Happy Easter!
LaKota is doing really good, and I am doing good after my surgery. Steve's job does not look too good at this point, they told him to look for another job, because they are not for sure when they will be calling anybody back to work, it is so scary, and depressing, scary how the economy is, and scary about the health insurance.
Your always in our prayers.
Love LaKota, and her mom Debbie. <>

Hip hop, hippety hop
My “Easter Bunny” went off to the shop,
He bought me an egg and lots of chocs
And packed them into a cardboard box.
Then he wrapped it with paper and shiny string
It really was such a pretty thing.
Disaster struck when I opened the door-
He slid across the parquet floor,
He went round the corner and past the stairs
And finished up in a pile of chairs.
Of the Easter goodies not a trace,
he’d thrown them into my fireplace!
So a warning before you go opening doors
Make sure your “Bunny” has non-slip paws!

Happy Easter

With lots of love,

Everyone at Post Pals

Hi Linda, I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS!! You are done. I hope it went well getting his port out. Does it feel weird to not give out meds everyday? It's been a long road and I'm so happy for you. We have one more year, but I guess it's gone pretty fast for us since maintenance started. Call me if you want to go out for a "no more chemo" celebration lunch! Thank you for all of your support.

I can't believe that you only have a couple months left-you could actually start counting it in weeks now! Thanks for all of your help and encouragement in getting us to maintenance.

We've never met, but I've been reading your journal for quite some time. My son, Jacob, was diagnosed with ALL at the age of 15 months. Tomorrow he will receive ARA-C in clinic and stay accessed for us to administer over the next three days. Then it is on to maintenance. YaHoo!! It is nice to read other sites...especially ones that show that there truly is an end to this life full of hospital visits, blood test, needles and chemo. Thanks for sharing your is inspiring.

hope those mouth sores are gone by now and you are off enjoying the summer! Have you been to the pool yet? I bet you are a pro on the diving board this year! What about fishing? Have you caught any big bass or northerns?
Well, what ever you are doing...ENJOY because it'll be time to go back to school before you know it!
Don't be too bummed about missing the zoo.....It will always be there to go see...I remember WAY back when we were doing charity fund raising for the zoo.....Wow am I ever getting old! There use to only be Como Park Zoo when I was your age......

I knew Danny was overdue for a clinic visit and was glad to read your update. Thank you for the nice message! It does feel good, but will feel even better to finish with the port removal and BMB. I still cannot believe it. Anyway, hope you guys have a great Memorial Day. We are leaving to go camping in half an hour so I better finish up here. Take care!

We too are done with treatment (Sept 28th) and I get excited than scared to be excited..... it's hard to explain isn't it? I think it is a protective thing we do.... what if we get really excited and then we get some bad news? Would it be doubly hard?

I don't expect any bad news, but that fear is always present. I guess only those parents who are facing that really knows how the heart feels at this point of treatment.

Take care -

Hi Linda,

My gosh, glad to hear things are back on track now.
I've been a little out of the loop apparently!
Now I am wondering how Danny tolerated his bone marrow
biopsy? For CCG-1991 now on the last treatment day they do
one last BMB and LP. I guess they used to not do that.
I just remember in the beginning Austin was so sore
on his hips. I'd like to be able to quietly give him
the heads-up if he will feel achey from it come June.
Well this got a little long for me. Things will continue
to go well, I can feel it. Take care!

Sorry its been awhile since I posted but I have been working like crazy! Lots of sick people in Hawaii! It sounds like you are doing great though! That brings a great Big smile on my face when I read how good you are doing! You were pretty brave with that flu shot...even I flinched when I got mine !
I am here in Minnesota visiting and boy it sure is alot colder here than it is in Hawaii! I am not sure if I like it or not! Brings back some good memories though:) Like sledding , skating,snowmobiling and ice fishing! My family says that they ordered the snow just for me! I think I prefer the white sand beaches in Hawaii:)
Well, I hope you have a very merry Christmas and an even better New Year !
Take care!

I read your update and I couldn't believe it. Now that Austin is in school we have noticed a "talking during class problem". We had conferences last week for First grade and his teacher said otherwise he's a good student, but Austin has a hard time sitting still all day in class and listening. We asked if Austin could have a seat up in the front of the classroom. Please don't feel badly about Danny, I feel reassured (maybe the wrong word) that someone else is experiencing this. I wonder if Austin got a bit too much one-on-one or down time during treatment-- now he doesn't know what to do in a big group of kids besides get hyper. They are making up for lost time! Anyway, was just checking in quick for an update. Hope everyone is feeling better soon. Take care, sending lots of good thoughts your way...

