Raymond, the husband of our sister from Scotland, Anhelyna, who posts here as the slave, has been diagnosed with leukemia. He is now undergoing further testing to determine its specific nature and plan treatment according to what she has posted at ByzCath. Please keep both Raymond and her in your prayers.

Saints Cosmas and Damien, Unmercenary Physicians, guide Raymond's doctors in diagnosing and treating him, that he may be restored to health. Holy Theotokos, intercede before the Holy Throne that Anhelyna be given strength to cope with this crisis and that God grant both of them many years.

Anhelyna has posted an update at Byzcath. Her husband's diagnosis is acute myeloid leukemia and the prognosis for survival could be as short as 4 to 6 weeks. He is not a suitable candidate for a bone marrow transplant, but will begin undergoing aggressive treatment within a few days. Please keep Raymond and our sister in your prayers.

WOW

I never knew that this thread had been started  Shocked

Thank you all so much for your prayers and support.

I have Raymond at home today after he had an echo cardiograph this morning.

The last 2 weeks have been very stressful as you can well imagine. He is now in the specialised Haemato Oncology Unit and between tests has been allowed home as long as he has not been mixing with other people. So far the only treatment , other than the investigations,has been 3 units of blood 2 days after he was admitted to Hospital and before his transfer to the Unit.

He goes in again tomorrow to have the HIckman Line inserted and should be home for the weekend on Friday and then Chemotherapy starts on Monday - and this will last for about 8 - 10 weeks or longer depending on his response.

For someone who has never been ill ,other than a dose of shingles about 35 years ago , this has been a very nasty shock .

I have not been able to get to DL for the last 2 weeks as this involves me in a 6 hour day away from home , and this I could not do. Raymond is keen for me to go this week as it will be my last chance for some weeks now - I have to be near the hospital. Whether or not I will manage on Sunday I really don't know - but I hope so.

Once more - thank you all so much for your prayers

May God Bless Raymond and keep him steadfast....Amen

The enviroment and the whole atmosphere is probably unsettling. Keep an Icon of the Theotokos nearby him if possible.

Please keep with your prayer life. It will be healing for you and Raymond at this difficult time.

Lord have mercy on us all!

Update

Raymond went back into hospital as planned today [ it was a nice quiet weekend at home eating his favourite foods etc \Cheesy ]

Blood was taken as soon as we arrived [ nice and easy now thanks to the Hickman line Cheesy ) ] and I waited with him till the Consultant saw him.

Chemo will start this afternoon .

I have just had an SMS from him [ I said I would leave now so they could set up the Chemo and would phone tomorrow to see how he was in the morning and go in in the afternoon ] which says that his bloods are very low and he has been moved to a single room for his protection. This move to isolation is much earlier than we had anticipated Sad

Chemo is due to last for 10 days - running 24 hours a day and then he will have a period of recovery still in hospital and then further Chemo.

Please keep those prayers going for him

I can't keep an Icon with him much as I would like to - nor can he be annointed - he proclaims himself to be atheist /agnostic.

Should he express any wish for this I do know a Ruthenian Priest [ in England Smiley ] who has said he will come up if Raymond asks.

Thank you for the update.

Please excuse me while I offer this small word of prayer.....

In the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit one God ; Amen.

God who answers every prayer please look over me thy sinful and unrighteous servant that I ask in prayer that you remember us your children who are in need. Please keep the strength of our dear beloved Raymond. Show him your truth, give him faith and forgive him his sins so that he may endure the days and weeks ahead cheerfully and without fear, hoping on your will in everything. Show him sunshine and bright days and remembrance of all your blessings that has kept him till this day so that he will know by these things that you have and are always present with him even at this hour and all time. We pray for him so he will find blessing and healing of mind, body and most importantly spirit that your Holy will may be done in the name of Christ our redeemer Amen and Amen.

Our Father who art in heaven......

