Our most recent adventure...

The snow capped mountains of Salt Lake City, Utah! We decided to have our consultation with the Huntsman Center, because we have heard really great things about it. We met at the Clinic and talked to one of their BMT doctors. He went over everything we heard Robert's first time through it, plus some. It can be discouraging, the statistics they throw at us, but we know Robert's are better than what they tell us :D. They are going to be doing some things differently, but we will share that all when it comes. Robert is getting more chemo here late this week or early next week and that should be about 3 and a half weeks. They will let Robert recover for 3-4 weeks and then we will be going to SLC for his transplant, around early June. That is the plan as it stands now. It's nice to have more of an idea what will be going on.
Amanda came with us to SLC to give blood for Huntsman's records, and Linda joined us too. It was a 2 day partay! (Ok, really, not so much. But fun all the same.)
Robert outside the Huntsman Clinic, it is huge!
Our future home for at least 100 days! SLC here we come. (We're just glad it wont be as hot as Tucson! Blah!)

  1. I just wanted you to know how blessed you will be being at Huntsman. We went there a few days after my husband was diagnosed with CML. The staff doctors and nurses were great. It was a home away from home. He was in the Huntsman center for 2 weeks. We decided to do my husband's transplant in Denver where we live so our kids could be in school and at home etc. Good luck with the next round of chemo. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
