There will be showers of blessings......

The name of the song title tells it all....God is so good to us all, all the time.....

Update on Heaven Nicole.....Last night at midnight Heavens white cell count came back at 1.8 with an ANC of 820.....then this morning we received news that today is her 1st day of engraftment!!! Praise the Lord for He has been so good to us.

We still need everyone to pray for grafts vs. leukemia, the grafts vs. host to fade and go away, for a successful engraftment and also when she has 3 days of an ANC of 500 and above and a good WBC count the Dr's will make me an appointment to get my central line removed.

Heaven has been such a strong trooper through all this, as come tomorrow we have been her for 4 months and she has been confined to her room for 3 and a half months.....but the wonderful thing is, we can still look at each other, say "I love you" and know that we can still count on each other for strength.

I have to praise my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for had it not been for Him, none of this would be possible. I thank Him for guiding the Dr's to find a plan, I thank Him for the wonderful group of RN's that has worked with Heaven tirelessly to keep her encouraged and positive. I thank Him for this opportunity to bring her down to Duke Childrens (for there are some that can't get here that needs to), I thank Him for our insurance company (Cigna) wow have they been such a blessing, I thank Him for our family...even though the road was rough, we hung in there and leaned on each other, I thank Him for our friends who have been the silent watchers waiting for the right time to call to give a word of encouragement or just an ear to listen, I thank everyone (family, friends and those we may never meet on this side) for all the prayers as they mean so much to us, for the calls as all of you called at just the right time, for listening when we needed to cry and not being afraid to speak with compassion, for being there whenever I called, mainly, for just being there when you were needed.

We pray that the abundance of love that flows from the Throne of heaven to be gracefully poured upon all who have been with us through this journey.....though we aren't finished just yet, we are now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path"

"Call unto me and I will answer thee and i will show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not"

"I can do ALL things through Christ which strengteneth me"

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine"

These are just a few of the Word of God that has helped us through, there are many, many more. Again, I say "THANK YOU Jesus for such a wonderful blessing and THANK YOU to everyone else for all you fervent prayers, calls, cards, gifts and just those simple hello's that we received...we love you all and you all mean so much to us. <3
