How Tami is Feeling

Big news today!! The doctors have decided to let Tami return home for a little while. However, she will be required to return to the hospital everyday for monitoring, check ups, and blood work. The doctors will also determine on a daily basis if a blood transfusion or a platelet transfusion is needed. These transfusion, of course, would be given to Tami in the hospital.

We are concerned that being home from the hospital can be dangerous incase Tami were to catch a cold or get an infection but the doctors are ok with her going home. Returning home will be good for her mood. Her children will also be so relieved to have their mom home!! And, Tami will be able to spend more time with them.

She does tire easily so she has to be careful to not over do it once she's home.


  1. Keep moving around and keep your spirits up Tami. We will get through this.

  2. Through word of mouth (email) I was told of your site earlier in the week. After reading through the process of being a donor,and possibly being able to offer someone another chance at living a full life..I signed up last night for a home kit and will hope for the best. I would be honored to be able to help someone in need as you Tami.
