Thursday +50 (10:10 PM) CMV Update

Unfortunately the CMV test came back still positive. The viral load count has increased from 500 on Monday to 4000 today. It seems to me that one of the tests could be incorrect. We will, of course, discuss this with the doctors tomorrow morning. For now, it appears it looks like we will continue the Ganicyclovir treatments. Jackie was somewhat depressed about the newest results. She was certainly hoping to stop the twice-a-day IV treatments.

Until Later....

It's just one test. The next one may be much better. Don't get discouraged. You are doing very well!

Bruce, there is a 100% probability that Jackie's (chimeric) immune system and the anvti-viral drugs will overcome the CMV.

While it's natural for Jackie to view this as a setback, it's really just a bump in the road to full recovery.

I am sorry about the test results. I am praying that this was a mistake. You have fought long and hard and this news will not stop you. You are tough. But most of all you are loved so hang in there.
