Good News from Hambone

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Hambone, Oct 28, 2005.


  1. We got word today that the first round of chemotherapy has done it's job and my wife is now free of leukemia. It might be too early to say "remission" since she still will have to undergo another round of chemo later but as of now, there is no sign of the AML she had before. She's still not out of the hospital after 2 weeks but all we've got to do is get 24 hours without a low grade fever and she can get released to come home. She really can't wait. After that, it's daily outpatient checkups until she's strong enough to go in for the next round.

    Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. No doubt they were the catalyst for this remarkable news.

    AWESOME!!! Man, that's great news! I hope she gets back to feeling "normal" again real soon. I know how chemo can suck your energy away, my mom and stepmom have both had it. Seems to be working for my stepmom, but she's a workaholic, and my dad is constantly nagging her to slow down. Didn't work for my mom, though... :bawl: ...they caught hers too late. But I'm truly hopeful for you and your wife that this next round will put it behind you for good!
     
  5. That's very good news, my best wishes are with you and your family.

    Hammy, you and I don't see eye to eye on most things apparently, but I think all of us see eye to eye when we wish your wife the best and offer up prayers for her continued recovery.
