(Update from Larry)
We started the day with our usual breakfast in the hotel restaurant. We are beginning to feel right at home. The head waiter came up and shook my hand, just like at Guadalajara in Houston. Deb ordered her usual "one scrambled egg". The first day had to be at least two eggs. Today looked more like "four" eggs. Don't believe me, here's a photo.
This is the Big Day! The stem cell transplant begins at around 3:00 this afternoon. Debbie will go first before the other MS patient.
Dr. Andrade just came in a few minutes ago. We shared with him some of scriptures we are claiming today. He explained how he likes to take the day slow and prepare spiritually by praying that God will bless all that he does today. He recognizes the significance of what will happen.
Deb continues to work with Antonio and physical therapy. He is explaining the exercises he wants her to do tonight at the hotel, and beyond. Exercise and activity will be extremely important in the days ahead. Pray for stamina and determination. We know this will be very important!
