How Tami is Feeling

Today Tami had an office visit with her doctor.

While Tami's red blood cell count is down just a bit both her white blood cell and platelet counts have risen. However, all her counts are still below normal minimum levels.

Tomorrow Tami will undergo a bone marrow biopsy to see how her condition is progressing. It will take several days to receive the results back so we won't have any information for you right away.

Also it will be at least 2 more weeks before Tami is moved to Seattle to begin her pre-transplant evaluation. This is significant because our understanding is that the donor will not begin his pre-transplant health screening to ensure he is eligible to donate unless and until Tami has passed her tests first. At that time the potential donor will be screened and if he is deemed eligible to donate and is willing to donate then the actual transplant preparations and scheduling of the transplant begin.

So here's hoping Tami's marrow biopsy goes smoothly tomorrow and prayers that the results are good news. And, more prayers that the donor is eligible and willing to donate!!
