Jerek started course 3 on Monday, July 23. His counts recovered well over the 2 weeks he had off. His white count and hemoglobin were the highest they had been since this all began. His platelets were lower than they expected them to be, but not low enough to negatively affect anything. He received 3 chemo drugs that day. Last Thursday he also had a lumbar puncture with chemo. This course consists of chemo every 10 days and 2 lumbar punctures. These chemo drugs are not supposed to drop his counts as quickly as the previous courses. He went in this Monday for labs. His white count is slowly and steadily dropping, as expected. His hemoglobin and platelets were actually higher than his previous visit. Overall, he hasn’t felt too bad. He mostly just stays tired. He has developed some mouth sores from one of these chemo drugs and is working to heal those. They aren’t bad enough to affect his ability to eat, but they are bothersome. He goes in tomorrow for the next dose of chemo. He will get the same 3 drugs he got on the 23rd. Thank you for the continued prayers and support. We know with God’s guidance he can and will beat this.
