In a 4 month period of time, these brave little boys were hospitalized for 5, 1-2 week episodes of intense treatment . They were in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit because of the high rate of side effects of the infusions. These 4 months were spent with 5 cycles of 1-2 weeks in the PICU, and 2-3 weeks at home. Both children have completed their protocols and are enjoying being pre-schoolers.
Throughout their treatments, they loved to play together, and when they were able, they would play on their I-pads. At one time, one of the boys was in isolation, so they couldn't actually be in the same room together. They used "Walkie-Talkies" to stay connected, but they both were unhappy that they couldn't be together to play. Their families have been there with them every step of the way.
They have won a great race.
