Austin came home tonight. Compassionate Hospice will take over his care at home.  Not sure how much time he has left, the family was told a few weeks to a few months.  Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers!

I apologize, I updated this Sunday from my phone but apparently it did not save.

Saturday evening Austin began having a major seizure.  He was transported via 911 to CMC in Toms River.  From there he was airlifted to CHOP.  All bloodwork and CAT scan came back normal.  However, he had a MRI on Monday which showed that treatment is not working and his cancer is too aggressive.  The Drs feel treatment is only buying him time at this point.  His family is planning on bringing him home, making him comfortable and helping him enjoy what time he has left. 

PLEASE keep Austin and his entire family in your thoughts and prayers.  They could use all the support they can get!
