No B (cells) in this House

Super quick post to update.

Ava’s fellow called shortly before 8 to tell us that based on labs she had Friday she has no detectable B Cells. This means the CAR-T cells are doing their job. While we won’t know if she’s MRD- until after her bone marrow aspiration next week, we do know at the moment she has no B cells. Some of you may remember she was diagnosed with B Cell ALL. Remember that thrill of hope?

Since she has B-Cell Aplasia she will be getting monthly IVIg treatments to help her body fight infection. This may not sound ideal, but we want the B cells to stay away as long as possible. So please friends keep praying.
