Currently receiving my first dose of the third cycle of nelarabine I will be getting. Since weve moved ahead with the transplant, we’ve decided to do more chemo to keep the leukemeia at bay. Dr. Shuh’s thinking is that chemo in the interim as we wait for a transplant is not necessarily a bad idea and might have an additional preventative effect, and I am on board. Thank you, Ontario taxpayers.
The Rexall OneWalk was over the weekend, and my mom fielded a team of 6 dedicated moms and they all walked 25 km and collectively raised 45,000 dollars for PMH. Thank you to everyone who gave, the day was a huge success!
The tentative date for admission for my transplant is October 8th. As long as the donor can cooperate (which it sounds like), Ill be getting chemo and also radiation leading up to the beginning of October. Then its a hospital stay of 3-4 weeks in isolation (visitors allowed at times).
