This is Noah just before he was diagnosed
This is just after he came home from the hospital
This is when he hit his highest weight during the first round of steroids. He gained 20lbs in 3 weeks
But who couldn't love those chubby cheeks:)
The weight is starting to slowly come off
Basically back to "normal"
And then the hardest round of chemo begins
Snuggling with dad during the roughest phase of chemo. During this phase, Noah could hardly walk, couldn't eat or drink because of horrible mouth sores, and was in excruciating pain. He was on morphine to control it. And even with his counts at 0, he never once had to be admitted into the hospital. He did miss the entire month of December for school though.
Still loving his brother during the worst of the chemo
Christmas Eve, 2012. Feeling much better here, ready for the New Year!
