    Hey guys. I transferred to AML last week after wbc climbed to 17…positive peripheral smear…did bone marrow and showed 26% blasts…finishing up my first “round” of chemo…did real well. NO NAUSEA!!! just battling a rash from a new med….slight fever off and on in the 99’s. Been here 8 days and should go home in am if no infection…wbc down to 2.5 but hgb up to 10 after transfusion and platlets were down to 7 but had transfusion (second one since Ive been here) and up to 58….family and friends running big bone marrow drive….busy doing fund raising….while in the meantime University hospital has found 4 donors 6/6…Will receive last donors blood by end of month…working on two specimens there now trying to match 10/10. Keep fingers crossed…..

    Hi Pam,

    Sounds like things are going as well as can be…you keep hanging in there — the prospects look good. Sounds like you have a lot of great friends and family.

    Crossing fingers,

    Greg

    Pam, Sure am glad the chemo was easier then you were afraid it would be. Hope your good luck holds and that you are on you way to better days with a transplant and hope for cure!

    Pam,

    We hope and pray for the best results and NO problems after.

    I have an initial assessment coming up at the Hutch next week, any suggestions as to questions to ask?
