New Game Plan

Dr. Agura laid out a projected new game plan today for Steven.

Through April 21 - In hospital through this date to recover from this round of chemo.
May 3 - Return to hospital to have a final round of chemo to prepare for transplant. He will receive Fludarabine, Busulfan and ATG. No radiation is planned at this time.
May 8/9 - Bone Marrow Transplant

If all goes as planned, it looks like he will have a ten day break at home.

As miserable as Steve is at the moment, the staff says he is right where they would expect he should be at this stage of this chemo. The nurses cheerfully told us about all the people on the floor who were worse off, with the gory details. The night tech for the week-end is a good ole gal from Odessa, so funny she actually made Steve laugh tonight. Hope she comes back every night. It was good to hear.

Hope the supper went well tonight. Happy thoughts and good to hear they've kind of set a date for transplant and you may have a back up donor. Craig didn't have that presented as an option. Hugs, Alice

Laughter is such a good thing. I hope you get to share some more of it. Good to have a plan for the next few months too. Best Wishes!
