a day of rest....T minus 4

Here we are at the hospital.  Daddy and the littles are here now.  A close friend will pick them up and they will stay there for a week or so.  It should take the edge off missing mommy (me) and give my mom (granny) a chance to work and do other things.  She is manning the home front, playing mommy for me.  I (we) are so thankful for her.

It is a bit hard to believe that we are here right now.  Although we do fully 'believe' for healing.  Braveheart's three days of very high dose chemo is in and since he is healed, more chemo ever!!  He is as he stoically states,
"Tired, bored, weak and sick."

I think he is doing very well and no vomiting is a major plus too.  Many prayer are being answered.

So, after his rest today he will get three days of TOTAL BODY RADIATION 2 x day.  The donor harvest is Thursday!

I stay right here in my joy filled bubble, trying with moderate success to let some of the things around me just bounce off all the while praying for them.  One little girl died up here of complications. Sadly, my man even knew the father from work.  Another boy has relapsed after his transplant. Mothers are hurting.  There is more but I feel like God has covered us with His wings just like Psm 91 says.

Be on the lookout for TRANSPLANT DAY!!  SEPTEMBER NINTH!!

Don't forget to get swabbed.

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
