1. Maryanne has made a FULL remission, they found 1 blast in her bone marrow today, anything under 5 is remission. The blast they found is a myloid blast which is a baby white blood cell NOT a leukemia cell but they still have to consider it a blast.
    On to the next phase of chemo, which is still very brutal. This phase will last 6 to 7 months. Hopefully she will stay in REMISSION and not have any relapses. Keep praying, it's working!!!!!
    She is going back to the hospital on Tuesday for 3-5 days and she'll do this every three weeks.
