Because I said I would get a quick update out to let you all know what the next steps are, I figured I would post something on here seeing as how this is going to be short and sweet.
So, basically the doctor told me exactly what I expected he would. They are going to be doing more routine bone marrow biopsies over the coming months to monitor the progress that my marrow takes. The next biopsy is going to be in two or three weeks. It's really just a waiting game at this point. They can't really treat me for anything that I don't even have yet. Not only that, but the further out I can get post-transplant without them having to give me "treatment," the better off things look. Like I said, right now it's all speculation and it's really anybody's guess what may or may not happen next. In the meantime, they'll watch me close and make sure everything is copacetic.
I feel pretty good physically. People are asking me how I am feeling and such, and for all intents and purposes, I feel fairly normal. I have had an abnormal amount of pain in some of my joints that almost made me unable to move the other night. Other than that, I feel good.
