07/18/05 07:07:00 - Types of packages accepted..

Well, this past week has been full of new findings. The donor for Aren's bone marrow has been contacted and given a choice of three dates to harvest the marrow - August 17, 18, or the 24. Aren needs to be admitted to the hospital ten days prior to the actual transplant for chemo and radiation treatments so doing the math means Aren will be admitted on the seventh of August...a little earlier than we expected, but a good thing none the less.

I spoke with the transplant coordinator in DC and she told me about packages and such for Aren if anyone is interested. Aren MAY NOT receive balloons, any kinds of flowers/plants, or stuffed animals due to the infection risk so please don't send any. He will be able to receive books, video games, crayons, action figures, or things of that sort, but they request that you leave the original wrappings on all items to help reduce the possibility of infection.

I think that about sums it up for now. I will post more information as it becomes available.
