I haven't been able to check E-mail lately, but might get a little time this weekend...we'll see. I'll try and post updates here as often as I can. We're busy all day and in the evenings I'm usually too tired to consider getting online.
They weren't able to get all the new floors down, so the hallway and computer room will have to wait. The rest did get done, but taking up the brick kitchen floor made a mess. It was far dustier than the slab work had been. They had to grind to get some of it up and everything in the front of the house was covered in a fine brown dust. I ended up sending Reid to a motel because we didn't think he should be breathing all that dust in right now. Troy and Debbie came over on Sunday and helped me clean and dust. We worked for hours, but the place is so much better now. Just in time for Keith to arrive from Austin on Monday. Thank goodness things were somewhat organized by then.
Reid's latest scan results were good! The mass continues to get smaller and things are moving forward as far as the stem cell transplant goes. Reid and Keith have been spending time down at MD Anderson undergoing all the remaining testing. We spent all day Tuesday down there and today Keith is there for a half day and Reid another whole day. I did not go today. Reid assured me he'd be OK and he's feeling pretty good considering he had another infusion on Tuesday.
I've just been exhausted and Friday morning I will be going early with Reid since he's scheduled to have general anesthesia for the CVC. That was his one request. He wanted general anesthesia this time since they had trouble inserting it the last time and it was quite painful.
So far all the test results they've gotten back on Reid and Keith are good. Unless we hear otherwise I'm still expecting Reid to be admitted to the hospital sometime before Christmas.
I need to get my butt in gear now and get a few things done around here today. I only have so much energy and there's so much to do. There's just so much going on at one time.
Thank you for your prayers.
Update: Just heard from Keith. He's been approved as a donor and will begin the injections to produce more stem cells on Saturday. Hopefully, within a week they'll be able to harvest the stem cells. Also, waiting on the last of Reid's tests, but assuming they're OK at this point.
