7/26/2007: Back for Another Round

Just two weeks since the latest round of chemotherapy, we returned to City of Hope (COH) for a "booster" round due to the not-so-unexpected return of the tumors in what have been the standard locations: under the right arm, the left rear jaw, and top of the right collar bone. The chemo session on Wednesday lasted about five hours.
.............................................................................
My medical team continues to monitor the situation since we all desire that there be the "least" evidence possible of the tumors when I am admitteed to COH for stem cell transplant August 13. The doctors call it control of the cancer. I am not sure if there will be another round of the chemo before August 13, but it is now evident that chemo alone is not the long-term solution.
.............................................................................
During the next two-plus weeks, we have a myriad of tests and procedures to be done in preparation for the SCT. Our nurse coordinator for the transplant assures us that all events are in line for the transplant, including the readiness of our donor who, as I have shared before, is a 24-year old male living outside of the USA.
