Gift of Life

The moment we were waiting for arrived last night in the form of a baggie filled with pink liquid...

9:45 - Cooler arrives at nurses station

9:50 - Confirmed package for Brandon - 17o ml of pure stem cells (yes - that's all)

10:00 - Begin transfusion - a VERY emotional moment

10:45 - Transfusion complete (yes, about 45 minutes start to finish)

Now it's up to these smart cells to find their way into Brandon's bones and begin developing a healthy immune system.

TRULY - A Gift of Life

Thank you donor for being our hero!
