How Tami is Feeling

We have the latest news from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Hospital. The last two bone marrow biopsies Tami had confirmed the diagnosis of Myelodysplasia. Obviously, this means Tami will need a donation. We are so thankful that she has found a match. Now we have to pray the donor is able and willing.

All of Tami's pre-transplant health testing is now complete. The remainder of this week she has appointments scheduled to receive back the results of all of the tests she's undergone since arriving at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Hospital.

As of right now, Tami is scheduled to undergo 6 rounds of chemotherapy beginning June 23rd. If everything with the chemotherapy goes ok, her transplant is planned to begin the 30th of June.

We are still waiting to find out if her potential donor has begun his health screening tests. It is sort of frustrating not knowing about the potential donor, but I understand why they are protected.

Tami has been seeing her kids via webcam which is helping them to deal with her absence. It must be very hard to have your mom going through something so serious. It's almost too much for young kids to process.
