First of all, thank you peas so much for your well wishes and prayers.
The biopsy on Tuesday went well, they are typically pretty easy for me.

We met with our transplant dr today. Two weeks ago I was at 10% cancer cells, yesterday's test showed I'm at 60% cancer cells. They are very concerned that it grew so much in 2 weeks. This obviously explains why I've been feeling so terrible.

One of the previous options was to do a radiation trial called total marrow irradiation - similar to the link ladybugz posted on the other thread. It was started by treating prostrate cancer, but they are using it in trials for leukemia. I now have to many cancer cells to do that trial, so we have to go with some really intense chemo first.

Before we can start chemo, they need to finalize the analysis of the cancer. It's always been treated as AML, but they are seeing more and more ALL characteristics.

In the meantime, I have to be in the hospital - they made me come right over. I've been having fevers and not eating. Hopefully tomorrow the analysis will come in and they will decide exactly which type of chemo to give me. Its going to be very strong and very difficult for me. They told me after the last round they wouldn't do anymore because I'd basically had as much chemo as a body can take. But I guess, I get to get more. We really don't have any other options; we have to get the cancer knocked down as much as we can if there is any chance of the transplant working.

I already miss by baby girl. I didn't get to tell her good bye and now I can't see her until this weekend.

You hug and kiss that baby girl and then you gear up to kick ass.

I'm sorry to hear that you must do more chemo, but you *CAN* do this. You are strong and you can beat this awful illness. I will be praying for you.

I hope that you and/or someone close to you can keep the Peas updated on your progress (maybe the hospital has wi-fi?).

Sometimes I read posts on here and I don't have the words to accurately describe what it is that I want to say. Normally when this happens, I just click out of the thread without leaving a reply. This is one of those threads.

It seems foolish on my part to even consider that anything I could type could possibly even put a dent in what I'm sure you're feeling right now. Still, I feel compelled to respond because my heart is breaking for you and your family right now.

I wish you and your family hope, strength, peace, and the determination needed to win this battle. Please keep us updated if you're able, and remember that the Peas are pulling for you from all over the globe!

I can not believe you have to endure this. It is so wrong. So unfair. You need to be home with your family.

If prayers could kick cancers ass out of your body, the amount of love and prayer here will do it!!

Never forget how amazing you are!!!!

I am so sorry. I can just imagine how scared, angry and worried you are. But you have proven how strong you are and you will win this battle. You will. There are so many people praying for you and pulling for you. That is a lot of power coming your way.

Would you mind giving us your first name so that we can use that in our prayers? God probably knows you as justusscrapper too, but we need to cover all bases. You are an important member of the Pea Pod and we need you to overcome this set back and come back full force. We will keep the door open for you. (((HUG))) (((HUG))) (((HUG)))

my.unquiet.mind gave words to my feelings with great eloquence.

But I have one thing to say, and it may be very unpopular.

You don't have to do the chemo just because the drs say so. Be sure that if you go that route, you know the realities, understand the odds, and that it is your decision. Not anyone else's.

My heart aches for you and your family; this is just so grossly unfair.
