Some of you on here know that I have been getting chemo treatments for Multiple Myeloma. Almost 2 years ago I had a tumor removed from my spine and had chemo to get the 25% that the surgery didn't get. All went well and I was doing good for more than a year until April 2008 when the Myeloma came back. Multiple Myeloma is cancer in the bone marrow that attacks any bones. I started a different type of chemo in May and in my 5th month of treatment. I have one more month to go till end of October. While at treatment last week, I saw the Doc and he said after the treatments he is going to refer me over to M. D. Anderson Hospital at the Houston Medical Center for a Bone Marrow Transplant. It will take 6 to 8 weeks to get the paperwork and approvals and pre-op testings and looking around the first of the year for the transplant. It will take 4 weeks then, maybe in hospital or partially as out patient. So that's the good news I have to share with all my Tugger friends.
