Now that was a surprise...

Adam's bone marrow tests went better than at any time since he first underwent the procedure last July. This was the 6th time - he's becoming something of a veteran.

When he came round (from the general anaesthetic) there was the normal screaming and shouting for a while, mainly because they hadn't put the plasters where he'd told them too. I'm sure wherever they put them it would've been wrong. He whacked his Mum a couple of times. And he insisted on keeping his trousers and pants round his ankles whilst he was having his GCSF. But there wasn't the same level of discomfort and he didn't have to be helped back into the car afterwards. He even managed to have a play outside which was the last thing I expected him to be doing tonight. Hopefully he won't start to feel any worse tomorrow.

Now we wait for the results.

Best hope? Realistically, bone marrow clear so we can go for a stem cell harvest. We'll take that at this stage. Nobody is expecting his MIBG scan to be clear.
