Explore jaldrich504's Instagram Michael, my Angel. 💔My heart is broken, I woke up this morning with tears streaming down my cheeks. I wished I had a bad dream and that you were still here with us. I wished we all could have gone with you, I feel like our world has ended. I can see other people still living and I can't understand it.  You were the kindest person I've ever known. You loved life and couldn't wait to live it, you wanted a family and to travel. I was sure you were going to have it all. You were so deserving of it all. You were so good, and I'm so sorry that we couldn't make you better. I'm so sorry if you were scared, I'm so sorry my sweet baby.  You have been the one to comfort all of us over the last 5 months when you were the one who should have been comforted. You have cared more for others than yourself your entire life. What scared me most was when I would fear you weren't getting better, I already knew you were an Angel on earth, and didn't want God to take you back. You taught me to slow down and savor every moment, you taught me to be kind and patient. You taught me to forgive and love. You taught me to laugh and smile more. You went through hell and never complained. You were tortured for months and still smiled. You fought so hard in an unfair battle. You are my Hero always and forever. I love you.  We went to watch the sunset tonight over the ocean, our favorite place to be as a family. Only you weren't standing next to me, you were flying above us. Michael you are and always will be apart of our family, you will never be forgotten angel baby. Fly high with the Angels sweet boy. We love you so much. 💔🙏🏼🌅#teammichaelbear #bemorelikemichael #amlleukemia #mysonismyhero #reallifesuperhero #angelwings #ourangelinthesky #ripmysweetboy #untilwemeetagain #bellaboo 1483217918431069944_48805821

Michael's Dr's have done everything possible to save Michael but his lungs can not recover. He's still with us but slipping away. He's been the one that has comforted all of us through his fight. He's a real Angel, and anybody who knows him would agree. The most kind and caring person you will ever meet. The warmth of his smile and little giggle will forever be missed. Our sweet Bella understands how sick her brother is but along with Nick and I, we are still praying for a miracle. Please pray for Michael to come back to us.  There's so much more he can teach all of us. This isn't fair for him or anybody. Please God take away his pain. You are the ultimate healer. I beg you all to pray for my angel to stay with us. ❤🙏🏼💔🐻😇#teammichaelbear #myangel #familyfirst #myson #bellaboo #siblinglove #reallifesuperhero #mysonismyhero #amlleukemia  #stopchildhoodcancer #reallifeangel #keepfighting #bebrave #bemorelikemichael #allinalltogether #ibelieve #ibelieveinmiracles #pleasegod #chla #aml #childhoodcancerawareness 1481182522809698170_48805821

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram God please heal Michael. No child should have to endure what this angel has been through. No father should have to stand by  their child and feel complete helplessness. No sister should have to watch her hero suffer. No mother will ever feel complete again without seeing her baby smile or be able to talk to her again. Bella has asked me "Why did God choose him?" And again last night "when will God let us go home?" "Why hasn't God made brother better yet?" No mother should have to be asked these questions by her daughter. No nine year old should have to be as strong as she has been for the last 5 months. She only wants her best friend back and  to have things back to normal. Please continue to pray for both my babies, for comfort and peace,  and healing for Michael. Michael's strength and will to keep fighting is incredible. He's done everything he's had to. He has stayed positive the entire time.  I love you so much sweet Michael bear. You can do this baby!

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram This is what cancer does to children and our children's siblings! This is the first time Bella has seen Michael in a month. Since he is in the ICU we were able to get her out here to CHLA, he needed her. Just knowing she's in the room comforts him. Both of these incredible little angels have been so brave and so strong. Michael is now battling Severe Veno-Occlusive Disease. This is a complication from the chemotherapy he received prior to his BMT. VOD is liver and lung failure which leads to other organ failure as well. We were just told that Michael's donor's bone marrow has been accepted and is growing within his own. Which we are so grateful to the donor, the medical staff and medicine for doing everything they could. Most importantly I'm grateful to God and to my family and so many friends for continuing to pray and support my family. I ask you all to continue praying for Michael to have a full recovery and for his organs to improve and start working on their own. If it weren't for Cancer this never would have happened. Please help to raise awareness and donate when you can to this terrible disease. You will be helping find a cure for our children and saving the lives of so many innocent children. 🎗❤🙏🏼#nationalcancerday #worldcancerday #teammichaelbear #michaelbear #michaelsfight #ibelieve #findacureforcancer #bmt #chla #childhoodcancerawareness #allinalltogether #siblinglove #bestfriendsforever #VOD #amlleukemia #cancersucks #cancerfighter #fighton #helpspreadawareness #warrior  #cancerwarrior 1443114493119265173_48805821

