Baby Trucker Update #12- Ups and Downs

Shauna Duke shared the update below regarding Trucker earlier today.  Life is certainly full of ups and downs, good times and bad times, and after watching Trucker and his family fight cancer these past few months, the words of Ecclesiastes, “There is a time for every activity under the sun,” ring truer in my life. Please pray for the doctors to find the right antibiotics, for Trucker’s fever to go down, and for his infection to be cleared up.

Baby Trucker #12


As a cancer mamma everyday my emotions swing back and forth on the pendulum of sadness from watching trucker go through this journey and missing my family and life to the other side where as i watch so many babies around us loosing the battle that i feel grateful we still have a fight to fight!! This season is emotionally exhausting and gut wrenching!! and saying that here is a trucker update.. Scans are not until next week so just when we were thinking yay we have a week off lets party, Our #littlelegend spiked a fever. It started yesterday morning and since then it has been a roller coaster of high fevers, shaking, belly pain, and after several attempts to put in a temporary IV, and a very sleepless night we know now that we have an infection in his main hickman line!! This is the line that they surgically place that goes straight to his jugular vein and is how he gets chemo, medicine, and how they draw blood from him.. We are working on the right kind of antibiotic right now to prevent surgery and try to save it but at this point we are not sure. So please remember us this weekend in your prayers as we once again switch gears to hospital mode and as i continually remind myself to #chooseLOVE#cancersucks #LOVEbeatscancer #imissourlife#theyoungandbrave #kidsgetcancertoo #teamtrucker#keepontruckontruckerboy
