Relief - James is still clear

James the superhero

Today we heard from James's paediatrician that she got the final report on his bone marrow test - and he's totally clear! The cells that they saw on the previous test turn out under closer scrutiny to be Haematagones, apparently also known as Haemocytoblasts - basically they're immature cells, but they're not cancerous, so he's officially still 100% in remission! They're also not caused by a virus. What a relief it was to hear that news! We'll have our appointment with the Prof tomorrow where we'll be able to discover for more details, but it was nice not to have to wait till then!

We went out to the Spur afterwards to celebrate... thank you everyone who's been praying and writing and sending messages, it's been quite a crazy 3 weeks of waiting! We are feeling exhausted, but very very grateful!

PS - just to clarify, he does still need to carry on with his chemo as planned, but this now means everything is going according to plan, and he hasn't relapsed, which was the big worry.
