Day 29! Induction Phase is Done!

Last night, the eve of Day 29, was the last day for the
power steroids! Yeah! Today we went for our Day 29 surgery day – they did a
bone marrow aspiration, spinal chemo and spinal tap. Lenox was good getting
over there at 6 am and despite asking for food, was a trooper about not getting
to eat. It all went off smoothly and we were done a few hours later. She was
actually kind of nice to several of the nurses today. Today here are some pics.
The counts today were good, White blood cell count and ANC up from last week so
still going great in terms of fighting infection, no need for transfusions or
platelets. So we are now on one week of no steroids or chemo. On Monday the 15th
we will go in for an appt to hear the news from today, hear what our risk group
is, and then get our new schedule, or road map as they call it. Sounds like the
steroids will stay in her system a bit so we will still have some ramp down on
the emotions, etc. but now we are on the downhill path on the eating, etc.
Yeah! Thanks all for taking care of us this week!
