That's how the nurse described the bone marrow biopsy to Sam: a little owie. I admit, we didn't really go into detail about it or the lumbar puncture (aka spinal tap) that went along with it. Vague explanations seemed to suffice for Sam's overactive imagination.
Outpatient stuff is great, in that it feels like a nice visit and then they send you home. Everything went according to plan, except that Sam had a little trouble after the anesthesia...just a crabby comedown...which is, you guessed it, somewhat normal. Oy.
So now we just rest on the laurels of the good lab numbers and wait for the biopsy results, expected on Tuesday and followed by admission expected on Wednesday.
Wishing you all a Shabbat as quiet and peaceful as I hope ours will be. Shabbat shalom!
PS see below for pictures...Sam in the pirate hat garnered him a ton of attention in the hospital and the other collage is of the fancy duds that Michael got to wear to go back with Sam while they put him to sleep. How funny that Michael needed to wear all that stuff and Sam wore his own clothes and even his shoes for the whole procedure!!!
