Over the last month he has also developed a fungal infection in his throat or back of the tongue which will require surgery tomorrow morning. We thought it was the return of mucositis, but it isn't. It has been and will be rugged to go through, but it could have been worse. After the surgery, they will begin chemotherapy which hopefully will be effective in bringing the AML into remission. It is expected that he will be a month in the hospital, have a break for a week or so, then return for the transplant, another month inpatient, and if all goes well, have another 2 - 3 months receiving outpatient care here. Just pray that he can have all the strength he needs to fight the fight of his life.
Brian up and decided to do some squats today, monitor wires tucked in and IV lines dangling.
I think it freaked the nurse a little when the heart rate shot up.
He misses everybody so much. We hear about so many of you still praying for Brian. Thank you so much for your continued prayers for Brian!!!
He has a cousin, Johnny Graham, same age, who lives in the area who helped us when we arrived Monday night and has lifted Brian's spirits so much! Here Brian has escaped the hospital bed and is relaxing while Johnny looks up a good movie to watch on Tuesday. The address for Brian is below the picture.
