Day -8: It's Time To Go To Dana Farber

The day has come to head to Dana Farber. We've gotten most of the house prep done that's needed, ordered air purifiers, hung up soap and towel dispensers, ordered the water testing kit, cleared out and painted the room Sarah will stay in when she returns, etc., etc., etc...

Right now, we don't feel like we know what to do. We're just going down to Dana Farber and seeing what happens next. We sort of think we now what to expect, but with absolutely no control over it.

The stress in our house over the last week has been palpable, but we have managed to laugh about stuff just about every day. More and more folks are helping us or are lined up to help us with meals and jobs that need getting done with the house (doors that rotted out, floors that are getting thinner, painting walls, going to the dump). I know I mention the help from others on most of the postings, but it really is an important, valued and appreciated part of what's happening within our family.

It could be a tough weekend/week with the chemo/radiation so please take some time and pray specifically for Sarah to respond favorably to the treatment this week.

Please know that Sarah and all of you are in our prayers as you walk through the next phase of this journey. I learned SO much during the journey I walked with my precious daughter Joy Rose about trusting COMPLETELY in God as that was/is the only way to keep a sane mind! God is being glorified through how you live your lives and I know you'll be a great witness for Him during your time at Dana Farber!! I wish we were closer so we could help in person. Since we're not we'll most definitely be keeping all of you uplifted before God's throne in prayer!!

~~~~Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

You all continue to be in our prayers as you begin the next step in Sarah's treatments. We are praying, not just for Sarah and the family, for also the doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff whom you must rely on during the up coming weeks. May God give them wisdom and guidance as they plan and provide the treatments Sarah needs.

Give God your worries...take to Him your fears. "When I am afraid I will trust in you."
