20th Day of Induction
Yesterday’s spinal tap results have come back and there is still leukemia in Jesse’s spinal fluid. This is the third time in a row it’s come back 1%.
The doctors feel his body has built up a resistance to the spinal injected Methotrexate and they would like to add the chemo AraC to the combination this Friday. Well, that brings up a concern…
It was the Methotrexate & AraC that was given back at the end of January that caused the renal failure, chemo toxicity and neurological damage. The only reason we are considering it is because it’s a small dose and the Methotrexate they have been using is not enough alone.
We have until tomorrow to decide.
