Yesterday, my mom had her 6th bone marrow biopsy.
A doctor laid her on her stomach on a metal table, and used a corkscrew shaped needle the width of a pen to manually drill a whole into her hip to suck out the inside.
From here, the marrow will spin for 3-4 weeks and then we'll know if she is still truly in remission.
So, kids, cross it all for her - finger, toes, legs, eyes...whatever. Just keep her in your prayers, please.
