Today is my first re-birthday and I couldn't be happier. Those who have gone through a BMT would fully understand what this day is all about. I am beyond words. I have no words that can truly capture what I'm feeling.
At the 8 AM mass, all I could utter were, "Thank you." I hope it is sufficient. I do hope I am worthy.
I didn't have a cake, so I just used one of my pill containers - "May cause dizziness."
Later that day, Kepi took me out for an Italian lunch, and we shared a slice of Lemon Cream Cake. The cake was delicious and we loved it.
This was taken on January 11, 2014. This bag took almost 6 hours to infuse.
The photo above was taken on Day 0, the day I got infused with my donor's cells. I still remember it like yesterday. I cried.
My heartfelt gratitude to my family, friends and everyone who gave me that extra push to keep going. Thank you to my donor. Thank you God for giving me a second chance in life.
