Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. Psalm 116:7
Twenty five years ago, before I was married, I was diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera (a blood cancer). I was told at that time that I would need a bone marrow transplant in the next two years. The Lord has given me all of this time and three wonderful children which I was told I could never have.
Last week I received the call I knew would be coming one day. The bone marrow transplant needs to take place within 4-6 weeks (beginning of April). This week I will start with five days of chemo. I will then have a week off and rotate like this until I go into the hospital for the transplant.
