I know it sounds crazy, but I really wanted to have his surgeries today for two reasons--one, that prognosis is better when chemo regimens are spaced closer together, and secondly, because I really really really want to know if he's in remission. If he's in remission, it is unlikely he'll need a bone marrow transplant and all the complications that come along with it. We'll be hoping and praying that's the case.
In the meantime, we've felt a bit hypocritical by telling sick people and little kids to keep their distance while Stew and I have both gotten a pretty nasty cold. Andrew seems just fine, though. Stew has a whole heck of a lot of schoolwork to catch up on (2 finals and a huge paper), and even though we've been sick, we're just so happy to be home.
