There's No Place Like Home

Dorothy had to endure quite a journey before clicking those heels and returning home. It's been a long 18 days and word on the street is we get to go home today. No need to click the heels, just sign the slip and get me out of here. Mireya is ready and super excited. Her platelet count is hanging tough, her white count has increased, but is still very low, the red count is borderline, but she should be fine.

This is Day 1 of a 4 day Daniel Fast (Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, water and 100% fruit juices, no meats, no sweets) where our church, family and friends will be turning down the full plate to pray and unite as one in prayer for Mireya. We will stand strong together trusting God to move in this situation and praying that his will be done. It's possible we'll return to the yellow brick road later this week, but not because God can't do it or has denied our requests, but because there is more physical work to be attended to. The Lord gave us a way out in Jalen, and should we find ourselves back here for the transplant, our 'specific' prayers may change, but we have a confidence in Christ that everything we've been praying and believing for in the end will come to pass. Mireya will be made whole and her health will be completely restored.

I'm looking forward to being at home with my entire family and sleeping in my bed with my husband. We'll continue our mission of keeping Reya well and guarded against illness or infection as best we can. In these last few months, I've learned to take very little for granted. I've gained a greater appreciation for EVERYTHING, being especially mindful not to overlook even the smallest of things. Thank you so much for your continued love, support, prayers and acts of kindness. It has been such a blessing to us.
