    OK, I have to throw a bit of humor in here.

    Ashley’s 21st birthday was Tuesday. Finally legal to drink. She got permission from the doc to have one drink. Well, as any 21 year old would do on their birthday, she went out and got hammered. She got home at 3AM. The next morning on her way to Roswell, she got sick 2x and another 3x at the appointment. They checked her counts and for the first time, she didn’t need platelets. Now we are thinking of alchohol therapy. lol

    I know it could have been disasterous if she had bleed while being sick or something, but what is she supposed to do ? She has been in bed for what seems like forever with no energy and is facing something no one should have to go through especially at her age.

    She vows to never drink again…..

    Anyway, we are awaiting scheduling for the transplant. It is probably about 4 weeks away.

    Today’s visit to roswell brought good news. Here is Ashley’s text message to me:

    “My donor is giving blood samples! They told me that they have never seen a donor move so fast! This is soo great…”

    As you can see, her spirits are high and things are going swiftly.

    Thanks for all the support and prayers!

    This is great news. Our best to Ashley. She will do well and life will be normal again soon. I will continue to remember you both in prayers. Harold

    Butch, glad to hear your good news! I think about Ashley everyday and am really praying that everything will work out. Just the fact that the ‘donor is moving so fast’ means that the universe is behind and supporting Ashley in every possible way and if it continues this way she will be just fine!!
    I have passed on the ‘alcohol therapy’ to my mother!!! – She says she will have to learn to drink!
    Take care you are doing great!
