So, I had my bone marrow biopsy, CAT scan, MRI and spinal tap. None of them were that fun to say the least. CAT scan and MRI came back good. I have no tumors growing and my brain looks good. Bone marrow biopsy also shows no leukemia in my bone marrow. This is all good news.
During the spinal tap, they extracted some spinal fluid, about 2 oz and also injected 2 oz of chemo directly into my spine. They ran test on the extracted fluid and have found leukemic cells in my spinal fluid. This means that the leukemia has entered my central nervous system (CNS). This is why I am having double vision and currently need to wear an eye patch.
Treatment for the CNS infiltration will be every two days, they will give me a spinal tap, extract 2 oz of spinal fluid from my spine (which by the way is crystal clear), and inject my spine with 2 oz of chemo fluid. They may also start me on my consolidation chemo while I am in here. This is where chemo is dripped in via IV into my arm. Still waiting on that decision.
Aside from that, pretty quite here at Maine Med. Crystal is home sick today. She has some respiratory infection going on :( Get better soon hun... We are not sure what all this means yet, but I will update the blog as as soon as I find out.
