Last week we took my husband Brian to the hospital to check on a medical issue that had flared up. All seemed ok and he was initially sent home. Earlier this week, however, we rather shockingly learned that he has an extremely aggressive form of AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). He has been hospitalized ever since as we work together with the amazing doctors here to try to figure this all out.
The normal day to day activities at RHTH have continued to go on and will continue to go on and we are so blessed to have such amazing families and dear friends there right now while I do my best to juggle the caregiver role as well as so many of you have when faced with similar situations.
We missed some truly great opportunities this past week to share RHTH and our transplant families with so many of our loyal supporters and we deeply apologize for that and hope that you will understand our absence given the circumstances.
I will be away from RHTH for the most part the next few days and likely unable to answer any phone calls, but we certainly appreciate your outpouring of love and support and I can still be reached by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if needed. I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
