Chemo milestone!! And Hospital Stay

Quick update: last Tuesday Lukey completed the most brutal chemo round of this journey! It has been very tough on his body. He was visibly sick throughout and with transplant meds, it was an uphill task to keep the balance (chemo, prograf, etc). Anyway, we thank God for giving strength to Lukey to endure 6 rounds of "bad medicine." So, NO more chemo. YEAH!!! Praise God! And as long as his AFP stays low and he'll be in remission for 5 years, he will be considered medically "healed." We believe in Jesus name that he is HEALED already!! Thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray for him.

Last Tuesday night Lukey was running temp of 101.8 (ER if >99 for transplant and >100.4 for oncology). So, I took Lukey to ER at Fairfax. There were loads of people at 10pm at ER and the wait was excruciating. Anyway, we checked-in to the floor around 12.30am and Lukey was able to get some sleep, finally. We're still in the hospital, as the temp spiked up last night again and his ANC (white blood count) is low. We're praying to get home this weekend.

We'll update you soon. Hope you and your family are doing well. Blessings!
