This is Yvonne writing on behalf of Jim again, as promised. I spoke with Jim this morning. He’s doing quite well under the circumstances. He’s been receiving three doses of chemo each day, and yet experiencing very few side effects. Anti-nausea medication is helping. He is a bit more tired, and that is expected to increase over the next few days.
Everything is on course to re-introduce his stem cells tomorrow. That will then leave his immune system much more vulnerable. So it’s best not to visit at this point, since he’ll be so susceptible to germs that wouldn’t necessarily effect someone ordinarily. He would love to receive emails though.
Jim’s sisters are leaving later this week. His Mom and another sister will arrive the next day. So he has family with him each day.
I know Jim is immensely grateful for all of your prayers and support.
