[Where I've Been]. . .

There's this place in Salt Lake City. 
It's called Primary Children's Medical Center.
My boy has been here since last Thursday (the FRY words post was actually written and set to post way before this all happened) with a diganosis of AML which is a form of leukemia.

It's been a super crazy tough path for the past 6 days.
I really hate it.

I'm going to be in and out on here.  I hope you'll stick with me.
My boy comes first.

If you're the praying type, please add prayers for successful treatment with minimal side effects. 
Tonight we're dealing with not only a new picc line (the 2nd because the first had to be removed because of blood clots), but also a fever that is going up instead of down.  It's a dangerous thing when your white blood cells are currently at near zero because of chemotherapy. 

I'll be starting a blog to record our journey.
The site will be .
We have a facebook page!/teamkenton if you'd like to come say hi and be up to date with the latest happenings.

I appreciate each of you being willing to give me the time we need to get this all sorted out and moving in the right direction.  I'll see you soon. . .
