The reality of my situation and the radical nature of my treatments struck me today. That is one of the weird things for us, some days come and go with out much thought about cancer, while at other moments the weight of it all feels crushing. But, in His grace He gives us moments of rest and joy which cancer cannot infect.
Today I had one of my final visits with Dr. Petrus, which as always was good and informative. A part of my processing this journey. I was emotional but mostly because I must continue to face the reality of loss of control and embrace complete dependence on the Almighty and His control. I also talked with my bone marrow coordinator and got some more dates on the calendar. It looks like by late June or very early July I will get the transplant.
I spent some time at the zoo today with the girls, we had fun. The weather has been amazing here. I am grateful for the sunshine and glorious temperatures. We have taken on a new task with our deck. I am excited about the end results. I am thankful for helping hands.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, (Romans 8:1-3 ESV)
