Day +103 “The Bone Marrow Biopsy Results”

Monday, March 25, 2008 (late post)

What everybody has been waiting for the official bone marrow biopsy report:

Diagnosis:

BONE MARROW (ASPIRATE, CLOT, CORE BIOPSY, AND PERIPHERAL BLOOD):

- NORMOCELLULAR BONE MARROW WITH TRILINEAGE HEMATOPOIESIS.

- NO MORPHOLOGIC EVIDENCE OF ACUTE LEUKEMIA, SEE COMMENT.

COMMENT: Flow cytometric analysis on marrow aspirate provides no immunophenotypic evidence of a hematolymphoid malignancy.


Translation: NO cancer cells detected. I am still in REMISSION!

I can’t even being to describe the feelings I had as I read and re-read this report. I sat there and cried for a few minutes. First was a moment of disbelief. Then sheer happiness and gratitude. I felt this huge weight lifted from me, the weight of worry was gone. I was still in REMISSION. And next week we will receive the genetic testing (STR) that will confirm that Donor cells (Tracy’s cells) continue to produce healthy, cancer free cells and that Recipient cells (my cells) are no longer present.

I am so grateful for the love and support I have received during this time. So many of you, too many to many here, right now, have given me the encouragement to continue on and inspired me through your faith and hope.

I know each and every day that I have is such a precious gift and they are blessed by each of you. Thank you!

I love sharing such wonderful news. I will be visiting the clinic on Thursday and will have more to share then.
