Thanksgiving Eve 2016

What a whirlwind of a day!

Everything went well and all my tests showed that I am ready for this transplant.  Dr. Burt was wonderful to see again. If my insurance gets with the program quickly then I may be starting mobilization before Christmas! That’s amazing!!! It makes it feel so much more real, the closer it gets.

I had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people who are going through different parts of the transplant journey for dinner today. It was so inspiring to hear how great the results have been for those who had gone through he transplant. And it is great to have a support system that knows exactly how you feel and what you are going through. 

Thank you to my new stem cell familia! It was amazing meeting you all!

A Surprise Thanksgiving Trip

I received a phone call this morning letting me know that they want me back on November 23rd for the additional testing for insurance approval.  It will also serve as part of my initial testing for the transplant. 

Hubby decided that we should take the boys with us so that they can see Chicago before it gets too cold and before I go through my transplant. I’ll also get a chance to enjoy the sites with my boys.

So, we’ll be having a Happy Thanksgiving in Chicago!!!
