Melanie had her lumbar today. So she has been poked and prodded pretty darn good the last couple days. She is feeling pretty tired and has had a chemo headache. But it all went well. She is just a trooper. She was going to do the post tonight but is pretty beat. So, I just typed for her. Below is her post. :)

Bone marrow is juicy and looks good! So things are considered to be in remission at the moment. Which means the leukemia is clear but there is still work to do to ensure it doesn't come back. My platelets are finally in the normal range. They were 178,000 today. The red blood cells are winning the fight over the white blood cells still. So we are still waiting on nuetraphils. In all this means that I will be able to spend a few days at Greg's if those nuetraphils come. I should know in the next couples days when that might be. Th second round of chemo should start around Dec 28th. They should know about donors by Monday or Tuesday.
Thanks so much for your prayers, cards and everything else. Some of you have mentioned that you were unsure that I know who you are, I do. :) Keep the prayers a comin. Thanks so much to you all.
