Bone Marrow Biopsy

No....no results yet. But the procedure went fairly smoothly. When we first walked in the room and the nurses started looking at her arms to decide where to start the IV, I could tell that they were a little perplexed because her arms were already so bruised from being in the hospital. They tried once in the arm (where it bends) with no success and then they were able to get it in her wrist. So the NP comes in to do the biopsy and when the nurse tries to push the sedation medication into the IV, it won't go in. Something happened and now that IV wouldn't work. So they try again on the other arm and just when they were about to give up on that vein, the nurse has success and the doctor says "put the medication in right away....." So we leave the room while they do the aspiration and a few minutes later they come to get us. I guess she never completely went out but enough that they were able to do their thing. The poor girl's arms are just a mess. So now we will wait for the results. The good news is that her Hemoglobin has come up even higher since she left the hospital which means she is producing it. Of course her platelets are lower again but still at an okay level. Sigh.........
