Gaurav had extremely hard time coping up with the cancer relapse. He had high fever (104F) continuously for almost a fortnight. This was accompanied by lose motions almost 8-9 times a day for about the same period. All this has left Gaurav drained and extremely weak physically.
The blood counts are inching up slowly due to high dose of salvage chemo.
As I write this update, I just got information that Gaurav has been discharged from the hospital. He has been asked to eat a lot of food and excercise, so that he gets prepared for the transplant.
On remission front, the tests are yet to be conducted on Bone Marrow and Spinal fuild to check if Gaurav is in remission. These tests are expected to be performed on coming Monday. I hope cancer cells are all gone.
As mentioned earlier, Gaurav can proceed for transplant only if he is in complete remission (for both bone marrow and spine).
On donor front the doctors have decided to proceed with 9/10 match for the transplant.
Request your prayers and blessings for Gaurav!
