We're sitting here at VGH while Richard is getting his blood tranfusion. The doctor that did the bone marrow biopsy came in early on.
-It's Leukemia. He'll be starting chemo soon (which I guess is kind of good in a way too).
-They are still finding out more specifics. He said that the reason for the dry tap was that there were a lot of bad cells. The question is is that just a certain area where it's full of bad cells or are there bad cells in many places.
The Good (kind of)
-It's AML Acute Myeloid Leukemia which is the more common one that something like 80% of adults with Leukemia have. It brings us even more hope that Richard will pull through very well. We'll keep our fingers crossed.
It looks like we get to go home today. Richard's transfusion will take us until about 3pm, I figure. We're just waiting to hear when we come back for him to get his Hickman Line, his heart ultrasound, and for him to start the chemo.
And we wait.
Thanks again for all your love.
