About 5 short weeks ago I posted about my hubby being sidewhacked by RT for the 2nd time. His treatment using R-GDP was deemed best and he received 1 cycle. He had several bouts of confusion subsequently with a bleed in the brain as the likely culprit due to his low platelets. Alas, a head CT scan revealed several lesions. The aggressive lymphoma had spread! He now had DLBCL with CNS (central nervous system) involvement! R-GDP was stopped and palliative care commenced.
My dearest hubby passed away peacefully on 12/9/19.
The wonders of modern medicine advances over the last 20 years such as autologous stem cell transplants and Ibrutinib allowed us to have many more years than we expected. For this I am truly grateful and feel blessed.
I wish all the souls who have CLL the very best outcomes from whatever treatments you have and for all their loved ones be their rock but be kind to yourselves too.
I now am closing my time on this fantastic source of knowledge and support. Thank you for being there.
