Day 11: Not "Double Hit"!

Day 11. Today was the day we've been waiting for with the genetic markers of the cancer. So, great news is I don't have the double-hit resistance, so my body should NOT resist the therapy! Praise God.

I don't have the Burkett lymphoma, but I still have a pretty aggressive form which places me in that middle category for treatment. So, starting tonight, at 6:00 I was supposed to begin the first round of treatment of RMCHOP, which would be the M part or Methotrexate.

We just have 1 small hiccup. I can't start the M until the alkaline levels in my urine indicate my kidneys will be able to handle the barrage of melted lymphoma. And right now the numbers are just not there! So I'm getting meds to try and get the levels correct. In the meantime my Chemo is hung and ready to go. A bit frustrating, but "I've got to keep my eyes above the waves. When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace For I am Yours and You are mine"

Prayer request is that my ph levels will get to where they need to be so I can start the treatment as quickly as is safe.
