Ok fam it’s go time..

My blood counts started rising (a big celebration for us stem cell patients!), so can you join me in praying specifically for my WBC to shoot all the way up to 1.0 by sometime tomorrow?! That’s what is necessary for my discharge, which we’re all (us & medical team) hoping/expecting to occur tomorrow. But it all comes down to that WBC getting to 1.0!

If you’re reading this then we have some degree of being connected in the world… I’ve been trying to write some sort of eloquent post to tell you all about what’s happening next month, but that has proven to be more difficult than I thought. 7 weeks from tomorrow I’ll be at a hospital in Chicago starting high-dose chemo, as the first step of a 3-month process for my stem cell transplant. This is not for cancer but for Multiple Sclerosis, which I was diagnosed with in July 2008–a few weeks after Keith and I got married. That’s when everything changed. When the life we had imagined took a sharp turn for.. something else. It’s a long story and one I’ll share with you as we go, but it’s too much to explain tonight. For now can you please pray for us? And thank you for your friendship and love.
