bone marrow biopsy

Hi everyone! Just want you to know that I had a PET scan on Monday and today at 11 a.m. EST I’m having a bone marrow biopsy. These are the last two tests before heading into the transplant. This has been an extremely stressful week for me, and I just want to ask that you pray for not only the physical but also the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. Pray that God would renew my mind, that I would set my thoughts on Him, His Mighty Power and Strength, and that I would be refreshed by Him.

Here’s the calendar for the days to come:
May 9 – Bone Marrow Biopsy

May 16 – meeting with my oncologist and coordinator in Lexington to go over the entire stem cell transplant process and any final preparations before being admitted

May 28 – admitted into the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center in Lexington

May 28 through probably June 3 – receive high-dose chemotherapy to obliterate any cancer that is left

June 4 – receive the stem cells from my donor and start fresh with a brand-new immune system

I will try and write more later today or tomorrow once I feel better after the biopsy. Thank you so much for your prayers!!
