For Andrew: The results are in, I am much better now thank you!
For everyone else… The results of the tests from the past few weeks are in, and I am disease free!!! No leukemic cells!!!!
I now have 90% Jane’s bone marrow and 30% of my immune system back. 90% is great for this stage but they are going to give me a top up of Jane’s lymphocyte cells on 9th December, just to get me a leg up to 100% HER, and this should help prevent the chances of it happening again!! The 30% immune system is all ‘memory’ which means I should now be safe from the illnesses and infections I have had before, although I still have to be careful.
So in answer to everyone’s question ‘has the chemo and transplant worked?’ YES IT HAS and I have my life back, THANKS Jane!!! And to all of you, supporting me and encouraging me on, I can’t tell you what it has meant!!! As what I have been through, I wouldn’t wish on anyone!! Whilst I am doing my Thank You Speech I would also like to thank Zig, as he has been to all of my appointments with me and held my hand every step of the way! I think, at times it has been harder for him! Thanks bebe!!!
I did manage to ask the question ‘will I be able to have a glass of red at Christmas? And the answer… POSSIBLY!!!!! I am taking that as a defo YES, The Kings Arms, Billi, here I come, Christmas Day!!!!!
I’m still not allowed out for lunch for dinner, but I can have fish and chips from the chippy!! I am definitely ‘on the up’! xx
