Mixed Emotions

Yesterday we got some great news, I have a confirmed donor and an official date, on Christmas Day I will be getting my bone marrow transplant!

 

This is great news as its a 100% match from a 29 yo female donor and the beginning to a cure.  Although I’m scared – chemo, transplant, extended hospital visit, side effects, a long long recovery quarantined at home while my immune system rebuilds itself over the next year… I’m grateful to have a donor but didn’t expect this to progress so quickly.
