May 13th - The Dr.'s Protocol

Mom & Dad met with the nurse, dietitian, and social worker to go over what happens during the transplant.  We also had a family conference with Dr. Asch to discuss the protocol for the transplant.  Dr. Asch said that she went to the national data base to find someone else who had the exact same Leukemia that Pops has so that she could compare the protocol for the treatment for him and there is no one who has survived to get a transplant.  Whoa!  Very humbling.  So basically Dr. Asch & Dr. Petersen had to sit down and design the protocol themselves.  Dad is the first person to have this type of chemo treatment that they designed.  The Dr.'s also said that if he is alive in 3 years they want to write a case study on him because no one with his type of Leukemia has ever made it this far.  Another miracle :)

  1. Thankyou for the updates, there is a mission reunion with Pres & Sis Price that I cannot attend unfortunately living in Australia, but would've been so great to give both he & sister price a big hug. But this blog has been wonderful with updates on Presidents health. He and your family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Alofa atu Peresitene xo Sister Reupena
