    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Completely out of the blue. I had no symptoms but a low white cell count on a routine blood test taken during a physical. When that persisted, a bone marrow biopsy showed AML.

    Bone marrow transplant or no transplant

    Decision Point

    We decided to start the transplant process instead of continuing with Chemo.

    No sibling donor match

    Oh No

    Lack of a sibling donor means that we have to pursue an unrelated donor, and I am told the search can take a long time. I may have to have that 4th consolidation chemo after all if it takes too long to make sure I stay in remission.
