"there are no bad cells. Not even a hint of any. But I'd bought a one-way ticket to Alaska just in case there was".
So, Doc Tebbi's preliminary results is there is zero evidence of relapse in his marrow. Of course that is preliminary from Doc Tebbi looking at the pathology slides, but to quote him again - "I've looked at slides for many years, and I've not gone bananas just yet".
So yes, we have to wait for the lab results "officially". But nobody here has reason to doubt Doc Tebbi viewing sample slides from two different spots.
Most likely all antibiotics will be stopped tonight, then bloodwork check at the usual time tomorrow. Doc Tebbi says the results of that may have him released tomorrow of the next day.
More later. Needless to say there is a big "YIPPEE" from here!
Still feels like crap. Still ain't talkin', but this is about the biggest relief and best news possible today.
