Wow, I knew my sister was strong, but watching her today, I realized just how much. The biopsy was pretty painful. Melanie was so brave! I was with her when she had it. She held her worry stones tight. I watched as they did several shots to numb her and then use this devise to bore through her bone to draw out some marrow and a piece of her bone. I felt so sorry for her. It was quite an ordeal. I could tell that there were some really painful moments. She did GREAT though! As you can imagine she was pretty tired and spent after that. She is so very thankful for everyone's thoughts and prayers. I know all the words of encouragement go a long way. So we should we know tomorrow what the next phase of her journey will be. We will keep you all posted.
Her counts are continuing to go up. Her platelets were at 142,000 (8,000 below normal), and she had 300 neutraphils. That is some good news. The doctors are pleased with how the numbers are going. Keep it up Mel!
Get some sleep my dear sister........ You are so brave & inspiring! Keep up your fight! We are all behind you! I love you!
