A Sigh of Praise and Relief

As i write this, i'm crying, but not because i'm sad, but because i'm in awe at how our prayers have been heard! GOD IS SO GOOD! Colin is better today, they have his fever under control and he was able to keep lunch down! As we talked today, he feels so much better, just a bit tired. The Doctor thinks it was a nasty 'stomach bug'. With all of Colin's chemo, he has no anti-bodies built up anymore, so everything in his 28 years of being sick has been erased to a newborn state! So although he has somewhat of an immune system, he has nothing is storage to fight these 'new' germs off anymore. I'm just glad we were able to get him treated here in Medicine Hat, as far as we know, he'll have some antibiotics and then when he's able to keep things down and feeling better, i'm sure they'll let him come home! PRAISE GOD!

I have no choice but to be in a constant state of Praise to a God who has been so real, and so faithful to hear our prayers and protect Colin from anything more serious. As one comment read, this is a minor bump in the road, and we have been SO blessed to have had no illness this far. We're on the home stretch and all Colin wants is to finish our time at home, "at home". I just can almost taste the day we'll be able to come home to STAY!

Thank you for being there, to pray when we need it, for your comments to encourage us and give us peace. There is nothing more comforting than knowing, we have powerful prayers being sent up on our behalf, i've said it before, and i'll say it yet again, it's scary to think of where we would be without all of you! WE ARE FOREVER THANKFUL TO YOU ALL!

i'll make sure i write more as we get news back from our Doc's here, and i hope that the next time we post, it will be to report Colin is home, safe and sound!

The biggest Hugs of Thanks to each of you!

Luv, Melissa
