I spoke with the doctor about 20 minutes ago. I asked how do we know if she has achieved remission. She went to through the plan with me and on the 28th day here (around Aug 3 or so) we do another bone marrow aspirate. As of yesterday her leukemia blasts (? cells from what I understand) are currently at 7%. She said that she is coming along perfectly. She is currently on her last chemo of her induction phase (first month of chemo). We stay here for 20 more days to monitor blood lose and infections.
