Hi everyone - obviously it's been a while since I have posted anything - the last month or so has been a big blur. This round of chemo was much harder to go through and I had many more side effects to deal with. However, it's all worth it since this round worked. I'm still extremely tired and having some nausea - I'm not feeling as good as I did after the first round, but again this round worked so I can deal with it. The most frustrating thing is that most foods just don't taste like they should - I'm sure anyone who has had chemo before can relate to this. Fruit and clam chowder seem to be the exception - very odd.
I have an appointment with Dr. Moore on Thursday to have another bone marrow biopsy to make sure the Leukemia hasn't returned. We will also probably be planning a "consolidation" treatment for sometime in the next week or two. This is basically a shorter chemo treatment that is used to keep my body in remission. It should only require a 3-4 day hospital stay unless I have any fevers. If all goes well the bone marrow transplant should take place in 6-10 weeks. So that is the plan for now.
Thanks for all of your prayers, cards, emails, comments, ect.,
