Good morning everyone!! Headed back to Johns Hopkins bright and early with Cesar. We should find out the results of my bone marrow biopsy one week ago today. We are PRAYING for 100% donor. This means we need my bone marrow to be 100% my sister’s DNA. I’ve been up […]
Best 24 hours ever. I’m writing as Gabriel sleeps on my chest. I’m in heaven. My little boy is my angel. He hugged me all night and sat up and whispered around 4am “I missed you Mami. I love you.” In fact, was beautiful. He tells me that all day. […]
