Praise God! The doctor rang this afternoon with good news! Jeremy's blast cell count has come down to 3-4% on an initial examination with the microscope, so technically he is in remission (under 5% is classified as remission). Jeremy will be admitted to hospital tomorrow for the start of another course of the same high dose chemo, which means a week of Mitozantrone (blue Smurf chemo!) and Cytarabine as an inpatient, followed by 2 weeks of Vincristine and Asparaginase as a clinic outpatient. The doctor also expects him to be admitted again to hospital during those 2 weeks for a fever. Hopefully, after his fever goes away and his counts come up again, he will have a bone marrow transplant.
To God be the glory for His wonderful healing hand upon Jeremy!
