YOU CAN EMAIL BRADLEY AT OU MEDICAL CENTER NOW.He has a laptop and you can reach him at big_bad_bradley@yahoo.com
This is listed most current to oldest information.

Bradley is still spiking fevers.All of his
...
Bradley has gone to sleep and since it's almost 11:00 I should too.
...
Bradley is saying he will be fine here for a few days alone since he won't be receiving any chemo or treatments.All he will be doing is laying here getting antibiotics, having labs drawn and receiving transfusions of platelets and red blood cells as need to get his numbers back up.He doesn't want Gil and I using our time for weeks like this when there will be more important times for us to be here, like when he is actually getting chemo. They will also start the neuprogen shots again to help build the white blood cells. There really isn't that much more to update right now.He is 110% better than he was yesterday when I brought him down.He is eating his lunch and watching TV right now.
...
Bradley will have to have his counts checked twice a week.If they get too low, he will have to have infusions while home.If he gets a fever or starts feeling sick we will have to either go to St. Mary's emergency or come down here.Fever will indicate infection and he will have to get onto an antibiotic.He was considering staying here between cycles but when he heard 21-28 days, he changed his mind really quick!He had enough of that "extended hospital stay" with cycle 1! Welll, Gil is here and Denise and Tim will be back from their shopping pretty quick so I'd better bring this to a close.I will let everyone know when Bradley gets home (probably Tuesday morning) since his chemo runs so late into the evening/night.I was going to share, the nurses are referring to Bradley as the young man with the beautiful brown eyes that he know how to use to get anything he wants out of them!His nurse last night was a flex nurse that was here for the first time since we've been here.When she came in to put his eye drops in, she said "there are those brown eyes I've heard about all night!I

Bradley and I were finally able to leave the hospital last night at 5:00 p.m.We had to wait for a surgery consult.We weren't sure they were going to make it up, but they did at the last minute.The first thing on the agenda when we go back next week will be to put a port in. Right now he has a PIC line in his upper right arm with 2 access points dangling.They have to have sterile dressings changed once a week and are high risk for infection so they want to put the port in for a more permanent long-term access point.He will have one more lumbar puncture with interthecal chemo either Thursday or Friday and the second chemo cycle is four days, two medications and will be inpatient. He tolerated the drive home pretty good yesterday.We found a Sonic and he got a Chocolate Whopper Shake and worked on that all the way home, put it in the freezer and finished it this afternoon/evening.Mom came over and spent the biggest part of the day with him while Gil and I were both at work.They both took naps this afternoon and I know they both really enjoyed their time together! We are hoping Bradley can get some good rest while he is home.Of course, if he feels like it tomorrow he wants me to drive him to the game in Alva so we can see Shawna march again and he can see some of his friends who have been so wonderful in supporting him since his diagnosis.He still pulls so much of his strength and encouragement from his extended Alva family as I have started referring to them.We truly appreciate all of the support and prayers we are receiving. I must run for now, but wanted to let everyone know we did get home yesterday and he is feeling pretty good right now.
...
Bradley gave Gil a scare yesterday evening.He (Bradley) was coming out of the bathroom, looked at Gil, his pupils went to pinpoints, his color drained and Gil caught him before he hit the ground.He passed out!
...
Bradley was also pretty nauseated and throwing up this morning.In light of this, we have changed our plans.Gil was coming home this afternoon to work 6:30 a.m. -- 2:00 p.m. tomorrow, then I wasn't going back down until Thursday morning when he is supposed to come home for a few days.We really aren't comfortable leaving him alone at the moment, so Gil called and took off tomorrow and I'll go down as soon as I get off work at 3:30.Gil is going to bring a load of stuff home out of the room tomorrow and Bradley and I will bring the rest on Thursday. He will be home until Wednesday or Thursday of next week.He has one more lumbar puncture and interthecal chemo and will start cycle 2 of his chemo regiment at the same inpatient stay.It will be nice having him home for a few days and having a break from driving back and forth all the time.It's not only getting expensive with gas prices the way they are, but tiring as well! I think a few short visits would be fine provided you aren't sick.If anyone has a cold, cough, sinus gunk or has been on antibiotics they shouldn't be around him, or you have to wear a mask.If you want to come over, you may want to call first, as Bradley is wanting me to take him to Alva to the football game Saturday, if he feels up to it.We have had someone tell us we can use their parking space on the terraces so we don't have to get out of the car.He is still in protective isolation, even at home as his white count has dropped to 1.5 again.His platelets were 177 this morning though so that is good that they are coming up.We have been told we will ride the seesaw on his white and red cell counts throughout this treatment time. I'll keep you all posted on how things go while he is home and when we have to be back at the hospital and for how long we will be in this next time.
...
Bradley had another lumbar puncture Friday.It was followed by the interthecal chemo (into the spinal fluid), the Vencristine (IV push) and his Asperagenaze (sub-Q shot).
...
Bradley will get to come home on Thursday afternoon and then have to be back to the hospital either Monday or Tuesday to be readmitted to start cycle two.We do not know how long he will be inpatient this time yet. Please continue to pray for him to tolerate the chemo without it making him deathly ill. So far, so good on that point.We have also been told he will only have to have one more lumbar puncture as the spinal fluid keeps testing negative for leukemia cells in the central nervous system (spine & brain)!Praise God for that!
...
need to have someone here with Brad when he is getting treatments. We will figure something out. Well, we are about to go outside to feed the fish in the pond out front. It's nice he can get outside for some fresh air.
...
Just wanted to give a quick update on Bradley.He has had his first three days of chemo.
...
Gil called and told me Bradley ate some chicken noodle soup and crackers tonight and has held them down!That's awesome since he hasn't been able to eat very much without throwing it back up.We think it has been the chemo injected into the spinal fluid that was causing the nausea.Also one of the pre-meds tastes really bad and he usually gags when he has to take it, so that has actually caused him to throw up a couple of times also.They are trying a couple of tricks to get it down without him tasting so much of it. Bradley is pretty bumbed out right now too.We were told before he comes home we have to get rid of all of our pets.He does not want to get rid of Peanut, but it has to happen.So, we are starting to look for people who will take Peanut, Socks, Bub and/or Calli either singly or in any combination.We are hoping this can be on a fostering basis so when he is in remission and no longer an infection risk we could get at least some of them back.

Updates for Bradley: 09-22-07 went through his first round of Chemo today and is doing well!BLOOD TEST RESULTS ARE BACK AND HIS SPINAL COLUMN
