October 1

I just realized it’s been a month since there was an update.

Luke had a scan of his chest done two weeks ago. Scan showed progress being made in the fungus battle. He will have another scan at the end of October and if that is looks good infectious disease would clear him for bone marrow transplant team if that is what he wants to do.

For now it’s chemo. Routine is pretty well established. Round one in current cycle is methotrexate. Its been taking at least two weeks for counts to recover after round one and he usually gets a transfusion or tow (platelets or blood). The second round of the cycle is cytoxin is scheduled for tomorrow.

Kendall is between jobs and was off for the month of September. After two weeks in Montana at Tony’s parents she spent 10 days in Houston. Beth came through town for a few days as well.

Luke was feeling well enough to play Rudy’s and Genuwine during September. He also traveled to Nashville. The music department worked with him to complete work in two classes he started in January and trip was to take finals in those two classes…..he passed!

The Light the Night Walk is October 12th at Discovery Green. Hope you can join us……..this year Team Luke will again have a tent and as an added attraction/incentive Team Luke will be providing “Luck Feukemia” t-shirts for all walkers! Shirts are guaranteed to be collector’s items.

Team Luke is still open for donations at http://pages.lightthenight.org/txg/Houston13/DNovick We’re at 50% of the goal so donations are welcome.
