Wow, Koen has just done extremely well this round of chemo. Normally with the start of chemo rounds he has all ready thrown up ten times and is just so horrible. This time he hasn't even thrown up once or even complained of nausea! I feel so BLESSED today and re assured that GOD is right besides us on this fight. Sometimes we forget this (guilty) I am just so Thankful to know such a Loving, Understanding caring GOD! Thank you to all that said a prayer for him to be able to handle the start of this round. You all have truly blessed me/us also! It's so comforting knowing your all praying and thinking about all of us. Your Koen's prayer warriors! THANK YOU! This is really sad, but I thought I would share it so you all know and remember to just keep those prayers coming and what alittle fighter he is. Koen just broke down in my arms today crying and just asking why and saying how unfair it was, etc. This is the first time that he's ever really just wanted to yell about it. He's gotten sad before and kind of tells you how unfair it was. But today it felt like I had a little person that totally got it today and was just breaking down in my arms. It is so unbelievable hard and I just wish I could take his place! I really pray that I at some point I will see God's plan in all this. He also, when he’s gotten mad at his brothers yelled at them how they should have to go the hospital all by themselves. Sorry if this brings tears to your eyes, but I just wanted you all too see how tuff this little boy is. Sometimes I think "man I just wish I could take his place but in the back of my head I'm saying "I don't know that I'm as strong as Koen is! He's so AMAZING and I couldn't be more proud of him!
Koen was taken to the ER July 30th. He has been diagnosed with a Massive Hepatoblastoma Tumor of the liver. A biopsy was done on Aug. 2nd. Koen's family will know more about the journey they are facing after the results from the biopsy are back. Koen is at the Children's Hospital in Denver, CO.