Hey there Danny, how are things going in school? I hope you are having lots of fun! I still remember my kindergarten teacher ...Miss MacIver....She was the best and I hope you also have a teacher that is as great as she was! She left a lasting memory in my heart forever!
Glad to hear that you are back up to 100% on the methotrexate..! Hope you are feeling great! It will all be over and done with before you know it and this long hard fight will just be a passing memory and then you can really start enjoying life!
So, are you planning to go trick or treating for Halloween? If so, what are you gonna dress up as? Tell mom to take a pic of you and put it on the site....

Hi Linda, Danny and family

Glad to hear the last clinic visit went well! Last year in Kindergarten Austin hated to leave school for clinic appts too! We ended up rescheduling them for after school... We went to clinic today (no counts yet though) and Austin said he can't wait until first grade is done because then he's done with all his medicines. He happens to end treatment right after the school year ends, so it's nice to have an OT "mark" he can visualize. Anyway, so glad to hear school is going well and everyone is healthy. And hey! You made it to the next clinic appt. without being admitted to the hospital. Take care and keep up the good work.

Bummer to hear about your teeth but just hang in there, it could be soo much worse! now after you get them fixed up please remember to brush them in the morning and at night before bed and also no eating or drinking anything except water after you brush before bedtime!
I hope you enjoy you camping trip, once again you make me realize just how much I miss my summers in Minnesota! bring lots of bug spray though and remember to check for those dreaded ticks! Will you be going fisihing also? If so, I hope you catch a big one! Tell mom to fill us all in on your camping adventure!

Hi Linda,
Glad to hear things are going well for you
too! I can't believe that Danny is going off the diving
board at the pool! We have a water park in Red Wing,
and the most Austin can do is go down the big slides.
I'm impressed!
So you are finally at the 2 year anniversary too... Such
a wide range of emotions on this day. Happy for good health
today, but always aware for how unpredictable life can be.

Hi Danny, hope you are still enjoying your summer, the kids in Hawaii start back to school next week. They have a short vacation in the summer, only 6 weeks because they go to school year round.
Have you been hanging out at the pool and enjoying the slide? Are you working on making it all the way across the pool so you can jump off that diving board? You keep trying and never give up! If it doesn't happen this year I know you will make it off that board next year!
Take care and I be checking for an update again soon.

Linda... glad to hear the doc just wanted to discuss the sedation change. I would've been a nervous wreck too. Austin always goes to the OR, and while it makes for a slightly longer day, he tolerates it very well. You can still go in with Danny until he falls asleep too. And you'll get to see Dr. Neglia more, since he has to be there for the spinals if a fellow is doing it.
Take care,

Please, don´t be ashamed of your reaction at the clinic. It is only natural - you are stressed - this disease makes this to parents - You are a great caring mother and Danny is a lucky boy to have your love. Special kisses from Brazil.

Hey there Danny and family, I am glad to see that you are doing well. I swear to you, our boys are on the same page! Ron's ANC last week was 3500, his 6MP had to be raised too.

Today it's almost 70 so we are realy enjoying this weather!
Jacob's cousin Chanel spent the night tuesday night and last night we went to PopPops house for his birthday and to see Grams. It was fun. Chanel had a new bunny. He was so cute. He was gray and had very big feet and floppy ears!

Oh shoot, hope you guys were sent back home today. Austin was just in last week from Tues night to Fri afternoon with a temp. Can you imaging when we are OT and our kids can get temps and colds and we don't have to go through all this stuff...I can't wait. Take care and hope to see a good update soon!

Red Wing, MN USA - Saturday, March 15, 2003 7:59 PM CST
Hi Danny,
Bummer that you are stuck back in the hospital:( That wasn't the kind of update I was hoping to see! You get rid of that fever now, give it to someone else with a stronger imune system...heck, put it in an envelope and send it to me...I will fight it off for you !
Hope you are feeling better soon and I pray that the cultures don't grow any more ugly bugs!
Will check in again soon!
Bye for now!

