We have tried to delay this as far as we could. A second transplant is inevitable.
I had my second chance in life in March this year, but it didn’t work out the way we want it to be.
Perhaps it’s going to be third time lucky for me. The medical team has set the date of admission to be on 22 Oct 2012.
Chance of remission is about 10 – 20% (previously 70%).
Chance of Graft versus host disease – 60 – 80%.
- This is both good and bad.
Good in a way that the chance of graft versus leukaemia is higher.
Bad in that the donor cells may launch aggressive attacks on my cells.
I have done whatever I could, the rest I will leave it to fate.
What’s important now is to live happily, with peace in my heart.
The following two to three weeks will be difficult and likely to be another test of my limits. Visitors are limited to my immediate family.
To my supporters, I would really appreciate any lovely quotes, jokes, pictures or even past good memories that we had together send to my whatsapp, facebook or email. Things that will give me the strength and will to fight. Things that will make me break a smile. Things that water the seeds of hope, courage and positivity.
