Today is KDd 4-7. It is also the anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/2011. Let us all remember those who died and those who lost loved ones on that terrifying day. Deliver them from their pain and suffering, O God, and provide them with the knowledge of your peace and grace, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Today I met with a psychologist and a psychiatrist at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, SCCC, as a requirement by my insurance company to insure that I am mentally prepared for this procedure. I’m glad to say that I fooled them completely, 😉
It seems that my short term memory is still quite good and that I do have an accurate understanding of what a transplant is about, the risks and the possible rewards. I also have a superb support system, mostly in the name of Kathleen, and also in so many other friends and family that I truly feel very relaxed and confident about this upcoming procedure.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing.
Oh Karl how I wish we were closer to be able to support both of you in the next few weeks. If you want or need me there PLEASE give me a call. I’m only 4 hours away and have lots of PTO time available to me. You know my number…I love you both so very much and have for a very long time, you both are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Wow! You both are truly the best friends ever!
