Anniversary Bone Marrow - all done!

Oscar's bone marrow aspiration is "all done", as Oscar likes to say. He also had his second flu vaccine shot while he was under anesthetic. His bloods are stable. I'm not sure but I think he won't need another bone marrow aspiration for another 12 months, all being well. He's had so, so many and its great to have another milestone behind us.

When he has blood taken now he walks into the room and says VERY LOUDLY to the nurse, "Don't hurt me". When she continues to get the needle ready he repeats it a number of times and finally gets up real close to her face and says, "Plleeaassee, don't hurt me". It makes the nurse feel very bad but I absolutely love his ability to stand up for himself and get himself heard in a place where it is so easy to become your patient number. They all adore him in there and when he gets home he walks in the door and states, again very loudly, "Had fun with Donna and Margaret" - meaning Dr Margaret, of course. Its a testament to the incredible job they do that he can go to the clinic and have a nasty bone marrow aspiration and come home to declare how much fun he had. We are so lucky to have such wonderful people to share this journey with.

All is well. Thanks for checking in on us.
