David has primary plasma cell leukemia. Over 40% of his white blood cells are cancerous. He is very anemic. The doctor said they bone in his hip has been significantly impacted. They are keeping him seven days and are starting a seven chemo drug regimen in the morning. No more treatment for head and neck. The doctor said he wouldn't live long enough to complete that treatment. The are going to try two seven day cycles three weeks apart and see if they can get him to remission over a 6 cycle. The doctor said if he doesn't respond after 2 cycles he most likely won't. It appears I won't have my husband much longer.
