A Delay, But Still in His Plan

Isaiah 25:1
"O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago."

We just found out that the No. 1 choice for a donor has declined. We don't know anything more about her, except that she was a 20-year-old female. We continue to wish God's blessings for her.

Fortunately we have multiple matches. (We know of one person who has waited for six months and still does not have a match.) We're now on to choice No. 2, a 37-year-old male. The bone-marrow registry will contact him and see if he's willing to be a donor. If so, he will go through the testing to see if he is healthy enough to donate.

This will delay that process for at least two weeks, making the new target date for admission to the hospital March 23. We know that God has a perfect plan. While this did not fit our plan, we have to remember that March 9 was only determined a month ago as the right time based on what we knew then. Whenever the actual date is will be right in God's eyes. That is our hope, and our peace.

Tammy is getting pretty tired, more easily and more often. Please pray for energy for her. She's continuing to work every day her appointment schedule will allow. We're not sure how long that will continue. Please pray for energy for her.

Will continue sending my prayers for Tammy, the Family and the girl who changed her mind.
