An update on my friend in Vermont who has been fighting cancer for many months now.
“Another month, another trip to Dana Farber in the books. All of my blood readings were good this month, except my EOS reading, which has climbed tp 33%! Should be below 6%. Talked the doctor about it and he says it could be a number of things, one of which is early signs of graft vs host disease, which is where my body rejects the transplant. He is going to keep me on the anti rejection meds for another month and then we will revisit the numbers on my next blood draw. On a better note, I started my first round of getting my childhood immunizations. One step closer to getting back to a normal life. Still shooting for an October date for releasing me entirely from isolation.”
A response from his wife.
“Hey fb friends. Here is Guy’s update from his doctors visit in Boston today.
My personal feeling is that his eos number is high due to allergies because he isn’t showing any signs of graft verses host. So will have to see if his eos number drops once we get a frost”
These friends are both great examples of never giving up. I know they will continue to be strong and fight for the right to live what they believe is their normal life. Life is very precious so enjoy every moment. And just like my Vermont friends, when faced with fighting cancer (or any health issues) Never, Ever, Quit.
