Absolutely wonderful news!!!

September was Rachel’s bone marrow transplant month. They got her into the hospital and gave her the superduper killer chemo. It wiped out everything. Then they transfused her own bone marrow back into her. This is only day 9 after the infusion and her newly infused bone marrow is producing cells!!!

Rachel might be able to go home in as soon as THREE days!!!

Soooooooooooooo happy!!!

  10. It really is amazing what the medical field can do for illnesses that were once incurable. But that reminds me, I need to get on the bone marrow donor list again. I was registered in Minnesota, but I don’t think the database is shared with medical centers in Cali. There was a greater shortage in MN for donors with ethnic backgrounds. Here the need might not be so critical.
