You Keep It Very Clean

Monday March 21, 2022 - Day +95

Woah, two blog posts in as many days?  What's going on?

Well, turns out I don't have wait til Thursday to get the results from my Bone Marrow Biopsy.  The Flow Cytometry came back and it's clean.  Meaning, it shows that there is zero leukemia present in my bone marrow.

Here's the message from Lisa -- the best NP ever!

So that's proof that transplant #2 worked!  Like we expected anything else?  So now we can begin tapering the Tacrolimus, watching for GVHD, and proceeding with not just recovery but the path to being cured (again.)

Also, we got approval to swap the Voriconizole for the Posaconizole.  That's big because even though I spent 95% of the time in the shade yesterday at Floyd's double-header, my face feels a little burnt from the small amount of sun-exposure I got.  I think getting off the Vori will help.  Still, I just ordered this hat...

these gloves...

... actually I got two pairs of gloves: one pair with these "touch screen" fingers and one "fingerless" pair.  I also ordered a few long sleeve SPF shirts and pants.  With Little League in full swing (get it?) and travel tournaments in Sacramento the next two weekends, I'm taking every pre-caution.



  1. Whoohooo! Many congrats, JG. That is awesome news indeed. The Force is strong with Martin’s bone marrow. Here’s to continuing the recovery.

  2. Great news John ! So happy to get this update! Cheers to moving forward and continued recovery. Much love πŸ’ͺπŸΏπŸŒˆπŸ’œ

  4. Woo hoo! That's amazing news - so glad to hear it! (Also, consider a Dune Fremen costume for Halloween?) -- Neil L

  5. Kicking ass, staying safe in the sun, watching your boys play baseball --- all sounds pretty great! πŸ’—

  6. Live JG … LIVE … ywkia…a

    And with that new outfit, you will look like a delegate on the Jedi Council!
