I haven't reported anything for a while, mainly because there just wasn't anything to report. Well now there is. At long last the transplant has been scheduled. We are due to be in Chicago on Aug. 8 to begin the injections to promote stem cell growth. The stem cells will be harvested between Aug. 13 and 15, with the actual transplant scheduled for Aug. 22. In a slight change of plans, they asked that we remain in Chicago for the entire process, so we will be living in Chicago until about mid Sept. All we have to do now is find a place to live. All the prayers are about to pay off. I do realize that this is not the end of this journey, but the beginning. There is a long road ahead, but with your continued prayers I am sure the journey will be easier. I am slowly learning more and more to place my trust in God, and to allow God to guide this journey.
Thanks for your prayers and support.
