that keeps rising every year!

Earth Hour is not about how much energy is saved during the hour. Rather, it's a chance to put the spotlight on the issues facing the planet, and to inspire millions across the world to live more sustainably.

"Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents - it was loaned to you by your children." ~ Indian Proverb

Happy International Women's Day!!!

International Women's Day has been held on 8 March every year since 1913, and has been recognised by the United Nations since 1975.

The UN says it's a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.

The theme of this year's day is "Planet 50-50 by 2030" - aiming to achieve global equality in areas such as education and end all forms of discrimination.

Deb, in order to access the page you have to have the email address and password first.

It's good to hear that Drew is getting the necessary treatments started right away. You are right - small victories are what you should be looking for which will help you get through all this. Praying for good results!!!

For anyone that is interested here is Drew caring Bridge page.


www.caringbridge.org/visit/drewbecke
r/



Here is the most recent update if you do not want to check out the page.


We found out last night that the Cancer is also present in Drew's bone marrow which makes his cancer stage 4. Due to this he will need a lot stronger chemotherapy and it will take longer to cure him. There will be a combination of several things including chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, surgery, and probably radiation. They are going to start chemotherapy this afternoon and we know Drew will be hospitalized for at least the next two weeks. They are very confident that after this first round of chemotherapy the tumor will shrink and he will start to feel relief. They are giving him medicine to hopefully reduce the side effects on his body but it will probably be a long week for him. We are taking one day at a time and looking forward to small victories as we start treatment less than one week after we found out. Thank you for all your prayers and support!
