So, with that being said ~ let's meet Kaleb!
During his is battle Kaleb has undergone the following treatments and therapies (I quoted the text from his mother on the questionnaire). Kaleb's therapies and treatments are done at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Multiple MRI's & CT Scans. He had a Port put in. 33 days of Radiation along w/ 42 days of Chemotherapy. Now battling his 10 rounds of chemo (he has had 4 of 10 rounds already.) He has his CBC checked every week (which means his port accessed every week.) He also lost his hair during Radiation treatment. Also switching medications around to stop his seizures he was having (which stopped once he started Radiation). He also does Occupational Therapy for his left hand (which he lost the strength in during his long seizure he had at the very beginning).
Through all of this so far ~ Kaleb has managed to still be the fun loving, active, happy child that he was before the cancer. The most frightening moment for Kaleb's mother was not knowing what was wrong with Kaleb, but her most exciting moment was to hear his tumor wasn't growing anymore!
I just LOVE this picture of Kaleb! He dressed in his gown for Halloween as a cancer doctor! See the chemo duck too?!
