Eenie meanie miney moe

Eenie meanie miney moe, catch a liver by the toe, if e hollers make im pay bilirubin every day...
We did get the results of the pelvis super torture biopsy from the 15th of June.
 
  
Phenotypic Abnormality Found.

Leukemia/Lymphoma phenotyping report-

A phenotypically abnormal population is detected. A Kappa monotypic plasma cell population is noted, positive for antibodies CD38, CD138.
The findings are consistant for a

PLASMA CELL NEOPLASM.

MALIGNANCY.



So, What's next?   Well, There are three choices. Three doors. Let's make a deal.

Door number one... do nothing.
I know I know, this door is the one every one swears they will choose if  they ever get THE CANCER (see Lewellen Moss' mother in law in "No country for old men" (I's 100 degrees out here, don't know anyone in El Paso and I got THE CANCER) 

Door number two, Another round of Radiation. Yeesh. Anyone familiar with Bobby's "two month nap"  will see the downside of this one.

Door number three, Chemo. Not exactly the same as the chemo from yesterday. There are dozens of new drugs to treat Plasma cell cancer, many of them are cortico steroids. It's still chemo, though.


In the mean time, another bone marrow biopsy is scheduled for the 7th.

 These are truly awful. Even though I could swear I heard "never never never again...
 The problem is that even though they can numb you, they cant numb the pressure change when the biopsy needle goes through the bone in to the marrow. When air hits the marrow. Feels like a BASEBALL BAT.
 Why yes I have been hit with a bat, he says.
 At age 11, little brother hit Bobby with a ball bat. Louisville slugger. In the forehead.

Time for this wacky liver to go. Nice we could chat.


NOTBILLYBOB thanks you for your outpouring of well wishes and prayers. Much appreciated.  Billybob, 6-28-16
