My daughter’s was married on July 15th. Paul traveled from Texas to Colorado to attend the ceremony (and to see his daughter’s family in Greeley). He was very tired from having made the trip, but he did make it!
The first round of chemotherapy for the incipient acute myeloid leukemia seems to have had no effect. Paul underwent another 5 days of chemo the week after the wedding. The doctors won’t biopsy the bone marrow for another month, so we won’t know until then whether the second round was successful. He will need to go through a third round of chemo in about a month, after which a decision may be made as to whether he will be able to have another stem cell transplant.
Our whole family remains optimistic, but the waiting periods can be frustrating.
