Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Jeremy was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). What started out as a fairly easy treatment plan-as easy as Chemotherapy can be- has turned into more than expected. Jeremy started his first round of chemotherapy early December 2016, the treatment cycle was 3 days chemotherapy, 1 day immune booster. However after the first 3 days of chemotherapy and one day of immune booster, his white blood cell count plummeted. The doctor ordered 3 more days of fluids and antibiotic treatments. Jeremy was feeling as well as can be expected, but after a few half days back at work, he developed a fever. The fever landed him in the hospital where he still is today. For those of you that don't know Jeremy well, I will give you a little back ground. He is a Montana native, grew up split between the Mission Valley with his dad and the Bitteroot with his mom. He graduated from Polson High school. He has spent all of his adult life working on cars. He became a Senior Master Subaru Technician and was very proud of that accomplishment. He is of course, most proud of his 4 children. Nate is attending University of Montana in his third year. Isaiah recently graduated high school and will be attending University of Montana in the fall. Lily and Isobel are juniors at Bigfork High school. This diagnosis has caused stresses that were hard to imagine when you try and prepare yourself for battle. His doctor limited him from working in the shop, due to the chemical exposure, and also limited his hours at work. Then there is the complications and fever. Today marks day 8 of the hospital stay, with at least a week to go. We are hoping to use this site to share updates and treatments with loved ones near and far, Please leave a note, send prayers and good thoughts, and if you are able, please consider making a donation to Jeremy's account. //www.gofundme.com/mg-jeremys-medical-fund Thank you for visiting.
