Jaymun had both an LP (spinal tap) and a Bone Marrow Aspiration today.
No blasts in marrow or CSF (very good!!!) (CSF report)
There were a few monocytes in his CSF (contamination from traumatic tap? suspicious cells?)
We are waiting on further tests from the marrow aspirate, but it looked good, and his peripheral blood was good today, so they do not forsee any trouble.
Since the scary tap on the ninth it seems what we did the past two weeks helped get things under control.
We basically did a simpler regimen than back last year when I was throwing everything but the "kitchen sink" at him.
I'll post the schedule below.
After talking to the doc tonight
...we'll keep the NG tube in for now, and dose him with the concentrated tea/spice/mushroom regimen for another month.
Jaymun doesn't seem to mind the NG tube that much (see video of him eating ice-cream with Devon and Sean).
The plan is to re-check peripheral blood in two weeks, and do another spinal tap in a month.
