Update on Arthur !!

On March 14 Arthur had to  undergo an unscheduled surgery. The surgery was done due to an infection that developed around his port, due to his inability to fight off any infections at this time. The Doctor made several attempts to implant the port in his arm with no luck. Doctors ended up placing his port on the side of his neck. Sweet Arthur is in a lot of pain due to this surgery . He is still struggling to regain the health he so desperately needs now. The family asks that we all stay strong in prayers for Arthur.

Thank You

The family wants to send out a big THANK YOU ! to all our hard working friends at Cielo Blu.
The Spaghetti dinner fundraiser for Arthur went above and beyond what any one had imagined. This little boy and his family couldn't do it with out you. 
(please make sure you look at previous post to read about Arthur's present condition)

70 Days

 It took 70 days for Arthur to regain the health he needed to to get the recent round of chemo. The chemo lasted 5 days and on the first day of his chemo his blood count plummeted. Arthur's chemo started Feb 27th and ended on March 2. To this day he is still in the hospital not well enough to go home. The doctors have found 3 different viruses in his body. Arthur has a skin rash that the doctors don't know much about. The rash could be a reaction to the barrage of antibiotics he is on at this time.
The family is still thankful and holding on to all the prayers and thoughts being sent their way.
