Of Mice and Men

Tomorrow (Friday) he will start Cyclophosphamide and Campath. They expect these to cause some nausea. Unfortunately, the BMT is not 100% kosher. Now they tell me. The Campath is derived from mice serum then added to human antibodies, to create a 50% mice 50% human mix. They expect all children to have a reaction. Makes sense...we are not made from mice ;-) To prevent allergic reations they give all three: hydrocortisone, Benadryl, and Tylenol. As I said before, over the course of this BMT, he will get close to 20 or more different drugs.
