Lyric is having her spinal tap surgery anytime now this morning. We are just waiting for the team to take us to the OR. They will sample the spinal fluid to test for the presence of Leukemia and also give her a round of chemo in the the fluid. We pray that this sample will come back "clean" so that she will be in remission in that area. We have also been told that Crystal and I will have to give blood today for testing. They want to see if we might be a match for bone marrow testing. They will do it right in our room and take several tubes of blood. I hate needles and won't be able to scream or cry because Lyric will be looking at me.
