Woo Hoo!!!

The MRD (minimum residual disease) test results just came back and they are negative (which is a good thing)!!!! The MRD test looks at what is going on in the bone marrow and studies have shown that if the MRD is negative at the end of the induction phase the prognosis is better!! We also received confirmation about the blasts and they are at 2%, which is also a great number (anything under 5% is good). These test results mean that Ben is in the average risk category.
We have some big decisions coming up...but I am too happy to stress about that at the moment.

Ben's got those bad cells running away as quickly as possible. They know he's just too tough for them!
HOORAY! for strong Mommy, Daddy, David, AND Ben!
