New Treatment

As of Thursday,  we added an IV treatment to help begin strengthening the weaknesses in my bones. I’ll get it about once a month, in addition to the chemo shots/pills until we finish the induction phase of treatment now. 

Currently,  just awaiting getting this phase finished and aiming toward the stem cell transplant at Emory. I wish we had firm or even tentative dates, but all we can guess is around May. 

I was reflecting during the IV dose, that I’ll be through with the hospital stay around June and then “ready to hunt” (Dr’s words) by October. From June – October will seem like a long 4 months. I’m not sure if it’ll be steady feeling better throughout that time or “small increases” of it. Either way,  it’s a path I’ll walk. 

I guess the unknown can hold some mystery,  some unseen things I’ll experience and go through. Of course,  I just realized, I was diagnosed in January and the stem cell is now about 4 months out,  so I guess it might go at about the same pace as now- 4 months on each side of the stem cell transplant. 

I’ll sum it up with, I’m in God’s time and arms. He has this, I don’t. I’m content with that too, because He’s far more qualified for leading. Being along for the ride takes the pressure off of me. 

So… 8 months total given over to God. Not so bad of a trade off I guess.
