David still has his hip replacement scheduled for March 7, bu after seeing the hematologist today we found out they are suspending treatment of his plasma cell leukemia so that they can go back and finish his head and neck cancer treatments. He has 19 radiation treatments and they will discuss whether to complete the chemotherapy (Cisplatin). They are hoping to prove they cured the head and neck cancer so they can petition for the bone marrow transplant. David is not really excited abothe recovering from hip replacement and radiation to the neck concurrently, but the doctor doesn't think we have enough time to wait. Once his cancer is out of remission the board wouldn't approve for the BMT. So we get ready for battle again. Oh btw it looks like we will most likely lose the house. I haven't put that in my caring bridge page yet. I know we are going to have to face that reality, but for now I don't want to overwhelm everyone.
