Tomorrow morning, I go to the lab to get 100ml of blood drawn. I know that's not a lot compared to donating blood, which I've also done, but it sounds like a lot right now. After all, we give 8ml blood transfusions to our smallest babies in the NICU! 100 is a lot in our tiny world.
I'm also nervous because they will be scrutinizing every possible number on my lab results (and, of course, genetic markers) to see if I'm a good match. More than wanting all my numbers to be perfect, I want to be good enough to help!
Please pray that this keeps moving forward and I can help someone during such a desperate time. I know I'm not even a definite match, but I already feel really good about signing up to be a donor. I highly recommend it! It's humbling to know that I could literally save someone's life with generosity.
