The Result

Mar Ma, Daddy, Mummy and Allegra were in our room when Doctor Marty (our Oncologist) walked in and said "we have the results from the Trephine".
I didn't look at him, I looked to the roof, breathed in and heard the words "at this stage Allegra is in remission, she does not require a bone marrow transplant".   We will go ahead and do the next 2 courses of chemotherapy.  This is the best result it could possibly be,  Allegra's marrow looks good.
I grabbed Dr Marty and hugged him, forgetting that he has a bad back and requires surgery.  Oops.  My little Allegra is just so clever and amazing and I am so proud of her.  My goodness I can't believe we have finally received some good news.
Thank you for all your wishes, good thoughts and prayers.  
Allegra and I thank each and every one of you.
I need bubbles!!! Aah those words... "Allegra is in remission" It is lovely to hear the words and not just dream them. We heard the words!!!!
