Brennan’s surgery was 2.5 hrs. It went well. They were able to remove the obstruction in his bowels. Hope to start some more chemo in next couple of days.

Brennan is pale, elevated heart rate staying at 160, and NO urine since 1:30 pm today even after they've increased fluid intake greatly. And turns out he has a fever now. Brennan’s right side is swollen and he's still in a lot of pain even with increasing morphine pain pump twice.

Brennan will also begin chemotherapy tomorrow evening. From my understanding the 2 drugs he will be given are 2 which he has not had. And typically can be done as an out patient but given Brennan's current status he will remain inpatient.. No clue as to when we will return home. Our hopes are to make this tumor respond to treatment.
Palliative care are words I wish I never knew.
Brennan is classified as Relapsed.
Things change so fast, not even a month ago we thought Brennan was doing so much better in his treatment.
One thing we’ve learned is to expect the unexpected!

No chemo today. The Dr’s need to identify the new cancer first in order to find the right drugs to treat.

The Pathology Dept. @ TCH is working the weekend to try and identify Brennan’s cancer. Without a type they can not treat.

Well its sure Brennnan DOESN'T have neuroblastoma anymore. Apparently no one knows what Brennan has, but that its a high grade malignant sarcoma.. they have no clue what cell this came from, in turn have no plan in place to effectively treat him right now. So we sit and wait for a plan. They did say, Brennan went from NB to a different aggressive cancer. =(
Check our Brennan’s Buddies page. There are many children that need help and prayers. Some are still fighting, some are Angels in Heaven. The one thing they all need is for people like you to share their story and raise awareness so changes can be made.
How fast things change. Just a couple of weeks ago we thought the worst was behind us. Little did we know what lay ahead.
