Dale has been doing so well over the last 8 months after his bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately on Tuesday the Inouye's received bad news. Dale's leukemia reoccurred. Dale had another bone marrow biopsy on Tuesday which confirmed that the leukemia has repopulated his bone marrow. Today Dale went back to the clinic where he received a unit of blood and treatment options were discussed. He will be admitted tomorrow for port-o-cath placement and initiation of chemo. He will probably be hospitalized for about 4 days. Needless to say Dale was disappointed in hearing that he will need further treatment. Dale is a stoic little fighter and it is encouraging to see him still able to smile.
The hope with this next chemo treatment is to get back into remission. The Inouye's appreciate your prayers for strength and healing.
