My white count is beginning to come down a little bit, which is good! Please pray that this trend will continue! Pray that my body will fight off whatever infection may be present.
I'm starting to have my joint and muscle pain again... this scares me (and hurts a lot). I'm really hoping that this is a fluke and that this surgery will get rid of this pain. I've been laying in weird positions to try and get comfortable, so hopefully this pain will go away!
I continue to be so encouraged by the Romans 5 passage... I rejoice now in my sufferings, with a hope that does not disappoint. My hope isn't in a surgery or a treatment or a doctor... but in the fact that I have peace with God through Jesus Christ... that He has poured out His love on me while I was still His enemy. Whatever happens in this life, I have such great hope in the glory of God. Please pray that I won't be overwhelmed with "what ifs" or with my circumstances and future, but keep my eyes fixed on Christ!
