Treatment Has Begun

Daniel started his Red Cell Stimulating shots on Friday. He will have a shot every three weeks for a total of three shots. He is able to do his treatment here in town. He will have a follow up in March with Dr. Khoury at Emory. After the first round of shots they will see how the marrow is reacting and determine the next step. The main side effect of the shots is fatigue. His hemoglobin rate is at 8.6 (down from 9.7 when he was released from the hospital). Next week they will check his levels again and do a blood transfusion if needed.

I’m sure Daniel will post soon but I wanted to update everyone.

Thanks for the prayers!
Nikki
