Update from Grace: Grace got the result from the spinal tap, and it shows that no leukemia cells have penetrated to her spine and brain! So we have one big worry less. Also, her white blood cell composition looks just fine (the total count was just below 4000, which is the lower limit for normal). She hasn’t had the bone marrow biopsy yet, she will have that on Tuesday morning and then go up to the ward to start the second round of chemo on Tuesday night. For the next 4 weeks, she will spend the first week at the hospital for the chemo, and then go back and forth between the hospital and home for checkups a couple of times per week. We’ll keep you updated about the progress.
In the midst of this illness, Grace feels so grateful to have the caring support from her parents and brothers, especially her mom. This illness has really strengthened the bond between her and her family. She is also so grateful for the continuous blessings and support
