"I love you." Mmm. It's a three word phrase we don't say enough. I don't understand why people don't like Valentine's Day? It's not just about a boyfriend or a girlfriend. It's about loving those in your life. Plus, pink-what a good color! Anyways, I'm done preaching.

The Chimerism test has been moved to Tuesday for reasons unrelated to me. Actually, do you want to know the truth? They gave away my time slot! Talk about not being loved on Valentine's Day :) In actuality they just booked these appointments unaware it was my "usual time". I'm hoping my stem cells are "feeling the love" today. I am so excited for this test. Well not the test itself; but the results. I don't want to put too much emphasis on the importance of this test. It determines the speed of my recovery. It's not the end of the world if it isn't up to par, but it will be disappointing. We are looking for both the T cells and the the overall to be trending upward. Let's flash back, the results on Day 30 were: T Cells-40% Ryan, 60% me and Overall-89% Ryan, 11% me. We want to see all Ryan by Day 100 atleast (if not sooner). There is a lot of pressure on Ryan. Clinic on Tuesday at 10am we are asking for a shut out. Later at 3pm I'll be his biggest fan at South Mountain while he's on the mound.


  1. What a day for you and Ryan...I hope all has gone well. We're praying! Much love, Kathy & Rexie

  2. Well I hope your stem cells are "feeling the love" also! We'll be praying for the best of results. I love you Carolyn!:)
    Love, Naomi

  3. We are praying hard that the stem cells "feel the love." We know more and more miracles are on the way. Good Luck, Ryan in the game too! Hugs from rainy Washington

  4. Ceci Girl: It was fun seeing you today. Good luck tomorrow. We do expect a text on the way home from the clinic. As you kn ow Uncle Rick & Aunt Ro are here and Uncle Rick is here. Uncle Rick Floyd came to help clean out Grandpa's bedroom. You know how many books Grandpa had! I am keeping about half of them. We are giving the rest to the Southern Baptist Association. They will give the Pastor's in the Association access to them. That would make Grandpa happy!!!!! There are memories of Grandpa every where and all good ones. Have I told you today that I love you!!!!!!!!Gammie
