Kane is finished with 3 of his 4 month long infusions, he will start his last one in May and the plan is to be done with infusions on May 24. His last day of therapy happened to be on his 25th birthday, not sure if they gave him some birthday cake or not. He still needs to get cleared to go back to work, which he is looking forward to. We are continually amazed at the positive attitude Kane has kept through this whole ordeal and so appreciative of all the support he has gotten. His girlfriend has been his biggest advocate, supporter and caretaker, we are grateful she is there for him.
Kane was discharged from rehab yesterday and spent today with the Temple football team and the blood drive that was set up in his honor. He found out he had around 70 blood transfusions and wanted to help out. He completed the first of 95 units of chemo, he will go 5 days a week for 4 weeks then will have 4 weeks off. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and donations. He is on his way to a “normal” life.
Kane is in a rehab center and will begin his second type of chemo in 2 weeks.
Kane is doing very well at Megee rehab. He is getting stronger everyday. He is able to get out of bed and transfer to a chair with very little help. He is getting three therapies every day which makes him pretty tired by the end of the day. The therapist and doctors will meet on Wednesday and we will be able to find out how long he will be in rehab.
