We have been overwhelmed with support from family and friends as we start on this long journey. Julie has taken Tammy to the hospital to get a blood transfusion, because her hemoglobin dropped too low. She's getting two units, so we hope she'll have more energy when it's done.
I am developing a chest cold, something I don't need, and neither does Tammy. The doctor has prescribed an antibiotic, which I will fill shortly. In the meantime, some dear friends are in our front yard raking and bagging all our remaining leaves. It wouldn't be good for me to breathe in the leaves, so this wonderful family of five is serving the Lord by serving us.
We had a long list of people to call, because so many people have offered to help. We appreciate that so much. We know that this is not going to be easy, but with the support of so many people who care about us, it will be easier. Of course, the best help anybody can give us is to pray for Tammy. We believe so much in the power of prayer, and we feel like we're floating on a large pillow of prayers. We're very thankful for that.
We'll post again when Tammy gets home so we can update how the transfusion helped.
