...but no one ever said it would be.
We found out this morning that Reid has relapsed. Yes, the Hodgkin's is back and my heart is breaking. What next?
We don't know whether or not Reid was given the new Hodgkin's drug, Adcetris, in the clinical trial. If not, that will probably be the first treatment option. They didn't know yet since it takes a little time (paper work) to get it revealed. Meanwhile, another transplant is also an option, but this time using donor cells. They're going to go ahead and test Keith and Troy to see if one of them will be a match.
I just get so sad thinking about all that Reid has been through and yet 99% of the time he goes through it all smiling. I would not be so nice. Our goal is to get him well and that's where we are going to focus our attention.
We'll certainly be spending more time again down at MD Anderson, so the E-mail sitting in my mailbox might not get my attention anytime soon. One of these days I will get caught up, but between clinic visits and handling the things that must get done since Jim's death it will probably take longer than I originally anticipated.
I'm also busy trying to get the house cleaned for the house sitter too. I'll be back!
Thank you for your support and prayers.
