in the interest of maintaining as much anonymity as one can on the internet, i’ve decided to refer to my wife as firefly. she is, after all, a volunteer firefighter and emt, so it fits her, and i’ve gotten clearance to use it from the lady herself. here she is training:

she truly amazes me sometimes. a few years ago my sister had a collision during a softball game and firefly was right there to help–well, until she was sent off by the team’s resident nurse at the time to tend to me because i was freaking out. well, you would have too if it was your sister lying in the grass, not moving and covered in blood. it was so scary.

so there you have it. herein is the story of bluedaisyus and the firefly. do with it what you will.

    I love the name, it fits. Choosing a donor is so surreal. We really took awhile to decide. My best advice, not that you asked for it :-), pick out your top 5, have her do the same. Trade stacks and weed out the no’s based soley on your opinion. When you finally end up with only a couple, trade back and talk about why you kept those donors. The “winner” will become obvious very quickly. BTW, always have a second choice in case the first one doesn’t pan out. Good luck! I am so excited for you.

    oh, i’ll take any advice i can get! that’s a good idea. i’ve printed off one copy of the donor list and started marking it up, but i’ll print off another for her. the info i have is basic (nationality, hair/eye color, hair type, skin type, height, education and career), so i was thinking that if we can narrow it down to 5 or so we can see about getting the expanded info and health profiles for them. that also might help with the decision. it is totally surreal.
