The next game plan for Aydan is to start chemotherapy on Wednesday October 7, 2015. We struggled on making the decision to do chemotherapy because the outcome are usually not favorable but after doing heavy research and talking with several doctors, we feel that this is the only option that would buy additional time for him to fight this. This will NOT cure the disease but we are hoping that he might beat the odds. He will be in the hospital for around 4 days for the beginning of the cycle. After 4 days at hospital, he will go to the clinic for weekly visits. This equals to one cycle. He is planning to complete 4 cycles. Aydan will not be able to go to school for around 4 months due to low immune system during treatment. He still CAN have visitors as long no one is sick! Aydan is very angry and upset that he has to go through this. He is especially worried about losing his hair. It is a very hard age for him to accept but we are optimistic for him to go through this journey.
