WOHOOO!!! YEs, REGINAS TUMORs ARE SHRINKING. A LOT.
Today Dr Dhall showed me all her scans since may, and WOW. White matter that was full of tumor cells ( those 39 something tumors) is almost gone. Only little more is left. There are still few tumors left in her brain, but doctors are getting more and more exited about cure and bone marrow transplant.
We are starting chemo on friday. do not ask why, because you know why... ;)
BUT 14-17 days after chemo Regina needs Double Hickman line , her stem cells needs to be harvested ( first Dr Dhall is checking with St jude, if they have saved some). Dr Dhall told me that Dr gajjar will NOT be very exited to hear about ANOTHER bone marrow transplant... but oh well... ....
Anyway. IF they can not harvest Reginas Stem cells, THEN we have to look into bone marrow Registry to find a mach... That part is not fun...
So all of you find your local bone marrow place and get yourself into system... Start saving lives.
ALSO.. After this round we are done with inpatient chemo and start oral chemo and outpatient chemo and have to have at least 2-3 stem cell transplant rounds.... BUT again,, nothing is 100% sure Things can change, plans can change, new drugs may POP UP, miracle is allready happening so there you go..... So NOW I am starting to let Regina plan her Halloween and christmas etc... OH WOW... These upcoming 3 months sound very exhausting .. Not sure how everything will go, but we are very , very exited about it!
