For everyone out ther having fun this weekend, this will give you another reason to celebrate! Yesterday Eric went in for another biopsy to see if his bone marrow is still clear of leukemia cells (that they can detect), and it is!!
The physicians won’t give him yet the status of being in remission, but this is still WONDERFUL news! This because they still have some other procedures they need to do to ensure This will let Eric’s medical team proceed to the next step, which will be DLI (Donor Lymphocyte Infusion) from our sister Lindsey. This will encourage Graft vs. Leukemia, an effect in which Lindsey’s newly introduced lymphocytes will recognize the leukemia as being foreign and attack it. They will likely carry out this procedure very soon, we’ll keep you updated.
