Infusion #1 Update

The anticipation of Tuesday’s infusion caused me to be a very light sleeper Monday night.  It was kind of like the night before Christmas or the night before the first day of school (as a student and as a teacher)…  I could hardly wait to get up the next morning to see what the Bible Gateway “Verse of the Day” was going to be.  Sure enough, it was just what we needed.

Psalm 27:14
Wait for the LORD;
   be strong and take heart
   and wait for the LORD.

I went to Bible Study at church Tuesday morning; we had lunch, and then went to the clinic for the first stem cell infusion.  We arrived 45 minutes early, but I didn’t want to risk being even one second late for the procedure.  

During these days, it has been amazing to see the people that God is providing to be part of the healing team.  The pictures are from the day of Infusion #1, October 18, 2011.

Each syringe holds 50,000,000 stem cells

And Larry has been there every step of the way.  You continue to be a very special part of this journey, too.  Your prayers and encouragement have been felt and much appreciated.  What a blessing!

It will be important to continue to follow the diet I am on, work out at the gym, exercise at home, and walk.  On Thursday morning, I noticed that it was easier to get on and off some of the equipment at the gym and I can now do some of the machines that I haven’t done in a while.  Most of all, I want to wait for the LORD, be strong, take heart and wait for the LORD.
