Day -1

Holly didn’t feel like blogging today, so I am standing in for her.  She wants you to know that she appreciates all of your comments whether she can respond to them or not.  The ATG treatment has been hard with lots of side effects and lots of drugs to treat those side effects.  She has been experiencing fever, chills, nausea, and tiredness.

Two wonderful things happened today.  Her nurse, Marah, brought her twelve fake orange flowers that are beautiful.  She is from Dominique.  Her husband works in the medical examiner’s office in forensics.  Then Bob and Camille Beville from Hereford came by for a visit.  It was really great to see them.  Bob is here at MDA for his checkup and we wish him well tomorrow.

Everybody tune in tomorrow for TRANSPLANT DAY!!  We will be posting some pictures.

P.S. from Wade

Please no comments on my dictation skills!!lol

    Holly,
    Thank you so much for the beautiful card you sent. You are fighting so courageously, and i have been nothing short of inspired reading about your journey. I think of you often, and will continue to keep you close in my prayers. My heart is brimming with HOPE for you, and though the next weeks will be challenging, keep believing. The best is yet to come! I look forward to seeing you when you get back, and until then…. May God send His angels to watch over you, your sweet family, your medical team and that blessed donor!

Good to hear from you, i look every day to see if you have blogged yet with any more news, AND there was WaDE, I went over those 2 parag. with a fine tooth comb and could not fine a darn thing wrong.

Wade you did a great job, keep us informed. love ya”ll

    Oh my dear Holly!

    I bet by now you have received “new life.” Praise God the waiting is over for you. You know the anticipation of any “new birth” is always so hard. Now you will begin to recover and enjoy every “new” day you have been given. I am sure your family and friends will never understand what you have endured to come this far. Most of us do know the importance of the power of prayer and hope you feeling the blessed touch of Jesus today.

    Wade, you have been right by her side most of the time, loving and caring for her. For that, I am so grateful. May you and Holly enjoy many happy “new” years together. You are now putting into practice the “through sickness and in health.”

    God bless you both today!
