1) Hello everyone,
My dad had a pretty bad night last night due to feeling sick and nauseous from the chemotherapy. They are giving him meds to help with that now and it is working...he is feeling better. But, he did not get much sleep and, because of the fact that his white blood cells are so low, this is a concern...he is more susceptible to getting sick, and we really do not want him to get any infections, etc. So please pray that he will have a better night tonight and that he will get some rest. He will not be able to take any of your calls at this time, but cards or emails are good :) . Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes.
2) Thank you soooo much for your prayers...the chemotherapy treatment is working. The "blast" cells are down from 80% to 5%. If they stay at this level for 14 days and we find a bone marrow match for him, my dad will be sent to California to the City of Hope to have the transplant done.Thanks again for all of your prayers!
