My dad just called.  The Fred Hutch Center has found two bone marrow donors with a perfect match for him.  My dad goes into 30 days of preparatory chemotherapy tomorrow to get ready for the transfusion.  What a concept – they’re going to pretty much completely kill his immune system over the next month.  By the time the PDC is finished, my dad may be leukemia-free.  Holy shit.

Kick some ass, Dad – I still need you around.
