Day +11 Engraftment

Katie and Jordan came over last night and fixed me dinner! Love, love, love.

And today is a great day too!  Even though I woke up and cried in the shower.  That’s not an uncommon occurrence though, crying isn’t all bad.  Sometimes it’s a little cleansing.

The doc who saw Bob today said those magic words….we are seeing signs of engraftment.  Blood counts show white cells are growing….Bob has neutrophils!!!  White count up to 200.

Platelets down to 8, so we’re at the hospital now for a platelet transfusion.  Still have a bit to wait for counts to come out of the danger zone, but we see light at the end of the tunnel.  (Rusty always says “I hope that light at the end of this tunnel isn’t an oncoming train!”).   Nope,  no train wrecks this time.  Been there, done that.

Had our usual nurse this morning, love that girl.  Talked about faith and God again.  Good day at the clinic.

Mom…..she needs a good day.  Told me yesterday that she is weary.  Weary.  I hate that word.  This morning she said “I am just finished feeling this way; so tired of it all.  But when I am weak God is strong in me.  I need Him to take over now.”

God hear her, Hear her cry.  Hold her up, strengthen her.  See her faith.  She is leaning on You.  Pick her up.  Lift her head.  I pray for her as Jesus did for Peter–that her faith would not fail.  JC “But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not. ”   God help her to keep beleiving, “Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole”. Engraft new life into mom today God.  Please.  

i believe.
