The Boy's chemotherapy regimen is going to change. Radically. Because of the new growth while on treatment, he is going to receive the same treatment as a Wilms Tumor patient who has relapsed. In a way, that is exactly what has happened.
The treatment is expected to take approximately two years and will be predominantly inpatient; three to five days in the hospital, followed by about 2 weeks off in which he will have his blood counts done, and then repeat. Likely, his first inpatient chemo will take place around Thanksgiving.
I will elaborate more on what this all means for our family in a later post, but although the light is visible at the end of the tunnel, it's mighty far away.
