Waiting.....

Today I am heading down to Vancouver to see Jeremy, Julie and baby Claire.....while I am there, I will have my blood work done to see if I can be a suitable bone marrow cell transplant donor for our brother Harry...It will take 15 days after they receive the blood work to see if the needed 10 DNA markers match...please pray that one of us six siblings will be a match...it is all my family can think of at the moment while Harry is in the Calgary hospital fighting for his life and getting treatment. His wife Jill is with him and he is able to have family and friends come to see him by this weekend.

So....while I wait for our LIVESTRONG wristbands to arrive..I wanted something on my wrist to remind me many times during my day to send love and positive thoughts out to Harry...here is what I made......

Smile at someone today...be a bit kinder and sweeter...it will make a difference.......

Thank you Jim darling.....for your love, understanding and support thru this, I could not do it alone.

There has to be at least ONE match, don't you think? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you all.
