Bone Marrow Transplant

I'm gonna have a bone marrow transplant in March. We are really lucky that we got a match right away. Audrey my sister is going to be my match. I'm going to start my chemo first. All of my hair will gonna fall out and then I'm going to have all of these neat scarves and hats on and my aunt is gonna crochet some hats for me. And I'm gonna be at home for a bit of days then we're going to go to my real bone marrow transplant when it starts. Then we'll be in the hospital and I'm gonna wait for my new immune system to work. I'm going to get my sister's blood factory.

i dye and spin my own very soft yarns (some of them really really fancy!) and i also knit and crochet lots of things with yarn from the store, also. i wondered if i could make you a fun hat to keep your head warm? have your mum let me know if this is okay and if there is anything special i should know about it.

you are the cutest and bravest little artist i have ever seen!
