Thanks for the update! A bone biopsy - Yuck!!!! I bet that didn't feel very good. Please let us know the results.

I'm glad that you are getting around better. Sometimes it takes a whole lot of mind over matter to push through the fatigue and all the various symptoms so that we can lead a somewhat normal life. Hang in there!

Big Hugs,

Hello Gordon,
Thank you for the update. You are very strong for hanging in there with all of the fatigue that you have been experiencing. You are right, the 3 weeks will go by quickly! Please let us know what you find out...

Well, since your bone biopsy was unexpected, at least you didn't have the anticipatory stress of waiting to have it. Not quite so bad waiting for the results (which I hope are good). Do let us know when you get the results.
Warm wishes,
