Toward the end of January Errol was diagnosed with Myeloma, bone marrow cancer. They told us it was not curable but very treatable. So he started on his cancer journey!  The first hurdle was that his kidneys were not functioning properly and they begin to treat for that.  His cancer treatment was to consist of a combination of pills and an injection every Friday. Last Friday, Feb 25, he had his second treatment and seemed to be doing fine so on Saturday we headed over to the coast to just relax for a few days!  Monday morning he was not feeling so great and appeared to have a fever.  After taking his temperature and consulting with Oncology we headed to the ER in Newport ( which we could see from our motel)! He wasn’t there long when things got bad, he ended up on a breathing tube to help let his body relax and heal. They are treating him for pneumonia, infection in his blood, kidney failure and messed up electrolytes plus I'm not sure what else they told me.
