May 10, 2011: Friday afternoon Sy was complaining of a tooth ache while at school, so when the school called Matt he immediately went to get him. Matt saw an abscess on his gums and took him to Salinas Memorial Hospital. He was later transferred that night back to LCPH where they drained the abscess and removed 2 teeth. He also had an infection in his port which they cleaned up and then removed his port. So after an unexpected surgery, Sy has 2 fewer teeth and spent 4 days in the hospital before getting discharged Monday night with more meds. They will return Thursday to have his most recent scans read before starting round 4 of chemo on Friday.
With chemo starting Friday Sy, Matt and Veronica will not be walking in the Cure Search for Children's Cancer walk on Saturday May 14. But if you still want to raise money for Children's Cancer you can donate in Sy's name and to his team (Sy's Stormtroopers).
We ordered more bracelets so be sure to get yours before this batch runs out. We are asking for a minimum of $10.00 per bracelet. Show your support for Sy's fight by wearing a Team Sy/ Cancer Sucks Bracelet. If you want one you can deposit the money into Sy Matthew Sherman Cancer Fund at any Wells Fargo. Account # 2681221061 and then let Matt or myself know you deposited money and we'll get them sent out to you.
