GREAT NEWS!!!!!

Friday March 26, 2010

What a way to kick off the weekend you guys!!!

I just got to my office and received a text from Mark. He's at his Friday morning doctor's appointment. Last Friday was his 2nd bone marrow biopsy, and so we've been waiting all week to find out what's up. His text said "the bone marrow biopsy shows no signs of the disease at all, I'm considered to be in "total remission"..." Which means that he is totally greenlit for his transplant to happen asap.

Mark's sis Jeanne has gone through her barrage of testing and we're just waiting to hear that she's ok and healthy too; and once that happens, they'll harvest the stem cells from her blood, and Mark will receive them asap. Then, we'll be counting the days that we're "out from transplant". I'M personally counting the days until I can start saying (and typing and texting) "Day 1 from transplant"...(and so on, and so on, and so on).

Today though everyone...is a milestone. I believe it's something to celebrate and be very happy for. Today we focus on the positive, we give thanks for the good things that have happened, and we keep moving forward.

Love to you all.

-Leslie (& Mark)
