Checking off the List

Averi's bone marrow biopsy and aspiration went very smoothly today.  Thankfully it is a very short procedure and the anesthesiologist was able to just put a mask on her instead of having to intubate.  That makes the recovery so much easier and faster since her throat is so flimsy to begin with and irritating it makes it really hard for her to breathe.  By the time she was brought back from recovery she was sitting up and acting like nothing had happened.

Now for the waiting.  The final results take a whole week to come back but the preliminary results take 2 days and if they look clean then we can go ahead and schedule a time for her central line to be taken out.  That means that if everything runs smoothly she could get her line out on Friday.  I know it's a long shot but it would be really nice to enjoy fourth of July weekend with a lot less worries.
