      First I have to apologize for the lack of updates I have not been providing for any of your following this.  So much is going on in our world that unfortunately the blog is one of the first things that gets lost.
      So within the last month Kate got a Bone Marrow Biopsy at the beginning of May and just last Wednesday she got the very painful Lumbar Puncture.  She has had the Lumbar Punctures before but it didn't whoop her ass like it did this time.  She was throw up sick and fevers for about three days but she is doing better now.
      We have been pretty firm on the not doing the COVID vaccine since Kate's platelets are so low but her doctor (Dr. Yang) insists that she either get the vaccine or die if she gets COVID.  Well that sales pitch got Kate and I to go get the Pfizer Vaccine from Kroger.  We had to drive to Clarkston (about 40min) to get the Pfizer vaccine since the reviews we read its the safer of the choices and Pfizer is the only one offered to kids which made me feel better about going with the Pfizer Vaccine.  Yesterday (Sunday) we got our second shot and Kate was very warm but no fever.  I got diarrhea around 5am this morning which was around 4 trips between 5-6 but other than that no idea even got the shot.
      I purchased a couple of different things to help raise Kate's platelets up naturally in hopes it would help prepare her for this Bone Marrow Transplant currently scheduled for the beginning of August.

      Kelsey has been one of Kates best friends since she was very young. Kelsey has started a fund raiser which you can see below.  Her website is https://KelseyCrafts.com to order and get more information.

      This has been a straight up nightmare.  My CentOS 7 server has been updating just fine via yum through our proxy and all of a sudden it stopped working.  This blog is some troubleshooting I've done to try and figure out the issue.
      FIRST, validate your repos are correct.  This is what I have on my server

      So Kate received a phone call from her onacologist Dr. Yang mentioning that her Bone Marrow Biopsy and MRD test have come back negative so not finding any sign of cancer but he is still concerned why Kate's body isn't healing.  Her platelets are not increasing as they should which is making it difficult to continue the necessary aggressive treatment keeping the cancer dead and gone.  He has requested Kate talk to a bone marrow transplant representative to discuss options.
      Obviously this has Kate very scared and nervous since finding a bone marrow match is very very difficult since many people don't want to go through the pain but roughly 20 days of pain to donate bone marrow could and does save someone's life.  Unfortunately the cut off for donating bone marrow is the age of 44.
      PLEASE PLEASE Consider donating bone marrow and save someone's life.  Check out the process by clicking here
      If you are between the ages of 18 and 44 patients especially need you (some like Kate or even Kate herself). Research shows that cells from younger donors lead to more successful transplants. Doctors request donors in the 18-44 age group 86% of the time for successful transplant.
      BE A HERO to someone who needs you save their life.  Only costs to you is your time and possibly 20 days of discomfort.

      Finding a match is only part of the battle, then you have the cost.  A 2012 study that examined the overall costs of bone marrow transplantation including donor search and costs during the first year post-transplantation found the overall cost to be between $35,000-$780,000.
