I'm still here

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I had a great lunch with my family and we even got to see a little bit of snow.

Everything has been going very well for me. Every Monday I go for lab work and so far they have all looked good. I finally feel like myself again. As far as the donor search, things are finally starting to look up. I got word that 3 people have made appointments for additional blood work. Once the blood samples arrive in Dallas it will take 2-3 weeks to determine if anyone will be a perfect match for me. I feel good that one of them will be my donor. I am still waiting to find out if I will have another round of chemo before my transplant. Since it has been over a month since I left the hospital and the donor search is taking longer than we thought, I might need more chemo to make sure I stay in remission. This round is much easier because I will only have to be in the hospital for a week and I get to recover at home. I hope to know something this week if that is going to happen.

Thanks for checking on me.

Hi Sam,
I am glad your thanksgiving was good. Dara came and we all ate too much.
I pray the news is good, both from your test results, and the donor search.
Thinking of you.
