First off we want to thank everyone who participated in the Jimmy Buffet guitar auction and a special thanks to Gina for your generous bid. I know you will love this guitar, its a beauty.
4 days and a wake up til the transplant. How are we feeling? I would say anxious is the best word to describe it. We are excited for sure but also nervous and confused by the unknown aspect of all of this. We prayed for this day to come and now that it’s getting close we have that feeling of… Yikes, with a smile, We are ready as we could ever be with the let’s do this attitude and we know that with all of the love and prayers we have around us we can only have a successful transplant on the 4th. Thank you to all of you who have sent your loving messages, your heart felt Prayers and you generous donations. All our love and thanks,
Bubba Jeannie and Family
With the time I have at night latley I have time to think about all that has happened in our lives and am begining to realize what this disease has done for us. The answer is it has taught us some very valuable lessons. First off you will never see us argue about foolish trivial things anymore, we realize how foolish is to do that. We have always loved our Children but enjoy their smiles and company so much more now, if that is possible. We realize just how good we had it when we thought we had it so bad. Trust me on the last point, You don’t have a problem until you are faced with losing everything you have, which when faced with losing it all, seems like so much more in retrospect. So in the words of an old freind, “Laugh,,Have a GOODEN,,& Smile when you can ” TY everyone for your support, beautiful messages and well wishes and your generous donations.
Well Jeannie got her last EPO shot today, was a sad day for us as we have come to love her nurse Tawana Hampton like Family. We will stop in and see her from time to time but we all understood in the end this is the best thing that could have happened.
Last trip to see Jeannies Nurse! Can’t beleive it! Time is slowly creeping to the 4th. TY everyone for all your Love and support, going to be a long week with a wonderful finish. <3 Bubba and Family.
All went well today, Eric is still there but he’s the Super Donor so no worries there :-). I have to say one thing, I have been through and seen a lot in my life but hands down Eric and Jeannie are two of the calmest and bravest people I have ever seen… Thank you everyone for your support and we could not do this without all of you. <3 all of you, Eric, Jeannie and the rest of our family.
