Team Officer Edison - Update
Posted 06/09/2017 by Sarah Pearce
"This little guy had a pretty good day. He finished his first dose of chemo and now gets to take a 2 week break! He did get sick quite a bit today so we are working to find the right cocktail to take care of that. He will spend the day hydrating tomorrow and may even get to go home!!"
Keep the prayers coming, all!!
We have some VERY EXCITING news on the horizon about an upcoming benefit - stay tuned for more information :)

6/8/17: Edison is being given benadryl, zofran and adavan to combat the side effects of the chemo therapy treatments.
6/7/17: Edi will start his first round of chemo around 10 am today. They will be giving him Doxorubicin, which will take about 15 minutes, and then Cisplatin, which will take about 4 hours. So far he has been doing great! Surgery didn't slow him down at all.
6/6/17: Edison had his port put in for chemotherapy treatments, as well as an MRI done on a lymph node that came up during the PET scan. He and mom are now getting settled at the castle!
