This is the nature of leukemia. It lurks and it waits and it jumps in at any sign of vulnerability. Strong chemo may only wipe out half the clones, and you might need to throw more toxins at it. My bone marrow biopsy shows I still have a little leukemia lurking, but it must all be destroyed. To that end I re-enter the hospital on Tuesday June 9 where I will try a new cocktail. The good news is, I have three days to party!
The fungal infection in my lungs is responding to the drugs, so that's good. This is difficult to treat, so at least we're making progress on that front.
We had a family dinner last night--just pizza, just perfect. We have lots to celebrate this weekend. Then it's back in the slammer.
