Transplant Day is Scheduled!

We will be checking into University Hospital on Tuesday morning for a 2-3 week stay. Sabine will get her big chemo dose and then be transplanted on Thursday (April 30).

Our cancer support group has been wonderful. Over the months we have heard many success stories surrounding transplants along with one or two not-so-successful stories. Why is it I remember the bad ones?

Sabine is in good shape and a very good candidate for a successful transplant. But we do need your good thoughts and prayers to get her through this. (I'll take a few, too.)

Spring is a good time for a transplant as we see our neighbors tilling the soil and preparing to plant this year's crops. The days are getting warmer, the sun is shining brighter and I will be thinking and praying for "strong roots, nourishment, and growth" following our "planting" on April 30.

Blessing to all of you.
