Today is “Day 37″ being in the hospital and it looks like the doc has given me the OK to go home. The plan is to discharge me tomorrow and return again some time this week for a bone marrow biopsy- to check to make sure we killed off all the leukemia cells. Hopefully the results come back negative for anything.
I also wanted to share with everyone an article/blog my good friend Tea Nguyen wrote a few weeks ago which can be found HERE. The article was written in recognition of Bone Marrow Month. Tea and her Fiancee, Paul (one of my best friends) sent me a t-shirt they were selling for their oncology club to raise money for children with cancer to go to camp. It is hard to see in the picture, but it reads “Battling cancer…a war worth fighting”.
During the month of June, the National Marrow Donor Program is having a “Marrowthon” where they will waive all fees for potential marrow donors. We plan to work with a few other patients searching for a matching donor to have a weekend of simultaneous bone marrow drives throughout the United States.
