Since my appointment at the hematologists at 9:45 this morning the following news has spread like wildfire, so I figured I would at least let everyone know as much as we do.
I had a bone marrow biopsy done on Monday (super duper painful by the way! Dr. A said I have unusually hard bones...ha!). I have had a total of 3 blood draws (from Dr A's office) and each one showed my hemoglobin's, white blood cells & platelets dropping. Then during today's blood draw the lab testing my bone marrow called and we were told my bone marrow has abnormal cancerous cells.
They haven't identified a type yet and are still running more tests. So, Dr A sent me to the hospital right away for CT scans of my chest, abdomen & pelvis to look for tumors as a possible cause of the cancerous cells. He already called back and said the scans were all normal. The next plan of action is that Dr A already called the Cleveland Clinic and has referred me up there. I'm just waiting for a call from them to set up a first appointment.
I am still optmistic that since they have yet to pin-point exactly what type of cancer it is, that it will be an easy one to beat, especially through faith & prayers!
I would definitely appreciate any prayers and lots of good thoughts. Thanks everyone!
