Some great news ahead of the Easter break - yesterday I was over at The Churchill for bloods to be taken and also a bone marrow sample to check progress.
Blood numbers have been trending in the right direction for a while and a bit earlier today we got the call from the hospital indicating that under the microscope they cannot see the leukaemia cells and that I am in remission.
Naturally I'm not out of the woods yet, it will be a couple of weeks yet before we know whether the Philadelphia chromosome condition is under control.
Going forward, next week is a clear week but the week after that will be the start of Phase 2 Induction - quite intense as it's 4 days a week at the hospital for chemo, I'll blog more when I've looked into it!
In the meantime the quest for a bone marrow donor continues as does the investigation into other avenues now such as stem cells from umbilical cord blood.
Anyways that's a subject for another post, I'm still a little zoned out from yesterday's sedation & procedures but wishing you all a happy Easter!
