This evening Maly and I took a walk to the mailboxes to get the mail. There was an envelope from the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center. When we got back to the house, I put Maly in the bathtub and while she was taking a bath, I opened the envelope. I was a little hesitant because I thought the contents might contain bad news about the patient.
To my surprise, I found a check for $251.94 for my mileage driving to and from San Antonio.
I’m taking that check to the bank first thing tomorrow and then I’m going to write a check for double that amount, paid to the order of the National Marrow Donor Program.
