I called the hospital today to find out if they have a confirmed date for admission to the hospital for me. I was told that my 9/10 donor was “unavailable for a few months” and that they were “activating a back up donor”. I guess such bumps in the road are to be expected. I will never know why the original donor has become unavailable. Maybe the person has changed his/her mind, maybe there are other reasons. No point in stressing out about that now, though I am disappointed. Thank God I have a back up donor, who is also a 9/10 match. I hope this donor does work out. Time will tell. The hospital is still aiming for a mid-April admission date, despite a new donor being in the picture now. I wonder if I have any more back up donors. The hospital won’t tell me.
