The Transplant is Complete!

Leviticus 17:11
"For the life of a creature is in the blood..."

It took one hour and 10 minutes (7:10-8:20 p.m.), and the transfusion/transplant is complete. Tammy is resting comfortably. She's probably asleep for the night.

We are blown away by the simplicity. The blood arrived in a small bag. They hooked it up to the IV line and hung it on the pole. We watched as it poured through the tube toward her body. We prayed for the cells as they entered her body and began their journey toward her bones. In about a week, it will start to produce blood cells and she'll start to become A+ instead of O+ very gradually.

Because of the generosity and selflessness of a 37-year-old man, Tammy has the opportunity to get well. Even more, because of a faithful and loving God, she has the opportunity to continue to minister.

Thank you for your prayers. Keep them coming.
