Today is transplant day -3.

Tomorrow morning I head down to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center for a 10:00 AM check-in for my ASCT. Kathleen will drop me off and head back to work. As most of you know, Kathleen and I do not do well apart from each other. Kathleen also does not do well with interrupted sleep. Therefore, so she can continue to work and be good at what she does, she will only come down to see me this coming weekend. We both believe that, although it will be difficult for us to be apart from each other, it will be best for her. We will speak via text and by FaceTime.

I remain totally convinced that through the grace of God, this procedure will go very well and will rid my body of cancerous myeloma cells. I have been hesitant to go through this in the past, but now am convinced that this is what the Holy Spirit is leading me to as a way for Kathleen and I to keep our promise to each other to celebrate our 85th birthdays with each other at the least.

So, thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers; they are working and will continue to work.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing.

Amen.
