Hello friends! Today, Bo had his first routine clinic appointment of the year. As you might remember, we were able to transition to every 3 month appointments back in September.

December 31, 2020– Overdue Update
Hello dear friends and family! It’s hard to believe the last time I wrote an update was way back in September. Now that Bo’s appointments are more spaced out, life is starting to feel a bit more normal. It’s hard to let myself sink into the “normal” feeling, but I’m trying to embrace it as […]

September 19, 2020—Day +365, Bo’s Transplant Birthday!
Happy Transplant Birthday, Boaz! God has been so faithful. I feel like there’s so much I could write, but I’m unsure where to start. As I was reflecting today on the last year, I was reminded that on Bo’s transplant day last year, I shared updates on how things went, but I never got around […]

Friends, we are so so happy to share that Bo’s biopsy results came back CLEAR! It’s been a long 10 days since his clinic appointment. I’ll admit, I haven’t waited as well as I would have hoped. It’s been agony. Hard to eat, sleep, my thoughts getting away from me. I wrestle with anxiety and […]

So much energy, a great appetite, […]