Sorry I missed your Birthday Danny! Hope you had a great time! Did you get all the presents you wanted? I heard you got a little snow the other day in MN. At least I know they got some in Shakopee.
How is your Puppy doing?. How have you been feeling latley?
Well I just wanted to drop in and say Hi!
talk to you later

Dawn <>
Wahiawa , Hi - Wednesday, March 5, 2003 2:42 PM CST

Hi Dan, hope you had a good birthday yesterday!
Five years old means you're a big kid now. I know
this because Austin told me when he turned 5.
Roller skating sounds so fun. I wonder if you'll
do the Hokey-Pokey at the rink? When I was little
our roller rink used to have a special time every
day to do that.
And Linda, Austin has been having a really hard
time with this decadron pulse too. The thing I look
forward to the most is being done with the steroids!
Take care and have a good week.

ALOHA Danny and family, Hope you all enjoyed the trip to Florida:) Sounds like fun! I bet it was a nice break from the cold weather in Minnesota! I know there isn't much snow on the ground yet but I bet it will be coming soon just like last year when it snowed so much in March!I was born and raised in MN but currently live in Hawaii so I have become very spoiled by nice weather year round. Over here we make Sand Angels instead of snow angels:)Did you get a chance to spend some time on the beach at Florida? Swimming in the ocean is lots funner because you don't have to deal with all the weeds like you do in the lakes back in sunfish nibbling at yur toes either!
Well I just wanted to stop by and say ALOHA, I hope you continue to feel good Danny! I look forward to updates and will be checking in on my new little buddy from Minnesota........ doncha know:)
Take care and God bless you all!

I can't believe Danny got the flu right before you left!
Great that they worked it out outpatient. Right before
we left, we had Austin's counts checked and his ANC was 650.
We were off chemo for our Disney adventure also. :o)
Can't wait to see your pictures! Did you get one of Danny
on the Star Wars speeder bike? Welcome back...

Hello Family! Im thinking of you down in sunny florida.
Sigh! We are sitting here in Maryland under 3 feet of snow!
The kids have been off school all week and it was just announced that they are off tomorrow! Woo-Hoo. So we got a little vacation too. I can't wait to hear about florida and how big goofy has grown and if Mickey's ears got any bigger!

I didn't know you guys were headed for Florida in 2 weeks! That's wonderful. We were down there last year at the end of January and the weather was beautiful. 70 - 80 degrees, no humidity and best of all... sunlight! It is such a shock to leave snowy, gray MN and walk off the plane in FL to palm trees and green grass! You will have such a great time. Recommended by Austin: the River Rapids Ride at Animal Kingdom, shooting aliens with Buzz Lightyear at Magic Kingdom, Lego Land and the jumping water at Downtown Disney, and of course, the Star Wars stuff at MGM. There was not a single thing we didn't enjoy. Have a great week and let the countdown begin! If you think you can smuggle me in a suitcase let me know soon.

=) Snow again here! It's crazy and almost unheard of.
The kids only have 2 snow days left before they start tacking it on at the end of the year!
Today it's snowing and the funny thing is that they didn't even predict it!
Jacob and Dad went to the Baltimore Aquarium today for a field trip.
I hope it doesn't snow too much longer!
Will write soon. So much to talk about!

Finally SNOW in December! Im sure you are used to getting alot of snow but here in
MD its almost unheard of to get snow in December! Yesterday it snowed all day for a record 7.5"!
That beats the record WAY back in 1910 of 5"! Its just wonderful.
Jake was off from school yesterday and today too! That makes for a long fun weekend!
I hope your feeling better & home soon. Im thinking of you!

Hi everyone,
Sorry to hear you are stuck at the U, hope Danny is feeling better today. Hope you aren't going nuts from being cooped up yet!
I hope the Acyclovir wipes out that chicken pox and you are home for the weekend. Can I ask... did Danny get the Chicken pox vaccine ever? I am just curious if I should watch out (more so) for Austin (he had the vaccine). Nancy Grimsrud, when she was here, told us that there was a slight chance the chemo might wipe out any immunity to CP. They didn't really know for sure since the CP vaccine hasn't been around for enough, to see if it was effective in cancer kids.
Anyway, take care, will be thinking of you all! Get well and stay well!

Just checking in...
That's good you've decided to go to Fairview from now on... we have also had to tell our local hospital "Okay, we are just going to drive up to the cities instead and get this done..." There's only so much fumbling around you as a parent can take and to expect your child to take.

So many things you mentioned today I can identify with! Austin had to have blood out of his arm last month and oh boy he was not happy about that either. Thank goodness for those ports, huh. Also--I shamefully agree, I really enjoy not having to give those chemo meds when they are on hold. Gives us a taste of what we have to look forward to in OT life! No hassles with food or drinks or anything.
Well, take care- hope everyone has a good weekend.

