May 6, 2015 - Day 1 Cancun

We left the house a little after 5:30 this morning, to head to Pasadena.  My sister, Robin, took us to the airport.  Since there was no traffic, we made it in record time.  Check-in at the airport, went smoothly.  After a stop at Peets coffee, we headed to the gate to wait for the plane. 

The skies were somewhat dark and there had been a little rain.  After boarding, our pilot came on the intercom and stated that he had just flown in from Washington D.C. and they had quite a bit of turbulence.  He requested that the steward and stewardess remain seated for the entire flight.  I did send up a quick prayer.  Amazingly, the flight was smooth and we encountered no turbulence.  I don’t know which was the bigger miracle today – the calming of the skies or the calming of my nerves.  I’m definitely grateful for both.

Due to the distance, Larry needing to take care of luggage, and the need for speed, I rode in a wheelchair at the airport.  What a blessing.  The skycap knew exactly where we needed to go and the best way to get there.  He took us through special lines and had us through customs and immigration in record time, even with hundreds of people going through the lines.

A driver for Celltex met us outside the airport.  After loading our luggage, he gifted us with a bottle of refreshing cold water to enjoy on the ride to the hotel.  The hotel is new and is right next to the hospital where I will be having the stem cell therapy.  We’ll be able to walk there.

I’m already spoiled.  Larry has unpacked the suitcases while I am updating this.

Cancun is in the same time zone as Houston, which will help in knowing the exact times of treatment.

For Thursday:
9:00    physical and blood work at the hospital

Blessed and challenged from Bible readings today.

From our pastor’s devotional this morning:
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
Romans 8:11

From my reading:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Galatians 5:22-23

Scripture of the day on Bible Gateway:
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

James 5:16
