last pet scan

as I posted I'm at city of hope now, unfortunately I'm back in the hospital because I got a little sick and all my blood counts were really low. They have been giving me transfusion for the last couple of days and my body has excepted it with no problems. So starting of from a couple months ago, My kaiser doctor had finished up pretty much all the chemo she could give me so they transfered me here to city of hope, I'm so very happy to be here, there a very high ranked cancer hospital. When I got here they ran a new pet scan to see what cancer was alive, they told me that the cancer is gone from my lungs and my lymph nods and my glands. so now were going threw a very hard chemo because my liver hasn't healed enough to do surgery. But it looks like this chemo will do a good job and then I'll do a stem cell transplant and if my brothers blood is a perfect match I should have minimum complications. The transplant isn't very easy I'll be hospitalized for at least 4 to 6 weeks. so the plan is this last chemo then stem cell transplant then surgery which i might be going to the best surgeon for my cancer in our nation, he is located at sloan-kettering in New York. then after they remove all the tumors we will do a whole abdominal radiation. Then its hopefully cancer free. I've been doing good untill yesteday but so far it ust looks like I got a light infection and I should be going home tomorrow. well I'm getting tiered so I'll write back shortly thanks for all the prayers and love, love you all Sky.

Oh babe, I am sorry you are back in the hospital, but if you have an infection that is a good place to be so they can take care of you. I hope you get to go home tomorrow and heal well. Thinking of you everyday and keeping good thoughts. I hope the Trevor's blood is a perfect match, so you will have minimum complications when it comes time for all of that. Thinking of you, love you and miss you so much!
