My donor saved my life and there are not words in this world to describe how much I thank her for doing that. I think of her daily and how she chose to help someone across the country that she did not even know. I know that I am not just thinking of her daily, and of course sending her all the positive vibes my body can send but that many of you have thought of her. What a courageous and selfless person. I hope that she continually feels positive vibes her way for saving me.
I also want to take the time to thank all of those that have registered on the bone marrow registry! For you so many people are thankful and you may get that call to help save a life and I hope you help. I hope to help register as many people as possible as a way to pay it forward for my transplant. If you haven't registered, it is super simple just click here and follow the directions.
A quick update in my world and I will post more later, but I have recently come back from a 6 week trip up north and cannot WAIT to get back in a month for a few weeks. Unfortunately, I came home with remnants of a rash that just will not go away. I have a ton of steroid creams and will find out what exactly it is in a few days when the biopsies come back. (Yes, they took two small punctures out of my skin - really fun!). Besides that I remain on my immunosuppressant and all the fun antivirals and antibiotics that come along with it. That means 17 pills a day a huge improvement from what I used to take and well 9 of those are magnesium vitamins (so they don't really count).
Lastly, please send some positive vibes to my donor on this special day to celebrate her!
