Update #6

4 days ago

On Tuesday Paige went into the clinic to find out what her bone marrow results mean as far as treatment goes. The test results she got are accurate up to .01% and showed NO leukemia cells. She has been enrolled into a clinical trial and her first and most recent bone marrow samples will be sent off to get results to .001% level. This will determine which branch of the study she will take. Those results will come in about 2-3 weeks. She has currently moved out of the induction phase of treatment into consolidation phase which will last 4 weeks and started 10/17. During this phase, she will get chemo via pill once per day and lumbar puncture chemo once per week on Thursday's. Anyone interested in reading more about treatments - https://www.cancer.org/cancer/leukemia-in-children/treating/children-with-all.html

Today Paige had her first real surgery where they placed her port in her chest. This will allow for direct access to her vein. During this procedure they also removed her PICC line and gave her chemo. It was a big day, she is doing well but tired. Thanks for everyone's support! #playforpaige

Update #5

It's been a long 28 days since diagnoses. Most of the family got no sleep these days but happy to report since stopping the steroids Paige has slept all night 2 nights in a row! She is very bubbly and happy. Since she is able to walk now she just walks around the house and giggles because she is so happy to be able to do it again on her own.

This afternoon the doctor called with the results of her bone marrow test from last Thursday, NO LEUKEMIA CELLS LEFT! Paige still has a long road ahead but this is great news. Tomorrow she will get her treatment plan going forward. Thank you for all your support, prayers and donations, it's working!

Update #4

Results from the ultrasound of Paige's organs are mostly good news today. He organs are still larger than they should be but have significantly reduced in size since since her diagnosis day on 9/9. She has 2 more days of steroids which hopefully will make things easier on her. She is currently having trouble getting around and sleeping. Thanks for all the support! #playforpaige

Update #3

Paige had a rough chemo day on Thursday but is hanging in there. Her stomach has gotten so large that the doctors wanted to do an ultrasound to check her organs. The results showed nothing to be alarmed about. The doctors think it's just the steroids making her bloated. Suggested that we remove as much salt from her diet as we can. This is proving difficult since all she eats is cottage cheese, string cheese, and mac and cheese. The hope is steroids stop this week and everyone can get some sleep! Thanks for everyone's support, please keep sharing!

Update #2

Paige was a chemo trooper today! She had her latest round of chemo and was a brave girl getting her PICC line dressing changed. The steroids make her never stop eating and not much sleep at night but she's still a pretty happy girl.

Update #1

Thank you for all the support - worldwide (US, Canada, Australia)! Paige is responding very well to the treatment she had received so far. Her numbers are improving and she is such a good little brave girl at her appointments. She wears her mask, happily cooperates for vitals - even blood pressure which she calls a "wheeze". One drug is making her eat like crazy. She eats small amounts, constantly, even waking for a 3am string cheese. It's been an intense few weeks, but they are slowly getting into a routine of sorts. Nick volunteered for the job of flushing her PICC line daily. Shauna will be able to work a handful of hours in the coming weeks.
