PRAYER REQUEST GARY ALTMAN
Last night when I asked Gary if he had emailed you yet, he said no and asked what he should say. Since he is in the recovery room, after having a port placed this morning, I decided I would write to you.
I will start by asking for prayers. It has been a crazy and hectic January. It started on January 3rd when Gary was helping our daughter move a mattress and passed out and was having chest pain. We went to the ER, thinking he was having a heart attack. Good news, it wasn't a heart attack. Bad news, Gary has lymphoma. He has Non-Hodgkin’s diffuse large B cell lymphoma.
He was hospitalized from January 3-6, and in addition to multiple outpatient procedures, he was re-hospitalized on Monday, January 19th. Gary has very low blood levels right now. He has received transfusions three separate times, and unfortunately, we have discovered that he has some rare antibodies that make it difficult for his body to accept and process the transfusions. The oncologist has started IV steroids in the hope that it will help his body accept the transfusions. With the steroids and yesterday's transfusion his level is a tiny bit better. We are staying hopeful that we can continue to increase his hemoglobin level enough that he will be able to start chemotherapy soon.
Our outlook is hopeful and Gary is planning on giving this battle his all. Please pray for us.
I'll keep you posted with updates.
Please send inquires and well wishes to Gary’s wife, Eve at firstname.lastname@example.org