O Holy Virgin Mary mother of Christ our God, elect among the elect in the peace of the Holy Archangel Gabriel peace be unto the...."Thou art a virgin in spirit as well as in body". Keep us in your prayers at this hour and all hours that our prayers will not be hindered because of our error and slackness. Keep this small prayer for us for the sake of many who are in need and also for Raymond and his family. In the name of Christ our Lord Amen.

Glory be to Father the Son and the Holy Spirit...hallelujah Amen.


Thank you for allowing me to share with you my prayer for beloved husband.

I will continue to pray for you and Raymond even more now.

I truly hope that you are doing well with things. You seem to have good strength.

Never loose hope ...OK!

May God in the name of His Son Christ our Savior continue to bless you, keep you and strengthen you+++ Amen.

Update

The end of phase 1 of Raymond's treatment is today - the first round of Chemo is over [ well later this evening  ]

He now , as he told me , has no immune system - his resistance to infection is zero.

At this stage it's even more important than ever that he is in that isolation room.

From tomorrow he enters a recuperation phase during which time he will continue to be on antibiotics being given by his Hickman line and will also be getting anti fungal treatment as well. During this recuperation period his blood will be monitored very very closely to see if he goes into remission - even if he does - a second round of Chemo will follow and another recuperation period too.

Since his treatment started just over a week ago he has not slept for more than 2 hours at a time - either day or night since his IV Pumps 'sing' as the bag nears empty - and when he has 2 going at once they rarely finish at the same time We are both hoping that he may get a reasonable sleep soon - he's understandably very very tired.

We thank you all for your prayers

Once more , we watch and wait, and I pray.

I have just collected him from Hospital for a a few days at home before Round 2 of Chemo.

Sadly he is not in remission Sad

Apparently his form of AML is very difficult to treat

He will go back in on Monday and Chemo will start on Tuesday.

Your prayers are  appreciated

He has had 4 wonderful days at home - eating everything he wanted .

I took him back to hospital this morning and the new round of chemotherapy starts tomorrow.

He has lost so much weight - I really can't believe it .

He is now frankly terrified - and so am I.

Everyone keeps emphasising that his particular form of AML is very difficult to treat .

Please know that God is looking over you and your husband.

I am also afraid with you.

Bravery is only known by fear. The bigger the fear the bigger the bravery

So if we fear it is normal. But we are soon to be brave. God will provide the strenght we all need in time.

I am always praying for you and your husband.

God bless you.

Raymond is now back in an isolation [ laminar flow] room.

His white count has dropped to a level at which he is now unable to fight infections.

This round of Chemotherapy will finish on Wednesday evening and then we wait during the 'recovery' phase to see if he goes into remission.

Update

On Holy Saturday I got a request to go and collect Raymond to allow him  to have a few days at home.

His white count had now risen enough to permit him to be out of his Isolation Room and they thought he would like to be at home.

He goes into the Day Unit om Tuesday for blood tests , his Hickman line to be flushed and possibly a Bone Marrow biopsy done.

He is expected to be readmitted on Monday 5th May. [ Presumably this is for Round 3 of Chemo ]

So far we do not know if he is yet in Remission .

Thank you all for your prayers

His blood count is still rising Smiley

The Consultant is very pleased with the way things are going - he will remain at home until his Bone Marrow biopsy is done on 8th May and we will wait then for news .

Thank you all so much for your prayers - I am convinced that they have helped.

Lord have mercy and heal your servant.

My brother went through several months of chemo a couple of years ago and it was indeed a terrifying thing to see a man over six feet tall lose 75 pounds after chemo.  May God heal your husband and comfort you both.

the latest update as of 2 hours ago

He is in remission !!!


this is fantastic news - but he is still to receive further chemo and then after that is over he will be given a form of maintenance treatment for 5 days every 6 weeks for about another 6 months.

As he is on a research progamme we had no choice in the follow up now he is in remission . There were 4 possibilities -  another round of Chemo , nothing at all , Maintenance treatment , or Chemo + Maintenance.

