So she and my parents are flying right now to the best hospital in the country for AML. She will be there about 6 weeks for chemo. Once that is over with she will need a bone marrow transplant, which is the only cure. Siblings are the best matches, so I will be tested and if I am a match, I will head to Texas to (as my sister says) save her life. No pressure right?? :) Of course without a doubt I will do anything I have to do to help my sister, but at the same time, it scares me to death! I know that may be selfish, but its natural right??
If you like to donate blood...she needs all the platelets donations as possible! She will get those everyday for a while. If you get the urge, please donate in my sisters name, Jodi Oliver. We will all be very grateful for you. Just keep us in your prayers..these next few weeks will be tough!
She did hear good news this morning before her flight...the doctor told her that the leukemia has not affected any of her major organs yet!! YAY! I was actually able to smile big for the first time dealing with AML! As Jodi says we will take this "one hour at a time". I wish I had her strength! :)
Thank you in advance for all your prayers!
