Some Partial Results

I emailed Ella's oncologist to see if he had any results back yet. I didn't figure the bone marrow would be in yet but I was hoping to at least find out how her platelets looked. Here is what he emailed me back...

"Her marrow looks good and does not show leukemia. I don't have chromosome results yet. Ella should have her blood counts checked next week and fax us the results. Have a good weekend!"


Okay, so great news about the bone marrow for now. I know the chromosome results are what gives more long term info so we still have to nervously wait on those. I wish he would have mentioned SOMETHING about the platelets though. I put a call in to his care coordinator to see if she can get that info for me.....I will update you more if I find anything else out.

Sounds good so far! Would that test (genetic) be called cytogenetic test? Carly had that done too. Back in June with her bone marrow biopsy.

We are debating on getting a second opinion now. Not really because of leukemia. More so for answer to the platelet issues. I just can't be at ease knowing Carly has some sort of platelet disorder. I want to know what, how, why, etc... Our NP emailed me the other day and offered to order an ultra sound of the spleen. That would give them another piece of information. As to, if the spleen is functioning properly. We're still talking everything over. Darn platelets.

I hope your weekend is fabulous!
Ella's expressions are priceless.

Lovely pics.. Last pic is my fav.

Michelle said...

So far, so good! I hope and pray all is well and the low platelets are just a fluke thing. So if her chromosomal results are good, did they give you any other reason for abnormally low platelets?? Sorry I was MIA during all this for Ella, but know you were in our thoughts and prayers as you always are! HOpe to see you guys next month!!!!!!
