Chantzaly,
sounds like cml but I'm not a hemotologist.if it is they may discuss Gleevec
which is an absolute wonder drug for many w/your condition.It is considered
the first drug of choice by many and sometimes the only treatment.BMB are
not fun,but the greater skill level the better,plus lots of happy drugs.Best of
luck and Happy Birthday!

Thanks for the info Berry - they didn't do too well on the happy drugs - this one was pretty painful - they had trouble getting the piece of bone through the needle and had to do it 3 times :mad: I wasn't too happy about that. I'll find out today what the results are. Thanks for the Birthday wish - that was sweet :jester: :D
