It worked!!

Dr. Crim just came in and told me that the pathologist saw no evidence of leukemia cells in my bone marrow! What that means is the chemo did it's job in killing off the leukemia cells. We made it past the first big hurtle. Now we have to wait for my counts and my bone marrow to recover, then we will do one more bone marrow biopsy to check to see if the new cells are free of leukemia. All the prayers worked!!! I was so happy to hear this news I started crying. I was trying very hard not to think about it becuase I would end up worrying myself sick over it. Now I can breathe easy for the rest of the time here and continue to pray that my next bone marrow biopsy continues to show no evidence of leukemia cells. I still need the prayers so please continue to pray for my complete recovery.
