Sorry for the delay in posting about Thursday’s clinic appointment. Sometimes my brain is full and I just need to zone out a bit before talking/writing about things. So, the biopsy came back negative for GVHD (Graft v Host disease). The staff all felt certain that is what it was so the thinking is this…it could be that the wrong area was biopsied and/or It could be that if they biopsied another area in the future it might be positive. I, of course, asked well, is it a good thing or a bad thing? The reply was it is just a thing. Even though we were told that it is a good thing to have some GVHD, his doctor told us that not everyone who does well has it. Also, it could be chronic and not acute which is different. I asked, should I panic? Because I need to know upfront if I should panic. I was told, absolutely no reason to panic.See why my brain was full? Sigh. So, we just keep plugging along, keeping an eye on it and we go back next Thursday for our next check up.
Please start praying for good results for Bo’s upcoming scans. He has one on February 23rd and three on March 2nd. I would especially appreciate prayers for a peace going into these. (I will tell you a secret, they freak me out a bit and I have often recruited people to sit with me just to keep me sane). Continuing to pray thru this journey and thankful that God always has our backs. I am thanking Him ahead of time for the good results!
The following was part of my devotions this morning…
“I am your strength and shield. I plan out each day and have it ready for you, long before you arise from bed. I also provide the strength you need each step of the way. Instead of assessing your energy level and wondering about what’s on the road ahead, concentrate on staying in touch with Me. My power flows freely into you through our open communication. Refuse to waste energy worrying and you will have strength to spare.” Jesus Calling
