I just opened today's mail and got a letter from the National Marrow Registry. Apparently I'm a potential match for someone needing a bone marrow or stem cell transplant! I registered 14+ years ago and have never been called to donate. I'm supposed to call them and tell them if I'm still available to be a donor and then give them a blood sample for further matching. I'm kind of excited at the possibility of being able to do this. I'll keep ya'll posted.

That's great Fisher's Mom! I'm registered too. I got something once that said I was a potential donor and they would let me know if they needed me. Evidently they found someone else.

Thanks ya'll! Of course, it's the first time I've ever been even a potential match so maybe it will be like with Barbara and someone else will be a better match. But the idea of being able to help someone get healthy with almost no effort on my part - how often does that kind of opportunity come along?

I saw the marks of my chemistry lab questions and report as well as the mark for a microbiology term test I had on last Wednesday. Chemistry was 100% on the questions (only were 2 questions) and report was 85%. On the microbiology test, somehow I got a mark higher than I expected, which was 75%.I was very busy, so I didn't get tons of studying in that I had hoped for. Anyways, I got 89%, which I'm absolutely amazed at.

In addition, I made a successful dinner and a great cake with few injuries (such as cutting my finger on broken glass and a few other injuries as usual). I just told my parents about the marks and my mother was so glad, I thought she was going to faint. My father was also happy at the marks.

Today must have also been a good day since my cousin not only passed a math test but got a 70% on it. That may seem unimpressive to some, however, before she was getting marks around 30% then slowly got to getting 50%. Now, her last one was 70%.
