Great Possibilities

When we met with Dr M (and our favorite Oncology nurse, Debbie) this morning, the doc said that Tyler was essentially healthy enough that his remaining symptoms could be treated as an outpatient. However, we could not leave the hospital without having a supply of Tyler's medication (Sprycel). Just an interesting fact on that... Dr M says that Tyler is the first Premera patient to be approved for Sprycel. It's a relatively new medication, having only been approved by the FDA in June 2006. A newer version (Tasigna) was just approved yesterday, so more possibilities are on the horizon.

Anyways... Tyler called me this afternoon to say that the medicine was supposed to be in at the pharmacy until late today. I just got off the phone with them and it is in now, so I am off to pick up Tyler's medication. Hooray for that because it means he will most likely be released TOMORROW!!

Merry Christmas!
