For almost exactly a month,
my husband has been through an
appendectomy and through that,
it was discovered that he had leukemia.
(Chronic Myeloid Leukemia - CML)
Since then, we have been shuffling our
daughter from one very willing
house to another while we have been
attending one doctor appointment
after the next.
It has been a week since J's last
visit with the oncologist.
(did I mention how much I love her? What an angel she is to us!)
It was there that we realized the medicine
she prescribed is working.
Like cut your count by 1/2 well.
That news is so beyond our expectation
the only expectation is that the
Lord has heard your prayers. Our prayers!
He is present in this process,
in the dark days as well as these days of success.
Thank you for your continued
love, support, prayer & encouragement.
Thank you for
texting, calling, sending cards, emailing,
and posting on my blog.
We are encouraged, hopeful
as well as eternally grateful for this time
together as a family, and sharing
this with you all.
We are so blessed.
SO - cheers to a great weekend,
a happy Friday - and a recipe.
This came from my sweet friend from high school, Anne.
As I originally posted the story about her...
her sister is the ever so fabulous Lulu & Co!
Lulu's blog is one of the first blogs I read...ever....
...and completely inspired me to start blogging.
And I only found out they were related
after reading for months & months...!
