My daughter, Briana, named this necklace for me. Alcyone is a greek mythological figure that you can read about here. This post is about love above and beyond, as with Alcyone. Yesterday, as Briana went with me to my plasmapharesis treatment, she, out of love, and not being asked, took the time and discomfort to donate platetes while she was with me. Most people don't do it because of the 17 gauge needle, and platelets only last 5 days and then have to be discarded. I don't need platelets, they are for other autoimmune disorders and for cancer patients....I need plasma. But that is not the story. The story is that I am proud I raised a loving and unselfish woman. The necklace will be in my etsy shop tonight.
