Hey, just got back from Onc. visit, while my white count's are still low they did come up from the last visit which is good. My doctor said she stills wants to do a bone marrow biopsy, to be 100% sure that I'm still in remission. She also said I still may need the Spinal Tap, if the Univer. of Penn thinks it's necessary. I go there tomorrow morning. So all and all not bad considering. It definitely sucks that I have to do these procedures again, but it's the deck I have been dealt........................... Vinny

    Happy
    Hi Vinny,
    I hope you won't have to go through all of the procedures again, but if thats what it takes to keep you progressing forward, then thats what you will have to do. You've come too far and worked too hard! With that being said..I'll still keep my fingers crossed that you "won't" have to go through too much more!! Let us know what they say after you get back from Penn University. Always thinking good thoughts for you!...

    Not bad news at all
    Vinny,
    Actually its not bad news at all with the blood counts being a little higher. As long as they don't go down. Its rough having to think about those tests that are upcoming though. I know its like you say, Its the hand we were dealt, but it never hurts to have a a couple of aces up your sleeve, right? We just got a new lady named Andrea and she is right where I was a few months ago. So glad she found all of us. John (FNHL-1-4A-5/10)

    Vinny,
    I hear what you are saying about a relapse,but what is good is that we are all being watched more closely now. I do understand what you are saying though. I would be the same way. John (FNHL-1-4A-5/10)
