Drumroll please…

Well, I got my bone marrow biopsy on Thursday (along with a bunch of other tests), and sister who’s donating to me got a bunch of tests. The results we have so far look fine, so the key thing will be my bone marrow biopsy. If it shows that the Vidaza has decreased the amount of malignant cells, as I think is likely, we’ll go ahead with the transplant. I should hear sometime between Monday and Thursday morning (when I and my dad meet with the MDS specialist at Hopkins).

In between now and Thursday, the radiation oncologists will do some last-minute consulting about the total body irradiation part of the prep regimen, given my pre-existing radiation damage to my spinal cord (damage about which I’m not complaining–the lymphoma never came back, after all, and I can still walk a mile a day with a cane for balance).

I feel like I’m at the top of the roller coaster…
