Up-date on my son's AML treatment. He has now stated the next stage of Chemo which is 50% stronger than the last lot and they are now looking world wide for a donor. He is not doing so well with this one as the last. He is Vomiting a lot and food has lost all it's normal appeal (He loved his food)
He was moved last night while we were there to a single room as he will soon be neutropenic sepsis. He will be open to any infection that normally would not bother any of us. But strangely it is the bugs laying in his own stomach that will usually knock him down it appears.
Because of the treatment he will need to have any new blood he may need irradiated before being given it and will need to carry a card for the rest of his life stating this.
