Amaey's new treatment plan
The treatment plan with Amaey's relapse is pretty intense.
He has to undergo chemo in the hospital so every 3 weeks he is admitted in the hospital for 3-5 days. He also underwent 12 consecutive days of radiation.
He has 1 more round of hospital stay for this round. Then for the next 4 weeks he is off the hook. He will get his chemo as outpatient. But starting end of September he will undergo an intense phase of treatment with hospital stays again for 6 cycles which will take us until March of 2010.
This is all truly unconceivable.
We are taking each day at a time. It is really hard to think of after the treatment at this point. We are scared to think about that. A relapse can shake the ground you are standing on. All those positive beliefs, the silver lining... everything evaporates in thin air.
