Great news!! (Mods-please move this to the OT forum)
We know what he has now, it is called MDS or Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Basically the bone marrow and stem cells are malfunctioning. Patients with this have low blood cell counts in at least one or more of the 3 blood lines (red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets). And there are 3 different medications that he should be able to take to help him out. There is more to this obviously but I will get me and everyone confused by it all.
He is going to go to the University of CA at San Francisco next week to do tests and all that junk.
But he is better and they can treat him!!!
