Unfortunately Casey's leukemia has once again returned. So I am back to posting on his blog.
Tuesday afternoon, Casey's doctor told us he has an appointment at MD Anderson in Houston on Thursday morning. Tuesday evening was spent trying to find an affordable flight and hotel room with less than 24 hours notice. So here we are in Houston, TX. The Reliant Center is next door to the hotel and a giant boot store is across the street. We are not in Lancaster County any more. We booked one way tickets, because there are so many unknowns.
We arrived at MD Anderson at 9:30 this morning and finally finished up at 7:30 tonight. The hospital campus is 3.2 miles in size. The place is huge! Casey had blood work and a bone marrow biopsy before seeing the doctor. The equipment they have can tell them what type of cancer cells he has. They will select his best course of treatment after all of these tests are in. I thought Hershey Medical Center was big. Now it looks small. Tomorrow it is back to the hospital to find out what course of treatment they recommend. And if time allows, maybe I will have to buy a pair of cowboy boots!
I will let you know.
