Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Ok... so here is my story... I'll make it short and sweet! Basically, my bone marrow has been confused for at least 5 years! I have had low platelets since 2012 but always felt great (especially when I retired from teaching and had more time to exercise, socialize and sleep)!! In July of 2017 my platelets went really low. By the grace of God....I went to Moffitt for a second opinion and they started me on a "light chemo" therapy for 5 months. Now, it is Jan. 2018 and I am going through Vital Organ Testing to prepare for a Blood Marrow Transfusion around the middle of February! God and His angels have been walking this journey with me of course! He has kept me well and my brother is a perfect match for the transfusion AND I have family and friends who are praying for me everywhere!! Right now, it is a waiting game, but I am trying to be patient with God's planning! I always like to read the last chapter of a book before I decide to finish it (I want it to have a happy ending). So, of course, I would love a peek at this last chapter, but I know it won't happen..... :} So, Linda P. suggested "writing my own ending" .... I like that.... I don't want to be a burden to anybody... and I want to be able to keep volunteering and grand baby sitting and spreading God's love ! How's that??? Love and Hugs, Jeannie
