Well I wanted to update everyone on the donor search. I spoke with my donor coordinator yesterday and she said after they received all my blood typing they put all my information into the donor database and I have 315 potential matches! I can't believe the number. Granted not all are perfect matches, but the fact that I have so many is encouraging. I received funding from the National Marrow Donor Program to test 4 potential donors. They were starting to contact them yesterday. It should be a couple of weeks before we know if any of them are going to be my donor. I am happy that they have started the search. I have a feeling that it will take a month or more to find my donor and get started with the transplant.
Injections are going well. We started them last night at 10pm. I am very proud that my mom was able to give me a shot. It is really not that bad.
