First Outpatient Visit, Part 2

We were at Cedars for about 2.5 hours. Only partial test results on the bone marrow. There are blast cells present, but they have not finished counting them. If the blast cells are less than 5% of the total cell population, then Ben does not have to have another bone marrow biopsy on Friday. Otherwise, he does. It would be unusual for the blast cells to be below the 5% threshold at this point, so this is not something to worry about. But if they don't get below 5% by next week, Ben will be in a high-risk category. So this is a big week.

I'll try to add some more about our first visit later, but I need to make dinner and help get the kids to bed.
