Can I please get some vibes for my father?

Here is the link to the original thread for any of you who care to read it:

http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...ght=update+dad


Well, Dad is back in Little Rock and has had his second set of treatments of Chemo and is waiting for another stem-cell transplant. The first set of treatments went pretty smoothly, and he got to come home for a short break. He did loose all of his hair (what he had left anyway) and it was just starting to grow back before he started this round.

His wife called tonight to let me know that he is running a fever and his CRP levels are up. What this bascily means is that there is an infection somewhere in his body. Since he just had another round of chemo his white blood cell count is zero which means he has no immune system to fend off any illness. Right now its just kind of a wait and see situation, the doctors said the levels aren't high enough yet to tell exactly what is going on. If it should get worse it could be horribly life threatening, and if he beat it, he would still have to start the whole treatment process over again. Hopefully it turns out to be nothing, but we're all very worried.

If I could please get some prayers and vibes for my dad right now, that would be great. It seemed like everything was going so well. Hopefully it'll be ok and he can be back home by Thanksgiving.

I'm so sorry your Dad is going through this! Prayers that he recovers and gets well soon. My Dad grew up in Arkansas...he survived cancer and the treatments. It is difficult, but very possible, so don't give up hope!

Thank you all so much for all the kind thoughts and prayers. I had never even heard of this disease until he came up with it, and all of the doctors are telling him that he should have been dead six months ago. They say there is no way he should be as "healthy" as he is today. If this infection is easily cleared up, he'll be done with his treatments by Christmas and they expect it to be in total remission by then. So healthy, positive thoughts!! Thank you all again! You guys are the best!

Thanks so much!

He feels a little better this afternoon and his white blood cell count is slowly starting to climb back up. He is still running a fever, but it hasn't gotten any higher, and his CRP levels are still too high. Right now, its still hopefull.
I wish I could go see him, but he's two hours away, and I just can't get down there right now. He sounded much better on the phone today though.

I told him that I had all my "crazy cat ladies" praying for him, and that got a good chuckle out of him at least! Thank you all so much for all the support!

You're very welcome! Thankyou for letting him know that we are all keeping him in our prayers. Maybe that will keep his spirits up a bit. It is wonderful that the doctors are hopefull for him! That is excellent news. Hopefully his white blood count will continute to go up so that his immune system will be more efficient. Keep us posted! I hope he continutes to do better.(((vibes)))

Vibes and prayers from us. I have a friend who is in remission now after a second round of stem cell transplants at Duke University Hospital, he has myelomia. He's had a rough two years, but your Dad should know that it can be beat.
