Thought it was time for another update. We are down to the wire now a little over 2 weeks and we will head to Mexico for Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) for short. Will be there for 28 days. We will get there a few days ahead to get our bearings and rest from the travel to get there. We leave Wed Oct 5th and we come home Sat Nov 5th. I am not scared maybe a little anxious nervous, I have noticed a butterfly in my stomach once or twice. My funds are pretty well in order besides the expenses for the month of October which shouldn't be too bad depending on any out of the ordinary medical which I don't anticipate. When I come home I will have 5 monthly boosters of a chemo drug to keep blood cells where they need to be.
Bottom line this is all coming together because of the love from my family and friends donating what is needed for this treatment. I plan on trying to send updates on what is happening during treatment with the help of Charl and Charlie. Charl will be there too for the first part of treatment to be with me during chemo. It will be good for Charlie too. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the help and caring during this. It means so very much to me. Love you all!

Time for an update effective 8-19-2016 I have a confirmation date for Mexico for Oct 10th. I am excited beyond words. I am also at a loss of words to say how so thankful and appreciative I am for all the wonderful donations. My adrenaline is really in high gear. Hard to believe this is all really happening. I started all this in Feb 2016 so that is a relatively short amount of time to get a date. Thanks to all the wonderful donations from family and friends I was able to go on the cancellation list which resulted in the earlier date of Oct. So now I just have to stay organized and pack my comfy clothes. We leave Oct 5th and get there a couple days early to check out the city, we get our apartment Sun afternoon. We come home Nov 5th. I love you all and thank you all for what you have helped me do.
