Is it just me, or is it SO much easier to write about happy things? I have been wanting to write this post FOREVER now, but every time I've tried...I just press delete.
All of you are so inspiring with how honest you are with everything that is going on in your life, good or bad, and I'm going to step up to the plate.
So thank you!
On September 22, my dad had a complete and total bone marrow transplant. Everything has happened so fast.
For over a year, he has been dealing with MDS (myelodysplatic syndrome). Between chemo and blood transfusions, my dad has pushed through it! Continuing to work and even making a trip down to our new house to help put up our chair rail and everything else!
Finally, his body just stopped responding to the chemotherapy.
Luckily, there was a match on the donor list and so everything happened from there.
It has been over a week since the transplant and I can't even begin to imagine what he is going through.
He truly is the toughest guy in the world, and as he has always said, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going!"
I just wanted to be honest with all of you of what is going on in my life. But most importantly, if you have a second, feel free to send any thoughts or prayers my family's way.
