AML sometimes requires a bone marrow transplant. The doctors have not yet decided if Rachel will need a bone marrow transplant, but as a standard precaution, Emily and I (Adam) were tested today to see if we are a match, should Rachel need a transplant. It was good to feel like we were doing something to help, and we got to meet a very interesting hospital employee...and a very nice, normal phlebotomist. Fun times. Check out Emily's awesome bracelet and bright orange band-aid.
We'll let everyone know if either of us are a match- cross your fingers!
