Test Results

Elena's wonderful doctor shared her test results with us yesterday.
Here's what he said:
"The results of Elena's viral tests are back. They are suspicious for a viral infection, however, they are not 100% confirmatory....I’m cautiously optimistic this is indeed just an infection."

"Bottom line to me is that the results make it even MORE likely this is viral, but not quite enough to exclude leukemia as a possibility—so assuming her counts are similar next month, then we should get the bone marrow out of the way & make sure it’s not relapse. If her counts rebound significantly, we’ll cancel (the bone marrow test) that day."

Please continue to pray for Elena and our family.
It is hard to continue to wait and wonder.

  1. Christy,
    I am just now getting caught up with your posts as I had no idea what has been going on. Prayers are being lifted up for all of you and especially for no relapse. Thanks for the updates and will be thinking about you on the 20th. Hang in there!
