Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. I got home last Thursday. On Saturday, Nolan had his final football games of the season. They had a round robin between the 4 flag football teams. They won all four games and ended up being undefeated for the season. Their success can be attributed to the great coaching they had this year. Thanks Rick! Nolan played great this weekend. He got a touchdown and had a few great defensive plays.
When I first am admitted, I will go through another high dose round of chemo and full body radiation. The goal here is to completely wipe out my defective immune system. My immune system does not see my leukemic cells as "bad guys". My white cells which should attack these leukemic cells, just think they are normal cells and allow the leukemia to grow within my body. If left untreated, the leukemia will take over, kill my immune system and will not result in a happy ending to this story.
