Journal entry by Minda Albright

Sorry I have not posted an update in long time.   Dad is doing great as of right now there is 1 small indicator on his blood work his cancer is still there but not enough that they can track it.  So the Bone Marrow transplant did what is was suppose to do.  He is in physical therapy to start to get his strength back that he lost during the transplant process. 

He only has to see his Cancer Dr in Grand Junction every 3 months but goes into the office for monthly blood work and to get his bone strengthening medicine.  He has started his immunization again starting clear back from when he was a baby do to the High dose chemo they gave him for his transplant it wiped out all immunization he had previously received.

He is still on his chemo pill that he takes 21 days on a 7 days off just at a lower does than before.  He will be on this for the rest of his life or until the cancer becomes more prevalent in his blood.  Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.
