Arthur celebrated his second Birthday on November 4, 2011. The family was so very grateful to celebrate his Birthday the day after at Scottie's Play House in Mcminnville. We give a great big Thank You to Seeds Of Hope for all of their dedication and hard work.
Some more good news; Arthur has had his arm cast removed. He is ready for the freedom.
The cast was placed after surgery and had been on since August 17th 2011. In the future he will have to have more surgery's on his arm, but for now he is enjoying the freedom. The doctor's are still struggling to find out why Arthur continues to have digestive tract issues long after they placed his g-tube in.
Arthur is continuing with chemo for each treatment. It takes longer for him to recover now from chemo. Arthur and family are working very hard to provide the children with as much of a normal family life as possible but find it more and more of a challenge as the sleepless nights keep mounting.
Keep them close in your thoughts and prayers,
The Blankenship Family
