Preliminary results look great
Just received the call from our one and only amazing Dr. Jen Pope, and the preliminary results look great. She said "all three lines look great". They did not see any leukemic blasts in the marrow, all they could see is very healthy mature cells. The culture tests for bacteria will be done tomorrow but they feel pretty good that it is just her marrow saying hold on. As Angela, our nurse practitioner, so eloquently put it "BACK OFF, MAD MARROW". I love it, I think I am going to have a shirt made with just that saying on it. We all got a pretty good laugh at that in the recovery room.
Please continue to pray that these preliminary results are correct. We will not have a 100% answer until tomorrow sometime. I will post again tomorrow with the conclusive result.
Our plan as of today is: blood draw at Liberty on Tues., with an admit on Wed. to finish out this devilish phase. I truly get why they call it Delayed now.
Liz is resting pretty comfortable at home, not in too much pain from the bone marrow procedure, hopefully she will stay that way. Her ANC is still below 500 but They have given her permission to go to Mason's Red, Rhythm, and Boom on Fri.
Thank you for being faithful especially when I get weak and scared. I love all of you and YOU give me inspiration.
Blessings to all,
