Treatment Update: Day 2

The Champion with Dr. Michel (oncology/hematology)

Day 1 is done. Yay! Lot of love and concern for how Tyler is doing after his first round. I can happily report that he took it like a champ. As this is now going to be the start of chemo build-up in his system, we will still have to wait for possible side effects to show face. Tyler is still under a quarantine of sorts, so visitation is to be determined.

For those that are interested, we were informed today that the cancer has been detected in bone marrow but not in his spinal fluid. As mentioned in the treatment plan, I think the doctors were expecting this, as this type of lymphoma is common in bone marrow.

Keep the support coming. On to Day 2!

  1. Sending many, many good thoughts. Know you don’t know me but your brother Calvin does, He gave this site so I just wanted to post my good thoughts–sending support from Nebraska. Brenda Tyndall

    • Thank you Brenda. I’m glad you were able to pull up this website. If you would do me a favor and let Calvin and Ernie check the website periodically for updates if they want to know what is happening with Tyler that would be most helpful. It is so difficult to call everyone and provide timely updates…not enough hours in the day. Thanks again. –Marlene
