We made it home around dinner time this evening. Just wanted to say thank you to each of you for your prayers, emails, cards, encouragement! Even though we're home, it certainly doesn't seem like he's 100%. . and I know that's because he isn't. I don't like to see him hurting, but am thankful that each day that passes brings us that much closer to him being back to feeling 100%.
God has been good to us. . has provided meals for the family while I was staying up there at the hospital with him. Has provided a supportive DMS staff ( my sonography program) who have been willing to work with me and allow me to miss time from school so I could be there for Bryan. The simple fact that God allowed us to find this cancer before it had a chance to spread: Well, that's just still hard to believe!! We're so grateful.
Continued prayers are needed for strength, and no complications during the healing process. I'd really like to see the Lord draw us closer to Him and to each other during this time as well. Bryan has already said how he never wants to forget how I was there for him during this time. And here I've felt pretty much helpless in the matter because I can't make the pain go away. Yet is has been an honor to be there to help in every way possible.
And without you all holding us up in prayers before the Lord, we'd be in a different situation. I've been so tired, and on the go for sooo long now, that I've not actually had time to mentally process all that has occurred, so it's really hard to grasp just how good God has been. . .but I readily admit without God's goodness, this would have turned out to be a totally different situation. So I thank the LORD!
I better close for now. . .he'll be needing his next dose of meds around 2:00 a.m. . . which is just around the corner!
Many many thanks!!
