21 May 2009

The doctor telephoned today and told us that Jeremy still has numerous blast cells in his bone marrow, that he is considered as high risk, and that he will need a bone marrow transplant in a few months' time. We were very sad to hear this, especially since Jeremy has been so happy and active - he seems so "normal" and "healthy" that sometimes we had even forgotten that he has leukaemia. He will still be admitted to hospital on Monday for a week or so, but he will be given much more potent chemo drugs to try to reduce the number of blast cells. We will know more about his treatment regime on Monday.
