"From One Granddaughter's Cord to Another Granddaughter's Marrow"


During the recent cord blood transplant my granddaughter had, she underwent a week of chemo-therapy before the actual proceedure. Mom had combed her hair the night before and it started coming out.

Yesterday we played beauty shop and got rid of all the extra hair on "M's" pretty little round head. It was hard to sit there and comb out all the hair she had grown back in two years, Daddy also had a hard time with it, but "M" like the trooper she is decided to be the life of the party. She told us how many cartoon characters she looked like with her hair gone. Daddy said she looked like "Crocker" from the "Fairly Odd Parents". We all laughed and took it in stride because it didn't bother "M" one bit. She was a little calmer today, a little more nauseas. Her white count is .1 (that's good in transplant terms). Hopefully things will continue to progress positively.....!!!

This was the last update we received on my granddaughter's website concerning the cordblood she received from her baby sister. She had beautiful long hair. This is her second transplant in her fight against Sickle Cell Anemia. Asking for everyone's prayers for her. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing. Chemo can be really hard. Rooting for your granddaughter.
