The web site is now up and running (after a bit of prodding from Charlie!). I'm now in the fourth week since my diagnosis. My pregnancy is now in its seventeenth week and the twins are moving around quite a bit (mostly at night when I'm tired!). My consultant has put me on All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), which acts on the cause of my leukaemia. This treatment is less hazardous for the twins than chemotherapy would be at this point.
The plan for my treatment is to continue with the ATRA until my pregnancy gets to 32 weeks or so and then to deliver the twins by C-section. After that I'll get a course of chemotherapy.
I've got a busy few days ahead of me, Megan's birthday party on Saturday, a bone marrow test on Valentine's Day(!) and an ultrasound scan on the 17th.
Thanks to everyone who has been so great at helping us out with babysitting, child care and everything else. V x 🙂
