Also aiding in this decision, Cedar's suggestion to change my current chemotherapy treatment plan to a more rigorous and aggressive pediatric treatment. Pediatric sounded super odd to me at first considering I'm twenty-six. They explained that contrary to my belief that it would be a low dosage, it in fact would be more aggressive because children can apparently handle it better. They believe this new regiment will put me into remission just after this next round. Now, I understand how important this "ace in the sleeve" is. So, Kristin (my sister) is still being tested as a bone marrow match and we can cross that bridge if I do not respond well to this new treatment plan.
I am incredibly anxious to begin the second round of chemotherapy. I have full confidence in this team of doctors, and I am looking forward to putting this all in the past!
I love you guys all so much and want to thank you again for the support and positive vibes.The best part about going to LA is the drive home. How could you not love Santa Barbara?!
Love Love sooooooo much Love,