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram Michael has been in the PICU for 8 days now. One of the possible side effects and complications of the chemo therapy Michael received prior to his bone marrow transplant is called VOD. His liver and kidneys began not functioning as they should which caused him to retain so much extra fluid and toxins that couldn't filter out. The build up of fluid has enlarged his liver and kidneys so much that it caused pressure and fluid to go into his lungs from his blood vessels leaking. He was started on a dialysis machine also used for CVVH to remove his blood from his body, filter it and put it right back in. This has been a continuous 24 hour treatment since he was admitted to the ICU. It seems to be working but will be a slow process of healing and his organs learning to work on their own again. He will get there, he has never stopped fighting! This has been the hardest and most devastating week of my life, I pray that he doesn't remember most of what he has been through. I never would have thought that hearing him say "hi" to me would mean so much after 5 days of him being asleep and sedated. All of your prayers are working, they are giving me hope that he will make it through this. Somehow we are all surviving this, not one part of it has been easy but this last week has been the most difficult. Michael has started talking and becoming more clear. He's becoming less confused, and more aware. I can see the light at the end of this dark tunnel and thank you all for your continued love and support. ❤🙏🏼❤#teammichaelbear #michaelbear #ibelieve #allinalltogether #bmt #chla #thankyoutothemedicalstaff #thankgod #thankful #childhoodcancerawareness #VOD #cvvh #dialysis #keepfighting #fighton 1437863397677189093_48805821

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram Today is Day +7 after Michael's bone marrow transplant. I've been meaning to update everyone on how he is doing but honestly no parent ever wants to see their child like this. We knew that this was going to be a difficult process and prepared the best we all can, it doesn't make it any easier. We were told of the risks and the complications and always hoped that they wouldn't apply to Michael. He has handled chemo so well and is in remission but his little body is trying so hard to withstand all of the torture it's been through. His liver and kidneys are struggling right now, they are holding onto too much fluid. We will know in the next 12-24 hours if he will need help from dialysis to get them working on their own. He's very sick and hurts everywhere. Please continue to pray for him to recover quickly and for his new cells to start grafting to he can get through this difficult time.❤🙏🏼 #prayformichael #teammichaelbear #michaelbear #BMT#CHLA #ibelieve #allinalltogether #curechildhoodcancer 1431391302297267255_48805821

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram Michael is a true fighter, doing what he can to kick Cancers butt! 
Michael being in remission is the best news we could have, but his fight is not over. Going into his Bone Marrow Transplant he knows that he needs to be strong and as healthy as he can be. I love days like this when he has strength and energy. I love seeing his cockiness and confidence and seeing him laugh and smile. 
Today is day -7 of chemotherapy he's been getting chemo every 6 hours since yesterday at 4am. He will continue to get chemo until his transplant day January 12th (his new birthday they say). The chemo he is getting is stronger than any he has been given before. It's suppose to completely wipe out all of his cells and the transplant replaces them with the donors new healthy cells. This process takes weeks before the new cells start grafting. He will be closely monitored during and after this because his body is going to fight the unknown cells taking over. The Dr's have to tell us every possible side affect which is unbearable to hear. They say he will be in pain, Michael told us "it's ok because pain is temporary." He has been so incredibly brave and such an inspiration to me. There are times that he's upset and doesn't really know why, he said he's ok with the transplant and he's ok with getting sick but doesn't like not being in control of his emotions. Doesn't know why he gets short tempered or sad. We tell him it's all the medicine that he has been given and it's ok to be sad or mad and not know exactly what it is that caused it at that moment. Michael has always been the most caring and compassionate person I have ever met. He has a heart of gold and would do anything for anybody. I know most of you know that about him already.  This journey has been a rollercoaster of emotions for my entire family. I've shared a lot of his best days but there has been some difficult ones that I haven't shared. These next weeks are going to be difficult and I'm preparing myself for that. Although I know Michael will NOT give up and we have promised him that we NEVER will either.Please continue to pray for Michael that he recovers quickly and is home living his beautiful life he deserves. 1421357357733401223_48805821

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram ❤Today we head back to LA to finish Michael's fight! 🙏🏼He will be admitted tomorrow for his bone marrow transplant. Tonight was very difficult for Michael to say goodbye to Bella, he didn't want to leave her or leave at all. We are so grateful to his marrow donor to be doing such a selfless act to save his life. We have been preparing ourselves for this and have to believe and trust that his body accepts this new bone marrow. Michael will be in isolation for several weeks and will not be able to see his sister for at least a month or longer. Having him home for Christmas and the New Year meant so much, it really was the best medicine for all of us. This year has to be better than last! Michael is going to make it out stronger than ever and kick Cancer's butt for good! I have learned so much about myself and the true importance of family. Tomorrow is never guaranteed, as long as I can look back on yesterday and say I don't have any regrets that is a life well lived. In 2017 I will do my best to enjoy the smallest things in life, laugh more, listen more and enjoy every second with my babies. Time goes by way too fast, I don't want to waste a minute of it. Thank you all for your continued love and support, it has done more for my family than you know.

