Packing for the hospital (:

Hi Friends (:
Well, we are starting treatment TOMORROW! It is finally here. I just realized today while visiting a friend that Evie is 11 weeks already... meaning we have been waiting for treatment to start for almost 2 months. I am ready, and nervous. We need prayers that she won't have an allergic reaction to the medication, and that her body tolerates and responds well. Evie is skipping the IV dose of the medication because of the medicine she is on for her seizures, which I am happy about. She will just get a shot, and be monitored.
We will be staying at the hospital overnight, and will be coming home Tuesday. We go back Wednesday and Friday for her 2nd and 3rd shots, and stay a few hours each time for monitoring. Then it's shots 3 times a week for the next 6 months.
I was telling friends recently that I haven't spent a lot of time going back and reading through old posts on this blog... which I should. I decided to check out "September" so I could re-post the verses we had in our hospital room:
Isaiah 40:28-31
28 Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure
the depths of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord
will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
Joshua 1:99
This is my command—
be strong and courageous!
Do not be afraid or discouraged.
For the Lord your God is with you
wherever you go.
Lamentations 3:22 - 23.
Because of the Lord's great love
we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness.
Revelation 3:20
Here I am!
I stand at the door and knock.
If anyone hears My voice
and opens the door,
I will come in and eat with him,
and he with Me.
wow. compared to what we were facing September 17, 2009 tomorrow is a gift from Heaven. Thank you Lord.
I don't think I'll have a computer at the hospital - I will post when I get back.
Love you friends (:


  1. Wishing you the best tomorrow! Sonya is also receiving her treatment tomorrow and then on Tuesday and Wednesday! Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers! Hugs!

  2. Our prayers are with Evie and your entire family. May you trust in God's plan for her future (and hope!) Peace to you all. Know that the Lord is hearing the prayers of many of his children, lifting you all up to the Great Physician.
    In His Peace,
