Sitting with me...


This is a picture that I have in my bedroom. It was a picture that Todd took of the two of us sitting together during my transplant. You can actually see her blood being transfused into my body.


I see it at different times during the day. It never fails to tug at my emotions - making me stop and ponder what my sister actually did for me. She literally saved my life. Truthfully, though, I really don't need a picture to remind me. Whenever I have my blood drawn or even a tiny paper cut, I'm reminded that the blood is hers. I now, and always will bleed Tracy's blood. Sure, my body produces it. But only because she gave me the seeds, or stem cells, to grow it.


I love you, Tracy.

I love you. I have the exact photo, framed in a beautiful frame with the words "expect miracles" above it. You are a miracle. I think back to just about a year ago and all that you have come through ~ it is a miracle.

I love you,
Tracy
