It's official! Elena has been admitted into the Bone Marrow Transplant unit at Egleston. We found out around 5:30 this evening, as we waited anxiously for the results of Elena's liver enzyme test, that her numbers have gone down sightly and we are able to proceed as planned. Praise God!
So, the rest of our evening will be spent unloading the car, unpacking, and settling in our room.
The only thing scheduled for tomorrow, Day -8, is two sessions of radiation. The first one at 5:30 am! If you are an early riser, pray for us as our nurse will be escorting us through tunnels to the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory at 5:15 am.
So thankful for all of the prayers! Keep them coming!
Ending tonight with verses from our friend Stacee.
This morning she told us that this was her prayer for us today:
"May He give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift our banners in the name of God. May the Lord grant all your requests."
We are claiming these verses throughout Elena's BMT!
