Ouch!

Brandon had a bone marrow biopsy today....one step closer to the transplant.
The objective is to find out 100% that he is in remission.

Tough procedure!!!!
Basically, the Dr freezes his hip (deep under the skin along the bone line), then sticks a type of corkscrew into his back and twists, and pushes, and twists, and pushes....until he releases a piece of bone to pull out for testing.

Brandon was quite nervous, but with clenched teeth and a few moans he came through only slightly injured. Sore now...and probably for a few more days.

My brave prince - as always :)
