A real update…

This time around I’ve kinda dropped the ball on keeping y’all updated. Sorry. The reasons are simple; my first week or so here was horrible!

Let me catch you up. I last left you with the how and why, about returning to UCLA because my leukemia had returned. I touched on some medical stuff and a bit of our financial stresses. Since then, an overwhelming number of you stepped in to help us out, and it has been such a blessing! We are humbled by the care so many have offered. And it’s not just the financial help, through PayPal. It’s also the meals being made, at home when Deanna is there with the kids, and meals made in Camarillo, when the kids are with my parents. We are also grateful for all the overwhelming prayer support that we know is being offered round the clock.

I’ve spent that last month tucked away in my hospital room, at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. In fact, last Wednesday marked my one month anniversary. Yippy!

One other thing I need to catch you all up on is my treatment plan. Since my setback last month, I’ve been through another aggressive induction chemotherapy treatment. On top of IV chemo, the leukemia was found in my CSF, so I received a whole bunch of chemo, via a spinal tap. Guess what…THAT SUCKS!

In the next few days I’ll be headed home for a rest. Then, in a few weeks, I’m headed back to UCLA for a bone marrow transplant. Yeah, you read that right. I’ve heard that there are matches in the “bank”, but they’re still waiting for results from a possible family match.

I’ll try to keep you all posted, as we have more information.

  1. Hi, Trevor! I’m a blast from your past. I just wanted to reach out, touch-base, and let you know that I’m sending kind thoughts and prayers your way! I’m not sure if you remember me, but I’m pretty sure that we were in the same grade at Las Colinas and Adolfo Camarillo High School. In fact, I think we were extras together on an episode of “Growing Pains!” My mom shared your blog information with me. I just started reading your posts. It sounds like you and your family are going through a lot. Stay strong! We are thinking and praying for you on the East coast! -Michelle
