01 May 2007, Bone Marrow Test

I had a bone marrow test today, to see if the cancer has moved to the marrow. It wasn't too painful, actually. It kinda hurt, but the doc did a good job of numbing everything up real good. I won't go in to details, cause I don't want to make anyone sick, but it sounds worse than it actually was. The doc said I have very thick, healthy bones. Which is a good thing. I won't know the results for a few weeks, but I'm hopeful that everything is alright. Now, I just have to look forward to the PET scan and the Port to be put in, and the "hard" part is over with. I really hope the chemo-therapy isn't too bad. As my brother said though " just think of it as a six month diet plan." Guess that's a good way to look at it.

But as for now, everything is alright. Just looking forward to a little vacation next week in Dayton, Ohio, then on with the tough part (chemo), which will probably wreck my summer. O'well, life goes on. Hope everyone is doing good.
