I just had my second non sedated bone marrow test- it went fine! Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts, I know they are what is getting me through this all so smoothly!
One part of it was more uncomfortable than my previous experience but like the machine I am I said he could just power on- handled like a pro if I do say so myself haha!

So tomorrow I have my last dose of Vincristine, which marks the beginning of the last week of treatment in the ‘Induction’ phase. In this last week will they be tapering off the steroids and I don’t have to have the other drug Danorubicin. I can’t believe the first segment is almost over!
After that week ends it is a waiting game; waiting for the results of the bone marrow test to see what the next treatment regime will be and monitoring to see if my levels increase enough for some time at home before the next phase called Consolidation starts. 

Since my aunty comes to stay every Sunday night, she thought it would be nice to bring some nail varnish and paint my nails each week. It's a lovely thing that we spend time bonding and chatting over. She looked after me a lot when I was a year old whilst mum and dad were working, so I love that we have this opportunity to create a more adult relationship.
