The other day I got the idea that I wanted to decorate my room. I have been her for 2 weeks and I am starting to get tired of looking at white walls. There are several patients that have decorated their rooms to look like home. Some friends have given me Halloween stuff and then I sent mom to Walmart for some window clings. Since I already had some decorations I thought why not go all out. I called a few people and in less than 24 hours I have a Halloween decorated room. My room makes me happy now. I even have bats hanging from my ceiling. I am glad that I felt up to decorating today. I received platelets this morning and will probably need a blood transfusion tomorrow. Other than that I feel pretty good.
My transplant coordinator called me today and my sister is not a match. My next option is to search the National Bone Marrow Registry. There was only a 25% chance that she would have been a match and I was really hoping she would be. I will be curious to see how many matches they will come up with from the registry. There are over 6 million registered donors so I am hoping to have a few good choices.
Thank you Juanita, Chrisi, Cody and Mom for decorating my room.
