06/10/16: Laying in bed with a broken back. Insurance has denied paying for the surgery needed. We are using what is left in the HelpHOPELive fund but concerned there will not be enough for any complications or follow up for the stem cell transplant (which was successful, Praise God!!).

Praise report: I started PT yesterday! I am nervous bc of my fatigue, but excited to make some progress too. This PT has experience with chemo patients and wants me to take it very slow, steady, and stick with the plan. I agreed! Most of the progress of HSCT is seen in the first year. I want to take that year very seriously and do what my part in this process. We wouldn't be here without ALL of your help and we take your investment seriously as well. God is so good to get us this far! Thank you, Jesus!!