Ok Ok Ok. First Im feeling like a heal for not signing since the 10th. Im going into serious sad mode and then the page loads and Im almost falling over when I started to read your words. I could almost feel your fear. Linda, Im so sorry you had to go through that. I hope that the next set of counts are better and there are no more flags. They really should be more careful of how they handle that and maybe more informative with the new requlations. Something like that is going to scare the pants of some parents. I hope that Dan continues to do well in school. I will keep my fingers crossed. Big Hugs Family
Angel Jen'fer <>
- Sunday, September 22, 2002 at 10:45 PM (CDT)
Good luck with the counts, please keep us updated. I am sure he will have rebounded by the time you get them rechecked, although Ron was off chemo for a full month last year due to really low counts. Hang in there!

Hi Linda-
My heart started pounding just reading about "flags" coming up with Dan's blood counts. What a scare. Glad it turned out to be nothing...
Glad he's warming up to pre-school too, that's cute that he's proud of himself for making it through the day.
I just wanted to stop by and see how things are going. Hope that ANC goes up soon. Austin has had to be off his oral chemo during Maintenance a few times for a week or two due to low ANC.
Take care!

Hi Linda, just checking in on how Danny's clinic appt. went. Glad to see all is well!
Enjoy your camping trip and the rest of the summer. With the way it's been cooling off, hopefully we'll have a nice long fall season.
About Pre-School, I'm sure Dan will warm right up to it. Austin started last year (late) during his Delayed Int. He was a little nervous, but was very excited about the idea of making new friends. On that first day, he ran out the door to the bus and waved good-bye. No hesitation & not worried at all about leaving me home alone!
Well, I'll close with a joke for Danny:
Q- What is the best way to catch a fish?
A- Have someone throw it to you!
Take care,

Hello Family! I hope this message finds you well and enjoying your day. We are being blessed with beautiful weather here. It's been in the Mid 80s with a wonderful breeze. I hope you are getting a break like we are. I am thinking of you today as I do everyday.

I think that we are all melted here. Yesterday we had a heat index of 115. Wow this is crazy. How are you doing there? Is it as hot there as it is here? Gotta think of some heat jokes.

Almost a year Dan. A few more days.

Hi Dan & Family!! I hope this message finds you well. We had another record day here today. I think it was 103 with the heat index. You would think we were in Arizona!!!

Hi Dietz Family,
One year today. I know this is a much better day than a year ago! Hope all continues to go well. Have a FUN summer.

Mtka, MN USA - Wednesday, July 17, 2002 at 04:22 PM (CDT)
Hi Linda, one year ago today, huh. Hope you are doing well. The hard part of Austin's one year anniversary was remembering how I felt that day. I was so unprepared for a leuekmia diagnosis- at that time- I thought he was handed a death sentence. Now I'm thankful Austin is alive and well today & that his diagnosis was not a terminal or high risk case.
Anyhow, glad to hear summers not slowing Daniel down any! I just came by to check and see how Danny's clinic visit went yesterday. Hopefully well. Take care and hope to read an update soon.

Hi Linda & Danny,
Glad to hear T-ball has started! It's a good way for the kids to burn off some energy- and yes- so cute...Austin had practice today but it started to rain, and was cut short. So now he is home taking a nap with his little sister. They look so innocent when they are sleeping! Not like the little devils they really are.
Hope Danny continues to do well and feel good. Have you started to keep a little calender and check off the spinal taps left?? Austin just made it past the "2 years left" mark. Time isn't going as slowly as I thought it would.
Anyway. Hope everyone is having a fun summer.
Take care,

Austin's favorite part of the new Star Wars was when Yoda started kicking butt. Who would've guessed that little guy could move so quickly?
Linda, I have a link for you to check out when you have time. Maybe you have already read it; You Know You're the Parent of a Kid with Cancer When...

