Andrew was diagnosed with Erythroid (M6) Acute Myeloid Leukemia on November 4th, 2010 when he was almost 5 months old. Andrew is currently in remission from his cancer, after finishing his 5 rounds of chemotherapy. He is a healthy, happy toddler.

Progress...

Most of Andrew's counts are slowly increasing and so there is a chance that we may be able to go home this week. Some people were wondering how his weight has been, well so far he has been gaining weight just like he would if he were healthy. Andrew definitely has times when he is not as hungry, but then his metabolism during that time is a bit lower and so he doesn't burn calories as fast. Developmentally Andrew is now able to go from sitting to crawling and back to sitting. He is learning how to crawl on his hand and knees as well as climb things like chairs and his parents in order to stand up. Ohhh and his new favorite sound to say is "da"

Here is a little clip from about a week ago which I think would cheer up any day
