Road Trip

Tomorrow, bright and early, we start our journey to San Francisco. George and I pick up Cindy, Deb, and Maggie at six o'clock and hope we don't have many traffic jams that slow us down. We have meetings at 10:00, 11:00 and 1:00. I expect that we will be setting up the dates for the various treatments leading up to and including the stem cell transplant. One meeting is with a social worker to discuss at home care following the hospital time (3 weeks). That's why we have Cindy, Deb, and Maggie with us. I couldn't just tell the social worker that I have lots of friends looking after me, I had to bring them with me! These faithful friends are giving up a full day to meet with the social worker for me. That's friendship! Please pray that all goes well- from travelling to setting up dates.

Hi Sue
This is a big week for you. You continue to be in my prayers & thoughts before God. It's amazing to me how often you cross my mind. Perhaps God is whispering you in my heart. I'm glad you've got folks to help out, & such depth of friends.

The partner of an organist in a church I served had cancer a few years ago. Every day members of the church would leave food in the refrigerator for Mark to take home. Soon, every time he opened the kitchen cabinets, out tumbled all the empty containers. He said they all reminded him that they'd been full of love.

It sounds as though you have plenty of friends filling your spaces & life with love, too. I thank God that you've touched so many - & now they touch you.
