We had a follow up appointment with our Springfield doctor and told him the good news…no bone marrow transplant. He was shocked and concerned and asked for our doctors number in St. Louis. When he left the room my biggest fear was that the two doctors would disagree, and then who do we listen to? Blake suggested maybe Barnes didn’t have all the information. I said that was absurd. He’s always right. SO-it turns out they didn’t have a very important part of the test results-the part that has a number on it that tells them that “this person absolutely needs a transplant”. We decided that we will do our consolidation in Springfield since we will end up being in St. louis for the transplant for a month. This isn’t our favorite outcome, but God knows what we need better than we do and we trust Him.
*that one of my siblings is a match
*that we can get the transplant asap-they are hoping for a month
