I got the good news late yesterday afternoon! He only has 3% blast cells and anything 5% or below is considered remission. Also, his brother's stem cells (which they harvested this past Monday) is a 14 point match. At first my heart dropped....then I found out it's a 14 out of 14....so basically a 100% match. Of course he still has a long road ahead of him. He will be put in the hospital on Tuesday for the transplant. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. During the time when he has no immune system, any sickness or illness he might contract could be fatal. But he is at least halfway to being cured. I don't think I've stopped smiling since I heard the news. He will need a lot of care even after his month of isolation in the hospital and he and his wife are getting an apartment less than 4 miles from the hospital since it's required you be no more than 10 minutes from the hospital after you are released....for at least 4 months. They won't even do a transplant if you live alone and have no care giver. But he knows we will all do what is needed....and more. His wife will take a leave of absence from work and when she needs a break on the weekend, I'll keep the kids for the weekend while my daughter takes over for a bit. And yes....I'll be on the short list of people allowed to visit him while he's in the hospital in isolation. And since I work at the hospital...it makes it real convenient for me. Even though he and I divorced when my daughter was only 3 (she is now almost 38), we have remained close. He will be up here today to have his port line removed and I'm having lunch with him. I told him I wanted to see him again before he is admitted on Tuesday. I want to thank you all so much for your prayers and again ask that you continue them.
