4. some severe kids need infusion daily
And it's not a surprise to hear that those families have medical bills totaling a million dollars a year. THAT would have me rolled up in a fetal position even at the thought.

We used to see tiny kids, still in diapers, toddling around with helmets, double diapers and shin pads. And still bruising, but chugging along, as kids will do. It's both frustrating and amazing to see these kids.

My kid will bounce back from this probably halfway through the 6 week treatment. He's already so much better.
