Update on the Hubster

I just realized that I haven't updated you all on CarGuy's continuing battle with leukemia. I'm feeling a little pooped so this probably won't be too witty or entertaining but here's the scoop. He's doing pretty good. He finished up his 3rd chemo this week bringing him 1/2 way through his planned treatments before his bone marrow transplant. We're still waiting to find out if his brother or sister were a match. He has one more brother but he refuses to get tested until the others are ruled out. In a way I sort of hope he doesn't match. He holds a grudge against CarGuy and I would be terrified that he would be the match and then change his mind at the last minute. It makes me really sad that someone could hate someone else so much that they are willing to let them die. I try not to think about it too much or else I get really depressed....so...moving on...

CarGuy had a blood transfusion today -- I was with him and it was kinda creepy. It was amazing though that I could see the color returning to his face as the transfusion happened. The transfusion center was great. The rooms were pretty much private and you had a TV in your room. I wish the cancer center had that. Although I'm getting a lot of reading and cross stitch done during chemo since I'm not being hypnotized by the TV.

I'm still trying to get CarGuy to let me take a pic of him -- he's got this cute little headful of chicken fur. I love to run my hand over it! I don't think he likes it as much as I do.

Still praying for you guys.

Yeah I've been trying to get some pictures of Richard. he still has all his hair but the rash is really bad and he just isn't gonna let me snap any photos.

thanks for sharing. I will continue to pray and that his other siblings will be a match so you don't have to worry about the 3rd. Hugs from afar!

Still praying for him...and you!
There is always one in every family. I'll pray that one of the other two are a match.
I love cross-stitch...haven't done it in years.

Still praying...

Maybe... (totally being Pollyanna here) this whole transplant thing will be a way to bring the brothers together?

Thanks for the update. I've been wondering about how he's doing. You are still in my prayers. I'll be focusing on the transplant specifically in addition to peace :)

Aubrey said...

I think about you often. You are both in my prayers! I'll be sure that tonight I add that there is a match.

*hugs*

BTW, glad the pen in the baby butt cheeks could make you laugh, even if just for a moment!

Thanks for the update! I am keeping you and CG in my prayers. I can totally relate about the brother. I hope the others are a match.
