You'll never guess what happened yesturday around 2pm!!!! COLIN CAME HOME!!!!! He was a whole day earlier this time, so we've had a great time already since he's been home! He's feeling great and he was walking 5km a day in the hospital so his body would flush faster and it worked! PRAISE GOD!!! We also got the long awaited call today from the Doc's on UNIT 57 that Colin's bone marrow biopsy came back ALL CLEAR OF ANY CANCER!!! We have so much to be thankful for, we are so very blessed! So this marks another glorious 10 day stretch of being home altogether!!! I pray it goes slow, so we can fully enjoy every second of it! It was hard on both Colin and i this time, we are just both tired, being separated...having to go through this process again. BUT we will take it one day at a time, some better than others, but God will sustain us through this, just like he did the last time around!
I will keep you posted on our time at home...thanks for your prayers on the bone marrow biopsy tests....God answered! THANK YOU!

Luv, Melissa

  2. Hi guys,

    Glad you're back home together as a family again. I came across a Henri Nouwen quote tonight that I thought you might like to read:
    "If we want to avoid the suffering or leaving, we will never experience the joy of loving. Love is stronger than fear, life stronger than death, hope stronger than despair. We have to trust that the risk of loving is always worth taking."

    So glad to hear that you have had some good news. You are in my thoughts often, and I keep you in my prayer. Stay strong - you can beat this!
