Maya went in for the procedure about 9 am and was in recovery by 1030.
True to her personality, she was not sad, scared, or defeated… she was f#@*ing pissed off! (Her temper goes to eleven 😉
Now It’s 1115am and she’s resting comfortably with mommy watching Frozen for the third time in 24 hours.
Here are the details:
She needed extra bone tissue to be taken because her marrow was too thick and sort of “stuffed” with the leukemia cells. They took two pieces of her hip (both sides). Spinal tap went fine. The extra biopsy might need more time to diagnose because it takes a while to break down the bone. Doesn’t seem any worse…just might take longer to establish a plan of care. She’ll likely be in some pain for a couple days. Blood pressure is running high but it could be her fluid overload. She is being monitored very closely.
(just checked blood pressure again and it’s much improved)

That strength of personality will serve her well through all this, although it may at times try her parents’ will. Glad she did ok. ♡
