It only took, a week and a half, two phone calls, a text, a ton of worry and one visit to my Doctor to finally get the results of my Bone Marrow Biopsy.
The new test can track all the way to residual sequences detected per million nucleated cells and I have 2,799 lingering F***ers per million cells still residing somewhere in my body.
This new test concludes that I have not achieved remission, but hold your horses, that’s not what the standard test reveals, so we are going with that.
My Doctor along with other clinicians still do not know what to do with these new detailed test except to up our chemo doses and hope that in 6 months I will have another Bone Marrow Biopsy that will be clear.
And I am relieved.
I’d like to hear that no cancer can be detected, but I am one of the lucky ones. My body has responded to a Stem Cell Transplant and being on a chemo maintenance program, so there is so much to be grateful for.
I just refuse to give those residual F***ers any more of my energy, instead focusing on what a miracle the rest of my good cells are.
So here’s to hope for a great future and I’m thinking a new pair of shoes, to celebrate that this fashionista still has many new outfits ahead!
