We have been here a week now. Some days go by quickly, others seem to take forever. Today, we are happy to say that Elena has completed the preparatory part of this journey. We are sad to say that many negative side effects are happening.
Last night, was not rest filled and today has been difficult to say the least. We will spare you all the ugly details.
Now, we wait and pray.
Pray that Elena will stay strong and battle through the negative side effects.
Pray that Elena's pain and other side effects will be managed.
Pray that each and every remaining leukemia cell in Elena's body has been killed by the radiation and chemo.
Pray that not a single cancer cell has survived.
Pray that the chemo and radiation has only harmed the cancer and not Elena's body or mind.
Pray that we can find joy in today and Tuesday, as we await Wednesday's transplant.
Pray that we will be able to find peace and rest in these days.
Pray that we hold fast to His truth - "You are the God who performs miracles." Psalm 77:14.
Hoping you will be joining us in prayer.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
