Oct. 29 Update

30 Oct

Finished my 4th round of R-Epoc last week.  Still feeling the effects now but it will start getting better throughout this week.

Lara and I saw the Transplant specialist today.  He gave us a timeline that will lead up to the transplant.  In two weeks, I will have another round of chemo treatment.  This will be a different treatment and will not require a hospital stay…..HALLELUJAH!  I will then have another round of that treatment three weeks from then.  The goal of these treatments is still to get the disease under control enough so that the transplant has the best opportunity to be effective.
The transplant is scheduled to take place beginning the first week of January….HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Please pray that these treatments will be effective and that the side effects will be minimal.  Thank you for all of your support, thoughts, and prayers.
