Hi Guys I haven't been posting on a regular basis but I have been reading. I owe an apology to Debrajo and Jazzy for not responding to their private messages. My daughter was dx last november with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and was on a roller coaster out of this world treatment. Ended up in ICU with infection and fever that was not going. Treatments continue and hospital and hospital and fevers and fevers.
Anyway, as of this week the Doctor did a bone marrow biopsy and told us that the cancer cells has returned full force. Her blood counts are dangerously low and as now all the residents and social workers literally told us that this is it and in so few words that my daughter is dying. Her primary onc told us that there are options and that there is no guarantee even after having more chemo (clorfarabine)the cancer is going to come back and it is best that she remain stabled and comfortable. My daughter has decided to continue with the Chemo and I am really hoping that she pulls through this. She said to me if she dosen't do the chemo what will she do just go home and wait to die? So this I where we are. It is not an easy journey watching you 40 year old daughter so sick, I was indicating to her not to take the chemo but she wants to go for it. Please let me know what your thoughts are. Even though the Docs are telling her that there is not much hope, she keeps insisting that she is not dying. Love to all and good health.
