Boy blood

Just wanted to let everyone know that we found a ride for Kaden. Thanks for your responses :) Let's just hope that the weather cooperates.

It was so nice to be able to sleep without being woke up all night. Although Melanie did wake up at 4:30..... I guess her clock was programmed. haha It was really nice for her to be able to move more than just in a hospital room. She felt like she had a bit more energy too. It was great! She had a couple of visitors as well. Grandma & Grandpa Perkes, her friend Jackie, and also her friend Suzanne and her girls.

Melanie's Coordinator (LaDee) for her transplant called today. There are 3 perfect matches for her! Amazing! They are 3 young males. The interesting thing about this process is that if they check her blood after the transplant, it would say that she was male..... She was bit concerned at first, she didn't really want to grow chest hair. haha But LaDee reassured her that her blood will be the only thing male. :) The hormones are not going to be affected. LaDee will get with Melanie's doctor to go over the donors and pick which one will be the best fit for Melanie. We are all so very grateful for their generosity.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers! I know Melanie and our family are truly grateful for everyone. :)

It has been a great day hanging out with you today Melanie! I love you! sweet dreams......
