2 months and 2 days since diagnosisday #7 of current hospital stay
Just look at Valentine's sticker - "Big Sister." I just keeping more and more about Boston and transplant. Today, Valentine spoke to the nurse who was holding Riker. "I"m going to give my blood..." she shook her head "...my bone marrow to Riker. I'm going to bring my flower blanky to Boston and sleep so they can give it to her." My little girl is so smart and so brave. It kills me that my girls have to be so brave so young.
When all this is done, Riker will not have her own blood anymore. She will have Valentine's blood. I still cannot get my head around this. The bond between my two girls will be on some entirely different level than I ever could have imagined. I am blown away. Valentine really is the most amazing big sister I've ever known. These girls are my heroes.
