Death of a Superhero

A Family's Story about Courage, Bravery and the Defining Moments of LOVE

Our sweet, lil' baby love lost his battle to AML Leukemia on March 8, 2010. We fought long, hard and very aggressively for 2.5 years, only to have his cancer come back for the fourth time to finally take his life. He was only 3 years old.

This entire blog is about Hunter's amazing journey. It's about his life and his love......his determination and his courage.......his absolutely, brilliant personality, and the affect he's had on people all over the world.

He's left an unimaginable footprint on this earth and has changed the lives of thousands of individuals. People who didn't realize how precious life was, now live it with extreme gratefulness. People who took every minute they get to spend with their children for granted, now savor every last second. And people who weren't quite sure what love is all about, now love deeper, love stronger and love with every ounce of their soul.

People all around the world have shared their love, their well wishes, their prayers and their inspiration, and we could have NEVER achieved as much as we did without them. We are humbled by their generosity & their true friendships & are forever grateful for every last person that has come into our lives through our experience with Hunter. He was our precious baby love who we loved and cherished with all our hearts and we are forever crushed and terribly, broken-hearted.

Dance in the clouds baby cakes. Mom & dad are watching proudly & you will remain so very close to our hearts for all of eternity.

Chemo Day 9

Day 8 was uneventful yet still hot. He had a 102 fever at around 8pm. However, it broke quickly and it only happened twice instead of three times. And for the first time in weeks he didn't get hot during the night.

Today on day 9 he had a light fever of 102 early in the morning and it broke quickly. He didn't suffer again with a fever all day until about 8 pm when he became hot to the touch. This time he registered a blistering 104. Again, our son is a hot tamale.

The good news is that even during his 104 fever his mood was upbeat. He smiled regularly and I think I even heard him laugh a little. Maybe it was a laugh - maybe not - but at least he's not moaning. Thank goodness.
