I'm not a big fan of the term "I told you so", but I TOLD YOU SO! Are you sitting down? My brothers really did carry me. Both Ryan and Allan are 6/6 or perfect matches to be my donor. It is the best problem to have. Not only do I have one suitable match; I have two. I feel so blessed. I realized just recently, my life isn't in the hands of the nurses and staff at PCH, but it's in the hands of God. Thank you God. Tonight made my life (literally). Did I mention how much I love my brothers?

From here Dr. Adams will further test my brothers to decide which is the best of the two. We are still scheduled for our meeting Thursday to discuss the treatment plan.

This also makes me realize that I am so fortunate to have two matches, when so many people can't even find one. I am telling you right now, when I am healthy, and I will be. My goal is to get donors into that registry.

Thank you RV & DB.

    That is such great news! Even though I only had the pleasure of being your nurse for a just a couple of days, I know you have what it takes to get through this. I am thinking of you and praying for a speedy recovery on your road back to good health. You are an amazing girl and are blessed to have the best family and friends supporting you!
