Here's the short news about my biopsy: The marrow was mostly free of blast cells. What few blast cells they did see, they were unable to identify. These cells could either be young new cells or the few remaining Stupid Leukemic Cells that apparently managed to avoid detection by the Zombie Warrior.
Monday afternoon, more definitive information about the cells will be available. If the cells are the old diseased ones, the prevailing assumption is that the chemo is taking a little longer to finish the job. Another bone marrow biopsy would be in my near future (YEAH! My pelvic bone will be swiss cheese.) to see if those cells finally get wiped out.
There we are.
Today, I've had a new fun development here in LeukemiaTown. My doctor switched up one of my antibiotics on Friday. Apparently, I'm allergic to this antibiotic. My arms, torso, and thighs are covered in a bright red rash. My face is as red as a strawberry and feels like it's sunburned. There's a weird metallic taste in my mouth.
Yeah, life is good. Whoop. Whoop.
Finally, if anyone wants to add me to a healing ritual or prayer service, go right ahead. I need all the help I can get.
