Day 333…this doesn’t seem possible! I will celebrate my 1st stem cell transplant birthday in 32 days! This also means that I will be able to find out if my donor wants to remain anonymous or agree to meet me! I would love to meet my donor whom I love so very much (!), and I’m praying that will happen. Wherever Wade and I would have to go, we will be there! On the other hand, I am also praying that if he wishes to remain anonymous, I will graciously accept his decision. The countdown is on!
Meanwhile, I just finished my 8th round of Vidaza yesterday. Only 4 more rounds to go. I have been having bouts of extreme tiredness and extra swelling of my leg with deep vein thrombosis. I thought this happened with my leg the last 2 rounds, but wasn’t quite sure. Now I don’t think it is a coincidence! Overall I think I am improving. My liver function tests have improved, and other bits and pieces of GVHD seem to be disappearing. I have so much to celebrate and be thankful for!
I will be all week in Tyler with my parents and sister and brother-in-law. I’m so excited!

I’m dog paddling fast and not looking back! Have a great weekend! Holly
