Home stretch

29 Apr

We are almost there. The last two bags of chemo come in the a.m. I am counting down the hours to return home. I obviously will be recovering, but getting outside these walls and enjoying my family at home versus on a bed that goes up and down and dirty floors is highly anticipated! As we move forward we continue to pray that the cancer in my marrow would respond to this treatment. We need a response to these drugs. We are trusting for His leading. Thankfully the gums have responded and we hope that this is a glimpse into a bigger response than imagined. Here’s to one more night in a stinky, sterile hospital. I know there are more to come but for this week I am glad it’s the last!


Aunt Tracey stopped for final hugs before school. Costume party for ladybug Hayleigh! A good Monday!

    Brennan manning was told by his spiritual advisor, ” you do not need any more insights into the faith.”" The most urgent need in your life is to trust what you have received.”
    Allie, you are trusting what you have received, trust and faith beyond an intellectual threshold, one with arms and legs and the power they bring to a race.
    Two bags to go, some more hospital time, then home to family and friends. This blog you have created and maintained lets many others be with you, pray for you and be convicted and encouraged in their own faith. Rock on.

    I adore your girls….growing into precious little ladies. They are YOU – a reflection of the models they have seen in you and your mom. As Dave Burnham used to say – ‘what an heritage’ :)
