When I went for the six month evaluation of the stem cell procedure in June, the doctor was most pleased with the results of the tests he performed to check my progress. Because of the positive response to the first stem cell infusions, from the doctor’s perspective as well as my observations, he recommended I consider having another round of three infusions. After praying about it and sensing that this was what we were to do, I began the next round of infusions two weeks ago and completed the third one this past Thursday.
One of God’s blessings in this process has been the amazing people we have met on the medical teams. This round we went to a clinic that was close to the church. What a joy and privilege to meet Dr. Kim and his staff. They have such gracious spirits and a passion to see people healed.

I have also begun stretching exercises at home in addition to going to the gym. Three of the ones I am to do are lying on the floor. The first few days I had to really talk myself into lying down, knowing that it was going to be difficult to get back up. Even though it is not graceful yet, I have figured out a way to get up “all by myself”. I’m even getting up a few seconds faster now.
Although I have had the additional cells, am exercising and stretching, we know that it is God who brings healing. Please join us in praying as we trust and ask Him to do so.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
