Almost Perfect!!!!

I just spoke with my UVA doc and he had the test results. He said they did 4 different tests and in all of them I had only  ONE single abnormal cell. I am 100% donor bone marrow again and 100% donor blood! When they grew out my cells to check for my cellular irregularity I had one bad cell out of 200. So the news is excellent. He thinks I'll have 2 more chemo rounds, a dose of donor cells, 2 more chemos, a bone marrow biopsy and blood work and then two more rounds of chemo. The protocol may change but at this point that's what they are planning.
So- things look great.
It takes a village and I thank all of you. I'll continue being as diligent as I can be and kick that one freaky cell to the curb!

Big Test today

So we went to VCU for the bone marrow biopsy and blood tests. We'll know something in 2 weeks. Oy. I'm feeling good- the next chemo round starts in a week from weds so I'm feeling good and making art, spending time with Thomas and James and enjoying the last week of no school!
I'll update when I know something. Thank you again for all your positive thoughts and encouragement. It makes me feel like I'm in the middle of something rather than alone.
