On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

An Amazing Patient!

Seriously, Erin is amazing when it comes to taking her oral meds.
She has come a long way.  6 months ago we had to hold her down and force the meds in her mouth.

We were sooooo thankful the Infectious Disease Team took Erin off the IV Vancomycin.  She is only taking Meropenem through her IV so now we have a window of 7.5 hours when we don't have to hook her up in the night. 

We did Erin's last eye drops this morning.  She did eye drops every 3 hours for 48 hours after she is given ARA-C (Chemotherapy).  I'm looking forward to a long night's sleep!

Our meds for the 5 days that Erin is home.

  3. Shake it off Erin!! OH man!! She really is a trooper! Seeing her take all the medicine brought back many memories of almost a year ago. With all the meds she takes and the timing, it's almost like you have a newborn all over again. But in a little bit of a different way.
    Glad that she's doing well and hope you guys are doing well too.
