Nora had her first two doses of radiation today. She did great. She is nauseous and tired but was a champ. She stood perfectly still and it went smoothly. Last time I gave you an update, she had two donors to choose from… but in the meantime a new donor — who is a better match, who can donate marrow, is younger, and can donate earlier — was found. 🙂
She has nine more trips to radiation in the next three days, then she gets a day off. Sunday and Monday are chemo days, Tuesday she starts cyclosporine and her transplant is Thursday. Which will be followed by methotrexate and filgrastim the next two weeks. Then we wait.
Our lives are topsy-turvy right now and we really appreciate all the prayers. Thank you for being such wonderful kind caring friends and family.
