The universe smiled and all's right with the world. Wednesday medical update 10-29

Well, maybe that is somewhat of an over statement. But it's a lovely day! The preliminary results of my biopsy look good. There are no blasts floating around in my bone marrow. This is a good thing. Now we wait for the DNA and that will be around 6 weeks. Also, my counts looked good enough today that the doc CANCELLED my transfusion. That has never happened before. Typically I go and find I unexpectedly have to get a transfusion. While my counts would be low for a well person, for me they were good. I am not scheduled to go back until Monday.

So although it is quite cold here, the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Thank you all so much for your good wishes. Not finding stray blasts was a real relief. Now I just have to wait for the DNA results. Of course we're hoping those haven't deteriorated any more, but I don't intend to spend the next 6 weeks worrying about it. To quote Robbie Burns, "I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep."