While Raymond was having his blood taken he was 'randomised' and the computer decided he would get 1 more round of Chemo and then this maintenance treatment [ 5 days treatment every 6 weeks for about 6 months ]

We are expecting a phone call this afternoon with todays blood test results and a date for his re-admission [ remember they have but 18 beds and we are waiting in fact for someone to be discharged to get a bed for Raymond ]

Meantime I'm going around muttering to myself

"Glory to God for all things "

I cannot adequately express my thanks to all for the support and prayers

well having had the phone call from Hospital today - his white count has indeed continued to rise and not a single leukaemic cell has been detected.

We are to phone the hospital on Wednesday to see if there is a bed - if so Chemo will start ASAP and then get followed by out patient treatment for 5 days every 6 weeks for 54 weeks.

We are starting some of the preliminary work for this round of Chemo this weekend - but it's done at home.

I really don't think that either of us are fearing the future to quite the same extent - we are sure that we will beat this despite a 5 yr survival rate of less than 40%.

Please continue to pray with me

Well - I'm just back from taking him in again for his third , and hopefully last , round of Chemo.

After this is over he will be on the maintenance programme for the next 54 weeks !

Some of the nursing staff , when I took him in, could not believe how well he looked - he's been out having good walks in decent weather and has put on 3Kg  in the three weeks since he came home !!

Christ Has Risen!!!

Jesus Christ is so merciful and loving.

What would we do without him?

I am so happy that hope and healing is the new and current outlook for you and Raymond. Quite a different situation from a few months ago. Lord have mercy....

The Lord is our Shepard!

It is He who prepares for us the green pastures even in the midst of horror, trial, fear and sorrow. So even when we are afraid and the world is not kind to us we are comforted. Of course we want a certain out come to our troubles that is normal; but we know that really it does not matter what the result will be since no matter what it is we (His Faithful) we will be comforted. Truely and literally comforted....Amen

I am so happy; I am almost in tears.

My wife and members of St. Michael Parish are all praying for you.

May Raymond continue to heal and may the Lord keep you healthy and strong in spirit, mind and body.

Please enjoy the your long weekend (I hope you are off for the holiday!)

Well that's hopefully, his last round of IV Chemo finished today .

This session has not been totally trouble free - he's on IV Antibiotics at present but is looking better as his temp is now stabilising.

I have no idea at present how his bloods are doing - but we are now back in the waiting period.

Thank you all for your support

May I crave some extra prayers please ?

Today we learnt that Raymond's white count has decreased to a very low level . This was to be expected - it's meant to happen Smiley

However he should now be moved to one of the 6 single Laminar Flow , pressure controlled rooms for his own safety to protect him from infection .

BUT

They are all in use and he has to remain in an 'open' 4 bed bay which is less than ideal.

He will be moved as soon as a room is free - but no-one knows when that will be.

This is now a rather scary situation

I have just received an SMS from Raymond - he is now in one of the 6 Isolation rooms !!

I'm not asking how it was done - the room he is now in had a red warning notice on it yesterday - "Do not enter without speaking to the Nursing Staff "

However that scary situation has been resolved thanks be to God.

Raymond has now had 2 cycles of his maintenance treatment  - and they have been problem free Smiley

We are now on a new routine - 5 weeks between each round of maintenance. He gets weekly blood tests for 4 weeks and is not tested the week before maintenance as his bloods have to be checked the day treatment starts.

So far we have experienced no side effects from the Azacytidine [Vidaza in the USA ] other than some slight erythema at the injection sites.

He was seen by one of his consultants today who is very very pleased with the way things are going - to the extent that they are considering removing his Hickman line after the next cycle of Azacytitdine.

He has re-commenced horse-riding and is now allowed to travel on public transport - so life really is starting to return slowly to normal.

We had hoped to be able to go to Lourdes [ at his suggestion Smiley] in October - but with the way that the treatment schedule is working out this is not possible - 9 days is not really long enough as virtually 6 days would be devoted to travel [ he's not yet allowed to fly ] - that is going to have to wait till autumn next year 

Thank you for all your support
