Re: my DHs lymphoma

He was diagnosed last summer. He underwent 6 rounds of chemo with no change in the cancer. They decided to try another chemo. He just finished it up and had another PET scan...again NO change!!!

They plan to admit him into the hospital in the next couple of days to do yet another type of chemo. This one will require him to be in the hospital for at least a week. They plan to eventually do a stem cell transplant on him using his brothers stem cells , but they really need to shrink the mass first. If they cannot, the chances of the transplant being successful are slim.

PLEASE pray for him, us, our small children that this chemo works!! We need some light at the end of this darkening tunnel we have been going down

So sorry Holly. I will pray for you, your DH and your family. t sounds like this new chemo is going to be more intense, so it may be the one that works. I know it must be hard to do when you are feeling so discouraged, but try to remain hopeful. (((HUG)))

Holly, you and your DH have been on my daily prayer list. I am sorry to hear the news but all hope is not lost. I'll continue to keep both of you and your family in my prayers, praying that the new chemo will shrink the cancer and that future treatments will be successful.

Yes, of course, prayers that they will shrink the tumor and he has a successful stem cell transplant. I am so sorry your family is suffering through this. Many hugs to you.
