Bone Marrow aspirates, MIBG and MRI

As usual Reba was a super trooper today (5/9/19). It was a long day but all in all went well.

Her first procedure was the bone marrow aspirates, two samples from her lower back. Her back is sore but not too bad.

She then had the MIBG and MRI scans. About 5 hours under anesthesia.

We are very grateful that today we had an anesthesiologist who really listened to us about our conservative approach to drugs. There were no surprises when we came back to the recovery room, she only received the propofol and Tylenol.

Next Tuesday 5/14 we will be back to review the results with a new Attendee…🤞🙏

This was after two IV starts! Reba is so positive and able to move on quickly.
