Update Update : Diagnosis!

Today, my thyroid  tumor was biopsied.;  i don't expect to learn muck.  I'm sure it is benign.

The results of the marrow biopsy were shared with older daughter and me yesteerday.  The loss of energy and red blood cells is due to an inability of my bone marrow to release red blood cells (mylodisplasia).  This can be treated with recular injections of Darbepoetin Alfa (Aranesp),which,,i was told,. is aa hormone.  Shots will begin a week froin Thursday and continue every other week indefinitely.

Oh, yes. It was benign.

Otherwise things are going slow
