How Tami is Feeling

We have some new updates on Tami from Seattle where she is preparing for her possible transplant! Tami has undergone tests almost every day that she has been in Seattle. The doctors need to make sure she is well enough to undergo the procedure. Luckily, Tami's last test will be this week.

If the donor also passes all his health screening tests, Tami will begin chemotherapy on June 23rd. The chemotherapy will prepare Tami's body to receive the donation.

Unfortunately, some of Tami's new medications are making her not feel well. Hopefully, the doctors will be able to help but the medications the doctors give her are necessary.

Yesterday, Tami had a Fatburger for lunch. I know no matter how bad I feel, a burger always makes things not so bad.:)

Tami has had several visitors since relocating to Seattle and other family members arrived a few days ago to be with her while she undergoes her testing, chemotherapy, and recovery. I know having her family around her must be comforting. I'm sure it is a scary time for Tami, but also a relief that a donor has been found and all the testing is in preparation of the donation.
