Malachi is the match...

Bone marrow transplant doctor was here briefly this pm to inform us that Malachi ,9 mo old is Mikayla 's match. We will meet next week with transplant coordinator for blood type and match details. We will discuss what will it do to the recepient and the donor. Then when it is getting close, the whole transplant team will meet again with us to discuss everything . What we were told initially was , after third course of chemo which will be around end of September or beginning of October , they will perform the transplant. Then upon transplant , Mikayla stays 100 more days in hospital depending on how her body is doing. Then in and out for check up and follow up treatments. We were also told that there will be no more chemo after transplant. So we are looking at possibly late winter, early spring before we are out of the hospital. Hopefully!!!!
Right now, 11:40 pm , Mike and the three kids are at Wal-Mart getting medicine for Malachi. He has been running high temp since last night and were guessing he isjust teething. Mike has been checking his temp every 6 hours and giving tylenol to keep it down. He cannot be around Mikayla, so he was kicked out of the room since last night. He has to be fever free for 24 hours .
Been a rough 24 hours so far but in God's grace we will make it.
Again thank you for all your prayers and support.


  1. That is such great news...NO more chemo!!! Yea!!!

  2. I am so glad to hear you have a match, although I know it's scary to think about as well. I hope Malachi gets over his fever quickly and that it is just from teething and not an illness!

  3. God is answering prayers so keep up the faith and remember we are all praying for your family. There is a light at the end.
    Please God help little Malachi get over this fever and be back in the loop with big sis and Thank You for being our HERO.
