Stem Cell Transplant: First Steps

Rob will be going through quiet a few tests in the next few weeks, to make sure he the can tolerate a stem cell transplant.  As with other posts on the blog, we are sharing these details with family, friends and others who are on the same or similar journey. 

This afternoon, Rob had his first test, which was a bone marrow biopsy. The oncologist hopes the plasma percentage decreases significantly from his first bone marrow biopsy back in September. We should know the results in a week.

The bone marrow test today and the upcoming PET scan will show how the myeloma is responding to the chemo. Other upcoming tests include heart and lung function tests, to make sure all is well for the stem cell transplant.

Yesterday, we met our stem cell transplant coordinator, and he is walking us through every step of the way.  We are thankful for his guidance!

Thank you for the sweet words of encouragement and love!! It means so much!!
