Jason, Kerry here. I always thought you were kind of a DlCK. I'm sure you thought the same of me. I'm saddened to hear of this. I can only imagine what you and your family are going through.  This hits home and I'm pulling for you man. I'm certain you'll be okay. PayPal coming, good luck

Not everyone see things eye to eye all the time. You were always a little harsh on the new guys at Vintage, but I just let it roll off my back. Thank you for the support, I really appreciate it.

Definitely a good resource. 

And if you just have questions just ask. My wife works at a hospital and I see docs all the time.
Your stats look good by the way.
Keep the positive attitude. Personally I think that is a big part of recovery.

Thank you. We will be contacting them on Monday. We just got another bill for $74,000 today, that maybe they can help with. smile $130k in bills so far and $13k a month for my meds. With 3 more months of chemo, I am guessing we will be close to $250k, and the meds have to continue for 2 years.

Re: Recently Jason Kraig has been diagnosed with APL Leukemia

Well chemo starts up again tomorrow through the end of the week. I also get the results from my bone marrow test from last week. I am hoping things are looking good. Fingers crossed!!!

Re: Recently Jason Kraig has been diagnosed with APL Leukemia

Sprycel??  I am taking Idarubicin (drip chemo), ATRA (oral chemo), and about 8 other pills including 2 shots a day in the stomach.

Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) medicines may include all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) and chemotherapy with arsenic trioxide, idarubicin, or daunorubicin. ATRA also helps control the risk of life-threatening bleeding from disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).

Chemotherapy is the standard treatment for many types of leukemia. Even when a cure is not possible, chemotherapy may help you live longer and feel better.

Chemotherapy for leukemia is usually a combination of drugs. This is because different drugs attack leukemia cells in different ways. The combination also helps keep the leukemia cells from becoming resistant to any one drug. Other drugs used to treat leukemia help prevent infection and help your body grow new blood cells (such as epoetin and hematopoietic stimulants).

Nausea and vomiting are the most common side effects of chemotherapy for leukemia. But having chemotherapy does not mean that you have to suffer with nausea and vomiting. Your doctor may prescribe medicines to control nausea and vomiting.

Re: Recently Jason Kraig has been diagnosed with APL Leukemia

Just got back from my chemotherapy and meeting with my doctor. The test results from my bone marrow biopsy from last week look good. The test shows no Leukemia with the test. The big test that shows if it is in full remission will be in December, just in time to starts 2013 Leukemia FREE!! big_smile

Re: Recently Jason Kraig has been diagnosed with APL Leukemia

Tomorrow is my last day of chemo for the month of September!!! Now I just have to go in twice a week for blood tests. Chemo will start up again the 3rd week of October and will only be for 3 days. November will be 2 days, and then December is the big test to see if everything is in full remission.

Re: Recently Jason Kraig has been diagnosed with APL Leukemia

Good luck JKraig, my mother has beat cancer not once but twice (cervical and breast cancer) with chemo both times in the last decade. I'm thankful she is such a strong survivor and i will keep you in my thoughts and pray for a great new year for you in 2013!

Re: Recently Jason Kraig has been diagnosed with APL Leukemia

hey JKraig
I met with my Surgical Oncologist today for my quarterly check up.  Gave me the all clear and moved me to 6 months. 1 year 6 months this month cancer free buddy. You can do it.   Althought i will miss the comfort of hearing I look ok every 3 months, its a good feeling to hear him tell me he was moving me to every 6 months.  Keep up the good work, we are all cheering for your quick recovery.
