Time is Running Out!

We got a call from Dr Oehler, way after business hours, the other night.  She tells us that Tyler's latest blood test did show signs of circulating blasts.  This means that time is running out for Tasigna, as it is starting to have trouble controlling the leukemia again.  His other counts were okay, but we don't know how long it will be before the leukemic cells start to get out of control again.

He may not be able to wait until the Ariad trial opens up in Houston.  He'll be getting blood counts at least weekly for the next little bit, as Dr Oehler keeps a very close eye on his status.

  1. Just wanted you to know I'm thinking about you, Tyler! If you run into our friend Kyle again (little miss soccer coach), let me know. -Erin
