Doing my happy dance!
Results came in today that we've got Ella back into remission. Her minimal residual disease test came back negative , which means in 10000 cells, not one cancer cell was seen. This means she's sensitive to the chemo so can continue with chemo now for 3 years and avoid a bone marrow transplant for now. I've sighed a massive sigh of relief. She's certainly not out of the woods and we've still got a massive road ahead of us, but this is one monumental hurdle over and done with!
