THIS JUST IN & HOT OFF THE PRESS!!!
MELANIE’S BEEN CLEARED AS OUR NEW DONOR!!!
The moment we heard that I wasn’t a viable donor, Barry and I flew our middle sister from SF to NY before she had too much time to think. (And she thought all we wanted from her were those choc chip cookies!)
Surgery’s been scheduled for Tuesday, July 28th, Mt Sinai, New York, NY. Melanie will remain in NY approximately two weeks post surgery, so won’t be back in SF till closer to the 14th or 15th. Our mom, Ruth, has been there since Mon, July 6th, and will stay through and escort Melanie home.
Ron, our father & Fearless Leader, will remain in SF with the rest of our clan, keeping the City running properly in their absence, so not to worry, he’s on it.
Feel free to post messages here for any of us - Should you like to send a message by mail, the address is: 224 W18th St, Apt 2A, New York, NY 10011
This is an up-to-the-minute report, so you now know everything we know. I’ll be posting any news as it becomes available, more so as the surgery date comes closer.
We thank you all for your heartfelt concerns and patience through this rather trying journey towards a successful transplant - How fortunate we are to be held in your loving thoughts and good wishes.
