Today was a big day and God was with us. Everything went very smoothly with no bad reactions or side effects. We even saw glimpses of Dave’s great sense of humor. All the kids were there, along with two of Dave’s brothers, and it was a wonderful thing to experience together. Our nurse, Eartha, was so perfect as she prayed along with us and enjoyed the “God songs” we had playing.
We have many reasons to be hopeful. The doctors and nurses commented about how strong and healthy Paul’s stem cells were. That was very encouraging. Now we pray that those stem cells go to work in Dave’s body and do their thing. And we pray that Dave’s body accepts them with very few side effects in the next few weeks. We could still have some tough days ahead, but we know that we will get through them.
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Philippians 4:4
Let’s all rejoice together in what God has done today!
