Check up...

...Mini and I were back at the hospital yesterday...for an MRI and check up... most of you know, Mini had a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor curing her of Sickle Cell Disease in January 2011.
 ...what you may not know, bone marrow transplants are very complicated and dangerous procedures...the most dangerous period is after receiving the bone marrow.  Mini had two rounds of chemo which totally knocked out her immune system.  Leaving her open to all types of infections and illness that our bodies usually fight off...
...even her immunizations were knocked, yesterday she got her second round of immunizations...just as a new born baby would...We began the paperwork needed to finally meet her donor.  Hopefully this will happen before the end of the year.

Mini also had an MRI of her brain...I remember her first MRI...she was so little they had to put her to sleep just to keep her still...yesterday she went into the tube 30 minutes, all alone...All I could think was how far she has come...with the grace of GOD!  ...and he is not done yet...GOD is still showing off when it comes to

As for me, being in the hospital all day yesterday really bought on a lot of anxiety.  How did I do this every 3 weeks for the past 8 years?  Exhale.
