It’s been kind of a crazy week!
Dad got his T cells on the August 28th and as predicted on the 7th day, he began to experience the side affects associated with the T cells. Things began with a fever, turned into a cytokine storm and persisted in the form of neurotoxity. Consequently, my mom and dad have been at the hospital for the past week.
Tomorrow marks 14 days since the beginning of his car T cell therapy and it seems as though we are turning a corner. Dad is no longer regressing mentally and has regained his memory.
Dad keeps showing up (whether he remembers or not!). Around September 28th, they will do all of the tests and blood work to determine the success of the t-cell therapy.
I hate to keep saying thank you for your prayers but we really mean it!
