PBSC Donation Postponed

I think that says it all. Got the call 10 minutes ago from Stacey that the Guy has low levels of something in his blood and his doctors aren’t comfortable killing off his immune system yet. He is thankfully still in remission which is essential for the donation to go through.  They are redoing the tests and the new projected donation day is (date redacted for privacy).

One thing that made me nervous was they weren’t okay with my donating ahead of time and freezing the cells – which is a common enough thing, I guess – because they can’t say 100% they’re going to use them.  I can’t believe how close this guy got – less than a week – and now to have another setback?  This has to happen for him after all this time. More than a year.  Keep a good thought this is just a minor delay.
