Emotional Roller Coasters

Paul and I have now joined the ranks of parents who eagerly await the doctors making their morning rounds.  They carry a folded sheet of paper that they usually have in their hand, or a shirt pocket.  And on that sheet are the morning "counts."  After an early morning blood draw, the samples are sent to the lab to measure progress in the blood supply, and the results are sent to the doctors.  The progress I speak of is either for the destruction of unwanted cells, or the building up of healthy cells.  Either way, we wait for the numbers to be announced during morning rounds, hoping for the results to show a positive trend.

I have made a decision with my head not to get on an emotional roller coaster each morning after results are read.  Emotional roller coasters are an energy zapper for me.  We were told that there will be days that try the soul, and we were told that the process is long.  I asked God this morning for a stronger resolve to remain steadfast in faith. Numbers on a piece of paper are no match for God's power and provision.  We are praying each day for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven concerning Qavah. This morning we are resting in Him.

 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Phillipians 4:6
