Breaking Out.

Posted: April 18, 2019 in Postcards from Cancerland.

We are home!!

We were  released from the hospital this afternoon.
The Doctor decided we couldn’t do anything in the hospital that we couldn’t do at our house, and the food is better.
We didn’t argue.
It’s good to be home.
My oncologist and the team from Duke have put together a plan for my next step.
We start a new chemo treatment Monday with some aggressive drugs that will require constant hydration. The secret weapon is a drug used for extreme lymphoma and leukemia. I will bring home a lovely infusion pump so drugs will be pumping into me 24 hours a day. There is the possibility of some pretty dangerous side effects.
This HAS to work in order for us to go to Duke.
This is the last resort…that’s the report.
We have cried a lot today.
We have cried out a lot.
We are crying out for a miracle.
We are crying out for resurrection.
It’s time.
We want something to happen that no human can do.
That would be cool.
