Day 75 - The Matching Game

Today Anna heads in for a routine blood draw. While the process to do this is routine, the magnitude of this particular blood draw is monumental. See, The next step for Anna'a treatment a bone marrow transplant. For this we pray there is an appropriate match for her. 

From the time they draw her blood today it will take 3 weeks to check the global donor database for a match. During this time Anna will undergo an even more intense round of chemo than the first one that didn't work. For this we will live in the hospital for 3-4 weeks. We pray for a match. This will be the longest few weeks of our lives as we wait.

Thank you
