His diagnosis has been quite a shock to our family, and we found out today that it is not one of the more treatable forms like they thought at first, but actually a more difficult type to treat. He also has developed pneumonia in the past couple days.
It sounds like he will be undergoing intensive chemo and a bone marrow transplant, and that he will be in the hospital for at least a month.
Since his newest grandchild is scheduled to be delivered on Wednesday, we are all hoping that they will be able to use stem cells from the cord blood to treat him. They are going to try, but there is only a 25% chance that it will be a match.
Please pray for his recovery and that they will be able to give him the most effective treatments.
