If it's December, must be bone marrow time.
And ... yes, there it is on my calendar.
Went for a bone marrow today and decided after the procedure, that I'm done with bone marrow's. All they do is "monitor" and the result is the same year after year (since reaching MMR and below).
So I am making an executive decision that I am no longer going to have an annual bone marrow aspiration. As long as my PCR is MMR or below, I'm good.
