Building under treatment
« on: April 10, 2020, 06:03:24 PM »
Today, Ava my daughter was down....All she could see is months of torture for her Cancer treatment, not being able to finish school.  Now a while ago I picked up one of Arthur Deklabs little wobbler casting sets as a father daughter fun time.    Lets get out of the rut and make some chips kid?!
So we did!   Good times   I love the angle vise Cletus!

Well   She's home from Boston Children's Hospital where she received her bone marrow transplant.   She was there nearly 5 weeks......so she's very weak, and won't be in the shop for some time to come, but her blood counts looked fantastic today, so ….so far so good.    She still has 3 weeks of radiation to complete, but the prognosis is very very good.

Watch this spot..... :lolb: in about 3 months.....

I cannot imagine being 17 and having to endure such a challenge, but I am very glad to hear that she is doing well!  Saying a few prayers in hope that Ava's success in this struggle continues for a very long time to come.

One final leg of treatment is radiation for 3 weeks 5 days a week...for "clean up" in the area where it all started.....BOTH times!

The first time she was 13.....she's been clean for 4 years....but it came back with a vengeance....luckily we found it in time....we almost didn't!

Good to hear. With the pandemic it's scary enough to go to a hospital these days. And to add those treatments on, I can't imagine.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

The bone marrow transplant was the scariest.    While in progress, your immune system is pretty much nonexistent....bad enough in normal times.....terrifying otherwise.
