March 25th: A Day I’ll Remember 

The bone marrow biopsies are a thing of the past. It was a stressful morning as things got pushed back and I didn’t end up being taken in until 12:30. So while we waited, we took pics…obviously. 

Then I was taken in and I had to take a pic with my most fabulous doctor who has done all my spinal taps and all my bone marrow biopsies since the beginning. Not only is she the most fashionable lady at the Dana but she also is the absolute sweetest. 

Now it was time to get suited up- and tis the bunny season, I just had to…

So then it was time to chill with the silliness and get this thing some and over with!

Go time.

(Warning:this is a little graphic but Mike took it and I found it fascinating as I’ve obviously never seen it from this angle!)

And just like that, I took my last “big breath”, Susan pulled the marrow and it was over. I instantly started crying but it was tears of such joy, relief and gratitude. I felt so empowered and so strong in that moment. I have hated this procedure every time, I have always gotten so worked up before and after as I wait for the results. But the reality is, it’s out of my control now. I’ll get the results next week and I really feel deep in my heart that the leukemia is out of my body so the moment just hit me so hard, like WOW, I’m really almost done. The finish line isn’t around the corner anymore- it’s right there, I just have a few more steps until I cross that yellow line.

As always, Michael was there by my side. Today, actually holding onto my feet, but right there with me, making sure Halo was being played at the appropriate time and loving me with everything he has. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I really am the luckiest girl in the world. 

With that, I’m making myself a bowl of ice cream and continuing to relax on the couch with my two loves for the night. Thank you for the millionth time to everyone who said a little prayer for me, I owe you big time.

Lots of love & light,

    • Thank you Mrs. Spacone. Your family has always shown so much strength and unity, I would think of you all often. Sending lots of love to you and the whole Spacone clan! 😘

  2. Jess, I think tomorrow is even a BIGGER Day for you:-)
    I will say an extra prayer tonight, not that you need it, that tomorrow, you will be celebrating with Mike, Mom and Dad…a very long journey that you all traveled together that has finally come to an end. The end will be full of flowers/rainbows/and whatever makes your heart warm and you smile.
    It has been an awful 2 years for you and those closest to you. I know it has changed you, however you never needed that….you are stronger, more resilient and have made so many new “friends” that care deeply about you. Life is full of moments…you have made lemonade out of all the lemons you have been dealt. God bless you….Love Connie
