I am amazed that one year ago today I was in the hospital recieving my stem cell transplant. This picture is from my "birthday party" I guess today is my 1st birthday.
I am suprised how fast this year went by. A year ago I was at my lowest and now I am feeling great and back to my "normal" life. I never expected that I would have gone back to work only 8 months after my transplant and not be completly exhausted. Don't get me wrong, I am tired and somedays I need a nap, but I feel 100% better than I did a year ago. I still make monthly trips to Dallas for check-ups and I still have a few issues that we are trying to resolve with the right medication. I am so lucky that I found the perfect donor and I have not had the complications that I could have that would make my life difficult. Now that it's been a year I am able to release my name to the donor center letting them know I am interested in being found by my donor. It is up to her if she wants to be found. I would love to meet her and to let her know how grateful I am for her selfless act. Without this transplant I would not be here. She is my angel and I hope to meet her one day.
This picture was taken at the State Fair a couple of months ago. Look how much hair I have!
