Round 3 starts

Kaden will be starting his 3rd round of chemotherapy on Tuesday (7/4). This will be a different set of chemotherapy drugs from the first 2 rounds. It is expected that he will remain in hospital for the 5 days of this treatment round. Hopefully he will be returning home again on Saturday night. Since being on the feeding tube, for about 10 days now, he has managed to regain back around 2 kilograms in weight. This is a great achievement, and this will provide him with the extra strength needed, going into this next round. We all sending our love, strength and best wishes to Kaden and the family for this time. xoxo

Growing Stronger

Over the past few days Kaden has been slowly increasing the size of his special nutrient feed through the feeding tube. At the same time the K-man has been having various other meals as well. A big hit was Dad’s special chicken with mayonnaise. All this good work has paid off yesterday morning, when checking his weight, he had put on almost 1 kg in just a few days! That is a great achievement by Kaden, and his family. There has also been a noticeable improvement in his energy levels over the past few days. Keep up the great work guys, as the K-man grows stronger! 🙂

Getting the Nutrients

Yesterday Kaden went back into hospital early in the morning, and had a feeding tube put in, before returning home again in the afternoon. Naturally the K-man was not too pleased with having to get this done, however this is going to help him to gain some weight and give him all the good nutrients that he needs, before entering his next round of Chemo after Easter. The feeding tube will take a day or so before it softens up and becomes more comfortable for the wee man; but last night at home the little trooper was already getting used to it. Mum and Dad were doing a fantastic job in operating the feeding tube after receiving their crash course at the hospital. A great benefit of the feeding tube is that Kaden can now just eat when he feels like it, and that it can still feed him while he is asleep.

In around a weeks time it is expected that Kaden will be a different person, with more energy, and feeling a whole lot better. 🙂

Round 2 completed

Kaden finished his 2nd round of chemotherapy yesterday, and has gone back home for rest and recovery. His pain is better managed this time around, and last night he managed to sleep through the night.

At this stage he is expected to start a 3rd round of chemo in 2 weeks time. It is expected that this 3rd round will be an in-hospital stay. He needs to try very hard to stock up on his tucker in the next 2 weeks, so as to give him strength going into this next round. This is no easy feat, as the poor man is obviously not feeling his best. Mum and Dad are doing a fantastic job, trying all sorts of food and giving Kaden lots of encouragement. He has done very well so far today, having some baked beans on toast, corn chips, cheese and bacon roll, and 2 protein drinks! Keep up the great work Kaden! xoxo

Round 2

Kaden commenced his 2nd round of an expected 5-day course of Chemotherapy on Monday (16/3). At this stage he is receiving this treatment as an outpatient. The downside is travelling 2 hours back and forth to the hospital each day, but the upside is that he gets to stay at home at night 🙂 At this stage Kaden has not been in too much pain, and although of course he is still rather tired, he is still managing to keep up with some of his recent activities. We are all wishing them the very best that his pain will remain manageable. xoxo

Heading Home!

Latest news is that Kaden is heading home! It will be great for him to be back at home in his own room and bed. And to give Mum and Dad a break from the travel to and from hospital. Big hugs to Kaden, Finn, Lee and of course Liam, glad to have his big brother at home. xoxo
