Remember that yesterday we said the blasts were “leaving.” We knew there was a possibility there would be more.

The sample yesterday showed none, today there is a small amount.

Still good news! The important thing is the chemo is working and killing off the blasts.

She will have platelets today in order to prepare for tomorrow. Speaking of, tomorrow is Day 15 which means it’s her scheduled LP day.

Based on the past attempts, they have already decided to use general anesthesia this time.

Plus, it will be done in a sterile procedure room rather than Avery’s hospital room.

That is scheduled for sometime in the morning. She won’t be able to eat after midnight.

Keep praying for full remission and no infections.

Pray specifically that the LP goes smooth tomorrow and that no leukemia cells are found in her spinal fluid.
