Bone Marrow Biopsy

I saw my hematologist today, who is working with my immunologist and the decision was made to proceed with a bone marrow biopsy and aspiration of lymphatic tissues. It is scheduled for 4/20/2011 at 10:15am.  I'm scared, but believe that we'll finally get answers to some abnormalities that have surfaced over the last bit of time.  I've been sleeping 15 hours of 24 for the last few days. I'm just so tired. It's only gotten worse.

As promised yesterday, here are some photos:

Thinking of you, my friend. It's difficult dealing with the anticipation of resolution, but if anyone can do it with grace and's you. :-)

Good luck with the biopsy. I'm a new reader. I linked to you from Jen Vanderpools blog. I have a blog, but I also work for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I have met TONS of people who have had bone marrow biopsies. If you're nervous ask for some Ativan or Xanax. It takes the edge off a bit.
Love the pictures!

Thanks so much Stacey... They are going to give me Xanax... I'm nervous but really trust my doctor. I am looking forward to answers, but scared of what they might be...
Thanks for coming by
