Bone Marrow Test

Dear All,

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. I did, and was a very happy bunny to wake up (lets be honest, was woken up at around midday) and see everywhere covered with snow!!! For those of you who don't know, I LOVE the snow soooooooo much! And it was really thick and settled EVERYWHERE!!! Unfortunately it melted by the end of the day...why is snow ALWAYS followed by the sun???? But not before I had a fun time with my camera!

Ok, bone marrow test. Not as painful as I thought. Having the anasthetic was by far and away the most painful bit. (stang like fuck!) But after that was blissully unaware of anything. This is a good thing, cause the doctor tested to see if the anasthetic had kicked in by jabbing a sharp needle into me!! I thank god it had kicked in by then!

I get the results in a week to 10 days, so might get them when I have my chek up next Thurs. By then I will have finnished all my uni work for ever, WOOP!!! All my friends are highly jealous that I'm not sitting exams, but me thinks they would rather that they had their finals rather than swap the last year with me. They are just a little bit stressed at the moment and see that I am nearly fancy free and footloose, and on that note, I'm jetting off to the U S of A on the 22nd for 6 days and I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!

Well I think that's everything for the mo. I had written more, but stupidly managed to delete it. This autosaves, but I have nooooooooooo idea how to get to it, and have what I wrote before....nevermind!!

Oh I know what I wrote, the reason they do the bone marrow test is to see if the chemo is working at a more molecular level, and encouraging the body to go into remission rather than the chemo just killing off cells. If it's the latter, I think they start to think abut a bone marrow transplant, but I'm sure I won't be needing one of those!

Me thinks that's it til next thursday when I have my check up.

Hope all is well with everyone!

Lots of love, laughter and smiles,
