We're Home!!

Thankfully, after 29 long days, all of our family is going to be sleeping under one roof!! Since Elena's counts are heading up, and we have such a fabulous oncology team, we were discharged from the hospital this afternoon! We can't tell you how nice it is to be able to walk from one room to another and wish both of our girls sweet dreams. Everyone will sleep well tonight!

Tomorrow morning we will meet with the bone marrow transplant team at Egelston to discuss the next steps on this journey. Please pray for Elena's counts to continue to rise as she is still very susceptible to infection. Please also pray for calm hearts and clear minds for each of us as we hear and process all of the information forthcoming. Pray for the wisdom needed to make right decisions and for peace throughout the coming weeks so that we may find joy in every day.

In Him,
The Tates

"May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests."
Psalm 20:4-5
