I’m back online, its been a very very hard journey but I can truly say that God is faithful and does answer prayers! :)
I received my second high dose chemo on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 it was called Melphalan. This particular chemo is called the knock out, it wipes all cancer cells but also your entire immune system and plays havoc on your entire digestive track. On March 27, 2014, I received my stem cell transplant its considered day 0 and the beginning of new life. The transplant was hard due to the preservatives needed to keep your stem cells viable. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do and scary. But the care I have received from the Duke Adult Bone Marrow Transplant clinic is like no other, they not only know their stuff but they are consistently kind, caring and professional. I thank God Almighty for placing me where I needed to be. I no longer cry thinking about why me or why now. After relocating to NC within 3 months of starting a new job, the journey began. My God what a journey! I have a expected outcome from all of this! One transplant and done, living a full life enjoying my loved ones with many years in front of me! I am excited, grateful and over flowing with love! Stay connected.
P.s. Yvie Bears are being mailed this week. My recovery has been difficult and I was not able to stay on top of the shipping but its being taken care of now! Thank you Gina from Gann Memorial plush toys for making it all happen. Love you!
