The peace of God that surpasses all understanding shall guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. In all things give thanks.
Update: It’s stem cell day (I am totally changing the lyrics to the song “for the first time in forever“ to be about this process—so instead of coronation day, it’s stem cell day). Not sure If I expected rockys “Eye of the tiger“ to be playing this morning when we woke up or a disco ball to drop but I will tell you…the transplant came and 15 minutes later it was done. It was infusing a syringe filled with her cells over 15 minutes. So now we wait. We wait for the cells to kick in her bone marrow and implant to get her body/bone marrow restarted. Expectation is that she will have pain, she will have side effects from her bone marrow being wiped out. We have some idea of how to help her. One thing she got an NG tube again…not her favorite or mine for her. Tears streaming down her cheeks and mine they got it in last night. All in all we get another day. God is good.
Ending thought: one thought keeps resonating through my mind…thanksgiving and worship can not exist in the same mindset as worry. A song I listened to, the singer said don’t let your worry be louder than your worship. God is peace. The maker of heaven and earth gives peace.
