Just thought I would keep you all updated.
My wife’s neutrophils levels are slow to rise compared to her other cells so the consultant ordered a bone marrow biopsy. After an agonising 2 day wait we got some good news!
The FLAG IDA has worked it’s magic and the early signs are that her blasts have reduced to 2% which is essentially remission, they are cautiously optimistic as there are still some test results they are waiting on however it is the best news I could have hoped for and to be honest the first time I’ve genuinely been happy in 10 long weeks.
They have agreed to let her home for a break for a couple of weeks dependent on the other results , she will have some outpatient appointments in the meantime then go back in for a 2nd course of FLAG IDA then it’s on to the stem cell transplant.
It is early days on a long road to recovery but a little win. And someone recently said to me it’s the little wins that ultimately get you through.
Thank you all for your comments and I will keep you updated, it’s time for a nice home cooked meal for my wife and definitely a nice glass of wine!
