Update: HemOnc has 5 Cord Blood typings on hold for Shannon. They will have a transplant plan next week. That's all they will tell us. They aren't saying that will minimize the amount of time they initially told us. I'm hoping next week will go like this:
"You know when it's your birthday and no one says happy birthday to you all day or gives you are card or a present, but then that night you walk into a surprise party?" ...yep. This is what we are hoping for. once they have a plan it goes like this: chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, then an average of 21 days to graft into her body. They already did all her preliminary blood work, nasal and rectal material check and all other necessary pre transplant labs to make sure Shannon is in "good health".
Our hope is that they did all the preliminary labs on Shannon because they intend to move quickly.
From Proverbs: The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
Also, Teagan was able to see her sister today, so beautiful.
