HERE IS MY MOST HAPPY, WONDERFUL NEWS:  MD ANDERSON HAS FOUND AN UNRELATED DONOR MATCH IN THE NATIONAL MARROW REGISTRY!!!!! This person has agreed to be my donor and has already returned the extensive HLA blood test to MD Anderson, and is ready to make appointments to proceed!  My sister has not been able to get a diagnosis on her health issues, and therefore is not a suitable donor.  We waited to see what her Doctor said at her appointment Monday, and it is now obvious that we can not wait any  longer even though she is a perfect related match.  My health has been rapidly going down the tubes the last couple of months.  Right now I don’t know much except that it will probably happen in about 3 to 4 weeks.  Yesterday I received a red blood transfusion, and have recently had alot of neupogen shots, so I am feeling pretty good right now.  Dr. Ravipati in Amarillo will just do support care until I get to Houston.  My transplant Dr.’s PA told me this morning that I will have a bone marrow biopsy as soon as I get down there, and if my blasts are good, we will proceed.  If the blasts are too high, I may have to have treatment first.

I honestly can not describe the feeling that there is a complete stranger out there that is so totally willing to do whatever is necessary to save my life.  Thank you Jesus!  You have answered my prayers!
