Haven't done an update in a good while, cian was going through intense phases of treatment and we were all very drained from it. So this will be a long update
As of this month, cian has started a phase called "maintenance " which is great news! This phase lasts until mid to late 2021. He still has to have chemotherapy daily, another chemo weekly and another one that is monthly. It sounds like a lot, but the dosage and chemos are a lot less intense. We should start to see cian on a more steady path, his immune system should be a good bit stronger, his hair will start to grow back and he will have more normality in his life!
It's still a long road, we know he will still be in hospital a lot, chances of getting sick are still a concern and we are more than happy to take the bad with the good. Some days/weeks are going to be rough, but we have such hope for him!
Cian has fought this far, and the fight grows with every day. He's a warrior, and the most amazing boy. I hate having to tell him no to things he sees kids his age do, but I plan to make up for it the second he's finished treatment. I always tell him about the love and thoughts that everyone gives him, and it gives us strength. Thank you so much, to all those who check in and think of cian, who've raised money and attended events to do with childhood cancer. It's astounding how many hearts Cian has touched.
And apoligies to anyone I've yet to reply to, admittedly myself and Daniel are a little burned out as it's been hectic the last 8months.
Ps:Cian got to go to Dublin zoo a few weeks back, it was so nice!
