Sam continues to get healthier and stronger every day.  We are still having weekly clinic visits, alternating between Houston and Austin, but at our last visit in Houston, the doctor said he thought after the holidays, we could start with clinic visits every other week, still alternating between Houston and Austin.  So that means only one trip to Houston each month!  And once Sam is weaned completely off of all of her medicines, then the visits to Houston will be even less frequent.  I really don’t know what the plan is for the future as far as the frequency of her check-ups go, but we will do whatever the doctors want to do to keep tabs on Sam’s health and recovery to make sure this leukemia doesn’t come back!

However, because of the extent of heart disease that Bill has, they can’t even do a biopsy for at least 90 more days. Bill is bleeding internally from the bladder cancer, and is on a catheter. The Plavix he is on for his heart makes the bleeding worse, but currently his heart is the greatest risk to his life.
