Chemo 3, LP and BM Results

First of all, thank you for all the prayers, e mails, text messages, cards and general well wishes that we have received from our family and friends - it means so much to us and is very uplifting during those sad moments.
Paige had her third lot of what I call Big Chemo yesterday, which is Vincristine and Daunorubicin, and she was quite happy, smiling and playing this morning. She even wandered around the lounge pulling and throwing everything on the floor - nice to see her back to her usual self, even if it was just for 10 minutes!

The consultant phoned yesterday with good news: there was NO evidence of the disease in the Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) prior to the administration of her chemo yesterday (via LP) and most of all her bone marrow seems to be recovering and producing small amounts of platelets and white blood cells. While this is not considered remission, it is an indicator that she is responding well to her chemo - which is great news! She continues to look well albeit pale, and we're still enjoying being at home.
