Complete!

Definitely a pretty quick procedure...

But as fast as that was, it definitely whipped her.

She's just resting now.

So now we wait...we wait for those stem cells to make her stronger now and bring her counts back up...

and we wait for the healing to begin...

I have been praying for you all week and you were especially on my mind this morning.

The Lord blesses me most mornings with an unusual gift. I wake up with a song on my mind. This morning I had the lyrics of Mark Harris' song "One True God" on my mind. The first few lines are...

I don't have a God I can put on a stand
Or a God I hold in the palm of my hand
I have a God that's holding me

Melissa, God is holding you in the palm of His hand. He is holding your husband, children and family in the palm of His hand. I am so thankful we serve such a powerful God!!

Thank you, Melissa's sister, for the updates!

Continued prayers!
Becky Sanders

Melissa I really feel like this is the beginning of your final cure. I have faith that God is going to heal you from this. We pray for a quick recovery, a cease to your nausea, and some peaceful rest. Your almost done sweetheart, and the rest of your life can begin.

Love and lots of hugs,

Melissa,
You and Doug have been in our prayers all week. We think about your children and pray for them daily also. We're praying that the peace of God stays with all of you at this time.
