On A Serious Note: Update

New, 43 comments

Well, as most of you know my 5 month old daughter will be receiving a bone marrow transplant to cure a rare immunology ailment. That journey begins in earnest tomorrow. We'll be checking into Texas Children's Hospital bright and early at 6 am.

Raylee will be having a central line placed (basically a permanent IV) to make it easier to administer medicine, fluids, and unfortunately chemo. We're in good spirits and a lot of that has to do with the Barking Carnival readership.

My wife was literally shocked by the responses she received when Sailor Ripley initially posted about Raylee and her ordeal. In fact, I could tell my wife was impressed because up until that point she had basically given me a verbal pat on the head when I mentioned that I blogged at Barking Carnival. So thanks for that.

And thanks for all of the thoughts, prayers, and well wishes you left on her blog. They mean a lot. If you can, stop by our blog and leave a response or just to say hello. Or to get an update. We'll be there all month.

Plus, I'll put you on the waiting list for a Barking Carnival tote bag if you put in a good word for me on her blog. I'm not proud, every little bit helps

Thanks.
