Two down...One to Go..

Yesterday was round two of the immune suppressant therapy treatments. Dave had an infusion of chemotherapy that lasted from 9 AM until 5:30 PM! Even though it was a loooongg day, he did great! Just a little tired, but no real bad side-effects. Not even nausea.

Being the stubborn man he is (hint...I was ticked), he insisted on driving home in the lovely LA rush-hour traffic. I must have asked him 20 times how he felt, nag that I am! (Note to self: hide blackberry AND car keys after surgery!)

So....we are down to one more IVIG antibody treatment before the final blood test to determine how well this transplant will take. I found out yesterday that the doctor who is treating Dave for anti-rejection, Dr. Stanley Jordin, is the on who treated George Lopez a few years ago. He has this amazing track record, and is really well known throughout the medical industry~ he even did a spot on Oprah!

Next on the agenda is the Pre-Op scheduled for two weeks from now, followed the next day by the last IVIG treatment.

Please continue those prayers, that the cross match between Dave and his donor change for the better. Thanks so much!