Long term Maintainence....YEA!! Hopefully it will be smoothing sailing for you for a long time.....
Do you do liquid decadron? Wesley tried that and it didn't work AT ALL!! Now we do pills, we crush them up and mix then with chocolate syrup (like you use for chocolate milk) the chocolate has a strong enough flavor to cover up the taste of the decadron...just a suggestion but it sure worked well for us. Anything we could do to make meds easier on Wesley made meds easier on us too

Hello Danny,
My son was 5 when he was dx'd with ALL in Sept 2000. We live in Minnesota too. We are email friends with the last two people who signed your guestbook! We think that the more people we know who are going through what we are going through makes our journey easier. I hope you continue to feel good. My son is doing well too. I love the pictures of your puppy. We have two dogs. One is 11 years old and the other one is a puppy-he is a crazy guy. He is very good to take naps with when you don't feel well (if he doesn't snore too loud) I hope your puppy makes you feel as happy as ours do.

Hi Dan. I hope everything goes well tomorrow and that you will be feeling much better after. Christmas will be here so soon! I hope you're as excited as I am! Jake was super glad you liked the pictures he colored on the box. He was really excited to be able to color on a box that was going to fly in a plane and be seen by alot of people. He got a little carried away though when he started drawing digimon monsters flying around the gingerbread house! Hahaha. That's when Angel Jen'fer decided he had colored enough! Jaden really liked his part of the box too. You take care big guy and have a super fun holiday. Hugs!

This is Sara and Austin from the U! Just wanted to check out the website. So glad to hear everything is going well. Take care and have a happy holiday season. Here is a joke for your kids from Austin... Why did Santa wear 2 pairs of pants golfing? Give up? In case he got a hole in one!

Jacob and Jaden want to tell you hello and want to know if it's snowing there yet?? Jake loves snow alot but we don't get too much of it here. I like the pictures of you and Andrea in the hats and oh that photo of you guys in the whirlpool looks soooooo relaxing. I wish we had one or one close we could visit.

Danny, Joe, Linda, Ryan and Andrea,
We recieved your Christmas card last week and were very pleased to see how well Danny looks (and of course Ryan and Andrea). What a great thing having your own web page to keep people updated. When Justin had his accident, we had a journal for him, but it was on paper not the computer. We all enjoyed reading the messages. Keep up the great spirit. We know in our hearts everything will turn out. We will keep you all in our prayers. Danny, you continue to be good and take all your medicine, remember Santa is watching you. We will be checking your updates to see how things are going. Oh yeah Joe-GO BEARS!!!!!!!

Hey Handsome,
I think I am getting better at this whole E-mail thing. Guess who I saw?? NOPE! I saw your grandpa Steve he came into my work. He told me you are a little dare devil on your rollerblades, I believe it. Crazy Danny man on rollerblades(Don't scare your mom.) Glad to hear your doing so great and taking your medicine so good. I love the pictures your mom put up there so cute of you and the kids. I bet the neighbors got a kick out of you in your dragon costume. NO blowing fire please. Well handsome I better be off on my broom. What was Aunt Teres for halloween? What did your dad say "thats not a costume" tell him to be nice to Aunt Teres. Say hi to Ryan and Andrea for me, we miss you guys. Love ya, Aunt Teres

Hey hansome, This is a big step for Aunt Teres you know I have never done this before, but I figure you are worth learning it for. I hope you had a great day and your mom too. Tonya, Steve and Jamie had a great time at your house last Wed. playing, and the kids play was cute too. I hope I can remember how to do this without Uncle Joe's help, so I can write you little notes. We rented Spy kids because we were watching it at your house and remembered what a great show it was. Well I better go, but say hi to Andrea and Ryan for me. Take care of your mom big guy. I love you lots!

I miss talking to you Big Guy! I hope your feeling well and gearing up for halloween! Are you still going to be a dragon. Jaden is going to be barney and Jacob is going to be batman but is going to stay here and help mommy pass out candy. He's got a boo-boo arm and can't go too far, especially in the dark! Tell mommy I promise to write her a long letter soon. Can you give her a big hug for me? Can you hug your daddy too! Bye for now!

Hi Danny!
I am a friend of your Mommy and I'm so glad you have this cool web site so you can read all the fun messages from your friends and family. It's also a good way for me to keep up to date on all your activities (the good and the not so good). I'm sorry I haven't signed your guestbook earlier but you're very much on my mind and in my heart. I hope you are feeling better every day. Knowing your energy, I'm sure you will be back up and running circles around your Mommy and Daddy in no time! Keep taking all those yucky medicines because they will make you big and strong like your favorite superhero...who is your favorite superhero??? You are such a brave, little guy Danny! I continue to pray for you and your family and look forward to hearing more good status reports! Tell your Mommy and Daddy if they need anything, just call 'Aunt Becky'!
