Good news is that unless I spike a fever my cough is not concerning. Also my biopsy only showed 1% blasts so I am good there. They have not heard that my donor hasn’t passed his screening so we are fully a go!
And we did get clarification that I am getting marrow and not stem cells. We also learned that I will most likely be sent into early metoupause but I still can look into doing embryo adoption down the road.
The future may seem to be scary but it is bright and full of life. 3 months from now I will be ready to take on the world. 10 days from now I will be reborn and start my journey towards being cured.
Please if you haven’t yet, take the time to visit www.bethematch.org and register as a donor. You can save a life. Everyone deserves their chance at getting cured but it can only happen with your help.
Don’t let Hollywood scare you out of it. It is not as dramatic as they make it appear. So please register. There are so many out there waiting for their match.
Have a wonderful St. Patty’s Day!
