A Brighter Morning

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement!
We are thankful that today is indeed a brighter day!

Elena got plenty of rest last night, her counts are beginning to rise - praise God! and her MRI has been scheduled for 4pm today.
Our sadness, frustration, fear, and disappointment are gradually being replaced with peace.
Today is Elena's 22nd day in the hospital. It is easy to see why these emotions were being felt.

Once again, it is a busy day here at the hospital.

Physical therapy this morning
a meeting with the child life specialist at 1pm
school at 2pm
an MRI at 4pm

Please continue to pray for peace and joy to be felt by all of us.
Please pray for today's MRI and for clear results.

In Him,
The Tates

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." Romans 12:12
