Mark Jeanes having been originally scheduled for the bone marrow biopsy today, December 19, was thrilled to hear that he will instead have to wait until tomorrow: his parents however were not so thrilled. Seems that they are tired of the stay and the unknown, to wit; the original diagnosis that the oncology team was 90% certain of was Burkitt's Lymphoma. They now have redacted that "for sure diagnosis" in favor of the the, "who knows diagnosis." The Gold Standard of Leukemia and Lymphoma diagnostics is the Bone Marrow Biopsy and that (they say) will either definitively say there is or isn't a cancer. Can you imagine the emotion James and Lynette are experiencing. Normally a person needs to purchase a roller-coaster ticket for this kind of ride.


Lynette wants all of you to know how deeply she appreciates the many kindnesses and thoughts and prayers everyone has put forth.
