I was infused with my daughter’s umbilical cord blood and we just waited every day for the blood to multiply or for my bone marrow to rebuild. The transplant was a cure and I’m now in remission because my bone marrow was replaced with my daughter’s stem cells, which produced a whole new bone marrow. She saved my life!
It’s a good insurance policy. If something does happen to me, or his new brother or sister, than we have this option.
We took so long to get pregnant and have a baby and the last thing we wanted to do was put that child’s life in danger. If there’s anything you can do to protect that child, you’re going to do it.
