i must first send out a congrats to the saints, even though we so badly wanted to see the colts win. drew brees was truly amazing!!!
speaking of amazing, melissa has had a pretty amazing day herself. she walked three laps today through the unit floor with Mom and Uncle Dan alongside her!!! woohoo!!! she was even then able to take a quick shower. after which, she was exhausted. but, we praise the lord as he is increasing her strength slowly each day. thank you, lord.
she wanted me to give a big shout out to all the nursing staff in the bone marrow transplant unit!!! you are each so wonderfully good to her. she thanks you for your love and care. our entire family thanks you!!!
continue to pray for her strength to increase. we are still waiting to see her white blood cell count begin to rise. with the type of transplant she had, it takes a bit longer to see that initial increase, but it will happen. as i mentioned before, her doctor is pleased with her progress.
"he gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might he increases strength causing it to multiply and making it to abound." isaiah 40:29
