Jake update 7/12/10

Jake is out of surgery and just had a bowl of Fruit Loops.  We are waiting for the chemo team to come and tell us what our life is going to be like for the next year.

Addendum:  If they don't find any cancer in the bone marrow, the regimen will be an overnight stay every 3rd week.  The other weeks it will only take about an hour and he can come home.  This will be for the first 13 weeks, then they will reevaluate to see if the lymph nodes are shrinking or not.  The second 15 weeks will have the same overnight stays, but he will get to skip a couple weeks and not have to come up to PCMC at all.  Then reevaluation, then another 15 week course. 

The radiation therapy will start on week 4.  Most likely he will have to drive up every day for treatment every day, Monday through Friday.  We will find out more about this on Thursday.

They take really good care of Jake here.  I'm sure they are giving him the best care available.
