Cat has such a sweet soul and designed a beautiful "Pray for Kate" blog button - it's on the right sidebar!
Feel free to grab the code, post it on your blog, and help spread the word that Kate needs all the thoughts and prayers she can get right now.
I want to thank all of you for the support you have shown my family over the past 3 days. I am amazed by the comments, emails, tweet, FB messages, etc that I have received.
I am working on a post that answers several questions we have been asked - it should be up tomorrow or Friday. My sister is also working with a donor organization and is planning a huge bone marrow drive in Central Florida (where my family current lives) in the next few weeks. I will provide details as we have them.
For now, I have a specific prayer request.
Please pray for Alex, Kate, and I tomorrow. We are heading to the transplant center for our "typing" at 11am central time. I am not nervous about the blood draw at all. However, I am sick to my stomach about walking into the unit.
You only enter the bone marrow transplant unit because you NEED to be there.
We officially qualify.
My child is a transplant patient.
How did we get to this point? How is this my life?
We will do it - I will hide my fears and walk through those double doors and face our reality. But, I am going to need strength that can only come from prayer to make it.
I will tell myself that Kate will fight this, and will be a winner.
I will believe it because she is going to beat this. She will live a long, beautiful life.
But, I will still be filled with fear for Kate's journey.
On a lighter note - here is some Kate cuteness from Sunday - before our world was turn upside down.
