He had yet another bone marrow aspiration yesterday and the results will be back tomorrow.....then we will know if he is in remission. On Monday, they extracted the stem cells from his brother and next week he will be hospitalized to go through with the transplant. They will give him what they call the "blue flu" which essentially wipes out his entire immune system. Then they give him the bone marrow/stem cells intravenously. He will then be in the hospital in isolation for a month as without any immune system...he could virtually get any kind of sickness or disease. He will go through with the transplant whether he IS or is NOT in remission. If he is NOT in remission, his chances are less than 30% he will survive. If he is in remission, his chances are very good! But even if he is not in remission, a <30% chance is still better than his chances would be if he did not go through with the transplant. Please keep him in your prayers. He is a very kind and giving person and has helped so many in his lifetime. Now I just home that prayers can help him.
