At 28 years old, in late May 2019, PJ had been feeling lots of aches and pains which he thought were strains from too much golf. On Thursday, May 30 he felt that it was time to go to the ER because it became unbearable.

Great news, after 13 days in the hospital with pneumonia, PJ came home on Wednesday and is getting better every day. What a very scary time that was.

He had a visit with his Dr. today and was informed that he will be moving to Maintenance treatment. This was great news considering we were expecting 5 more months of infusion! Maintenance will consist of two and a half years of pills and periodic infusion treatments yet it is a great step in the right direction. PJ and all of us are extremely happy and positive and thankful for everybody for checking in, writing, praying, and constantly thinking of us. Please keep the vibes coming. On behalf of PJ, I thank you!

P.J.’s Mom here with the latest update. The Doctor told us that this 50 day round would be the most difficult of the entire treatment and, for the most part, P.J. handled it pretty well. Unfortunately, on day 46 he ended up in the hospital and remains there today. He has pneumonia and is struggling with ongoing high fevers. Fortunately he did complete the 50 day treatment today. It’s hard to fight pneumonia or even the common cold when all of his blood cells have been wiped out by the chemo so this hospital stay may take a while. Please continue to keep P.J. in your thoughts and prayers. Going forward, the course of treatment is that he will have a few weeks break and begin the next round mid January. Send those positive vibes and I will send updates more regularly as we have things to share. Thank you!

Dear PJ, I'm sorry we did not get to see you while we were visiting but am glad we spoke.  Even my littlest boy was asking for Uncle PJ.  Please continue to fight and stay strong.  I know you will beat this.  You have always been so strong.  I hope you can get better and come visit us in Seoul.  I love you little brother.  Hannah
