Totally Good Luck

  1. Hi there it's me again ( poop dream girl ) lol .
    I just wanted to share a little story with you all since you all are like my extended family .
    I have a twin sister who was diagnosed with a rare Auto immune disease called Scleroderma .This disease affects women in their child bearing ages. She's a dedicated 3rd grade teacher who goes to work every day despite the fact her Dr. Has put her on permanently disability . This disease has damaged her lungs to the point where she's now using 24/7 oxygen from a portable machine and she's also on a lung transplant waiting list here where we live . Our lives gave changed drastically in 2 years since shes had this disease .
    We were told from the best Dr.s Here in NY that the best chance fir her recovery is for them to try Stem Cell transplant . We were told this about 1 month ago from her Drs. about the stem cell option and other options as well that might be available for her .
    Over the weekend my younger sister who is also a MD. broke the news to us that she is 4 months pregnant and she has already made preparations for my twin sister to receive her baby's cord blood which is what my sister needs to survive.
    My family and I are so excited we cried all weekend and laughed all weekend (God is Good) .
    This news made me to decide to give my sister as a shower gift my Totally Gm that I purchased in the week from a wining lotto ticket . Her shower we will be planning for February since she's due in March 2012. I can't wait to give her this gift for the gift she's giving us ..
    Sorry for the long story but I wanted to share with you all how far this good luck Totally GM is going ..
     
  2. What a great gift. Y'all are all blessed. All of you are very giving. This was a great post, thank you for sharing with us.
     
  3. Oh wow. You just made me cry. What a beautiful, thoughtful, and heart warming gesture.
    My prayers go out to you, your sister, and your family.
    I just lost my best friend of 25 years, who was also my sister in law, to cancer. So I know the pain and anxiety you are going through.
