Tomorrow, It's Only a Day Away

Ecclesiastes 3:1-3
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven, a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build."

With apologies to Annie, tomorrow may always be a day away, but it's going to be a great day for us! After months of anticipation, and more than a week of preparation, tomorrow is the day for Tammy's bone-marrow transplant. We are very excited for what the future holds.

It's amazing how everything has fit together during this treatment. The combination of medicines, all with their own purpose, has been delivered to Tammy's body to prepare it for the transplant. She's been on an almost-constant drip of a variety of treatments since Monday afternoon. The doctors have been terrific. They have so much knowledge. They have not been surprised by anything so far.

God has not been surprised by anything either. Things the doctors are "estimating" are completely in His plan and under His control. He has infinite knowledge. It's very comforting.

Tammy is doing very well today. She has no fever and is not sick to her stomach. With all of her bone-marrow cells destroyed, she has no energy. But she looks good. She's ready for the recovery period to start.

She has received dozens of cards and phone calls wishing her well. They mean a lot to her. Please keep them coming. And most of all, please keep praying.