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram My world! ❤️🙏🏼❤️️ Today Michael has been through 10hrs of tests making sure his sweet little body can handle what he is going to endure next week. He will be getting a heavy cycle of chemo therapy and radiation to make sure all of the Leukemia cells are clear before transplanting his new healthy marrow. His body is going to go through shock and try to resist. Please pray that he will accept the new marrow and he remains strong as well as all of his organs. It's a miracle that he has done as well as he has and we are so grateful to the person that is his perfect match. ❤️ Bella has been incredibly brave and patient through everything. She is Michael's #1 fan and biggest cheerleader! Thank you all for your continued love, prayers and support! ❤️🙏🏼❤️#teammichaelbear #michaelbear #childhoodleukemia #bellaboo #chla #childrenshospitallosangeles #smilemore #bekind #allinalltogether #ibelieve #childhoodcancerawareness #curechildhoodcancer 1415634830281184009_48805821

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram Michael had a bone marrow biopsy yesterday and we did talk with his Dr's to hear the preliminary results of the biopsy. They told us that his Leukemia blasts looked like they could be 10% or less but couldn't confirm until today the exact amount. We weren't exactly pleased with that information because we knew this round of chemo was 10X stronger than his first round and was really hoping he would be in remission this time, which would have to be 5% or less. (Michael started chemo with 46% blasts and after the first round of chemo only came down to 37% blast in his marrow.) We knew he would have to go for a bone marrow transplant whether this round worked or not but also it is less likely of him relapsing after the transplant if he were in remission.  Today his Dr's came to talk about the results, they explained to us that for Michael to be in remission he would have to have 5% blasts or less and that what their tests detected were less than 0.01% which is the best possible outcome right now! They cannot detect any Leukemia cells. We could not be more happy right now!❤️❤️ Michael still has a long road ahead. His counts are very low right now, they will have to come up for him to be able to come home for Christmas. If he does get to go home we will have to admit him on the 26th to get him prepped for his transplant. He does have a donor and they are ready to get started quickly. His Dr's have told us countless times how miraculous it is that Michael is doing as well as he is and looks as good as he does. They said it has everything to do with the love and support he has been given. He is incredible and so brave! He still needs prayers and support for the next step of this journey, please continue to show him your love and Pray for a full recovery for our boy!

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram "I LOVED TODAY!" -Michael❤️Today was Michael's first time getting to play outside in almost 3 months. Today has been a great day! I think he was motivated by all the love and support he has been getting. ❤️ This morning Michael was visited by several players from the USC Football team along with head coach Clay Helton. One of the players Kenechi Udeze shared his success story of overcoming ALL Leukemia and is now in complete remission.  I think him sharing that with Michael gave him more hope. Coach Helton invited Michael to come watch on the sidelines at their first home game next season when he is cured, Michael can't wait! Thank you so much to the USC football team for making today so memorable for all of us, especially to Michael. He is definitely a fighter, just like the Trojan Warriors!! He also received hundreds of notes, cards and letters today! These all mean so much to him and put such a big smile on his face. Thank you everybody for letting him know how much you all support him. ❤️#teammichaelbear #michaelbear #fighter #USC #CHLA #ibelieve #belikemichael #bekind #allinalltogether #smilemore #childrenshospitallosangeles #curechildhoodcancer 1409714754415963226_48805821

Explore jaldrich504's Instagram Michael and Bella loved their care package from Bella's classroom today! Thank you everybody who contributed. We all had fun opening their gifts. I think Bella repeated herself 10 times to Michael saying "Mr. Newkirk said we can share the gift cards." 😜😉 lol! Many of you know how sweet and giving Michael is and of course he said he would share. Today some volunteers at the hospital came to his room with a cart full of gifts and asked if he would like to Christmas shop for his family. He went over without hesitation and picked gifts for all of us. He has even said he wants to give some of his toys he has received to the kids on his floor. This year hasn't been anything of what we are use to but if my 9 and 12 year old can find the happiness and joy in this terrible situation than I will do my very best to do the same. Thank you for all the love and support the messages and cards, your words of kindness and prayers mean so much to all of us. From all of us, thank you! We are so grateful!❤️❤️❤️#teammichaelbear #michaelbear #bellaboo #allinalltogether  #ibelieve #bekind #bestdayever #smilemore #CHLA #childrenshospitallosangeles #childhoodleukemia #curechildhoodcancer #siblinglove #norbertthedog #steelers #cavaliers #cavs 1406318472317987964_48805821

I love that Michael still has joy and happiness in his heart, I love that he isn't ever going to let Cancer change who he is, only let it strengthen the incredible young man he's becoming.
