Bone Marrow Biopsy

Mia had a bone marrow aspiration this morning. She did great and was smiling when she woke up from the anesthesia. What a trooper! - A Bone marrow biopsy and aspiration can show whether your bone marrow is healthy and making normal amounts of blood cells. (In DBA there’s no red cells being made.) Doctors use these procedures to diagnose and monitor blood and marrow diseases, including some cancers. - In Mia’s case with DBA, it’s recommended to get that procedure done every year in a half - two years. It was super fast she’s just a little sore where they poked her with a big needle on the back of her hip. A yummy brunch helped her to feel better!!
