Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer The Beatles

You gotta pays your dues
If you want to sing the blues
And you know it don't come easy

Ringo Starr

The news about my engraftment status may come as soon as tomorrow. It is so critical. Without the new DNA usurping my old marrow, this has been a tale, to quote Macbeth, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. With a good engraftment, I am that much closer to a cure.

The lab lost my immunophenotyping, so I won't know my CLL status for awhile.

This is a difficult patch, this waiting, again.

My routine labs showed little change today. Home next week still looks likely. Don't feel much like writing today. Need to meditate and focus. 

Your messages, emails, cards, and prayers are so valuable and helpful. I treasure and value them all, and do not discount their role in my recovery. Thank you again.

G-d bless.

Keep going! Keep going! Somehow vicariously, I live in a dream world through you. In my dream, I had the transplant, and I am losing my hair, and I am praying for the engraftment. And, like you, I am cured. Only yours is not a dream, yours is real and you are on your way to this being one day closer to C*U*R*E*D. Nancy

Sorry to hear that they lost your immunophenotyping. Did they use bone marrow or blood? MD Anderson uses a laser-based instrument that gives results in a few hours. When I was there my Flow Cytometry was available within 24 hours. I was impressed.

Your CLL Friend
