Day -4

Six down and two more chemos to go.... Eric is coping extremely well with both the Fludarabine and Busulfan chemo drugs. Busulfan is definitely harder and has several side effects for which he is taking additional medications. By the time he takes the anti-nausea meds, the anti-seizure meds, pills to protect his liver and another to protect his kidneys (AND the chemo), he just feels kinda blah....

By Tuesday the days will get longer. As chemo completes, he will have plasmapharesis to help prepare his system for his donor marrow (the plan is to remove his A antibodies as the donor is an A- blood type)He will also start ATG to help prevent or lessen GVHD (Graft vs Host Disease).

As always, positive thoughts and prayers most welcome.

Sounds like he's doing really well.......hope this continues - don't shake him too much, he'll rattle with all those meds he's taking!

Continuing to think of you both.........Vx
