Wonder of Wonder Miracle of Miracle!!

Last night I had this horrible pain in my chest and ribs and back and pelvis and I just couldn't get any relief from the pain, so I had to call the after hours BMT clinic and they advised me what to do to control some of the pain. When I asked them what would be causing me so much pain, they said sometimes the nulasta shot which they give you to help boost the immune system will cause that pain. I went to the clinic this morning to do my labs and I told the girls if the pain I had last night was any indication of the "boost" my immuine system got I would probably be in the 10,000 mark on my white cells! The day before my white blood cell count was 0.63, which showed signs of improving, but I wasn't engraft. Well today when the labs came back, my white cell count was 8.31. Crazy! I am now engrafted, and will see the Dr. tomorrow and hopefully get the ok to return back home. My throat is feeling much better and I am so happy I didn't have to stay in the hospital! In my mind this good news is nothing short of a miracle because of the many many prayers that have been given in behalf of our family. We love you all. As a family we continue to pray for all of you in your individual circumstances and trials.

Carolyn, praying you a good week - great week - and relief from pain. When I hurt badly physically, mentally or spiritually I am always humbled by the Savior's pain for us. It doesn't change it at that moment but I have a deeper appreciation for Him because of it. Sometimes I wonder why people have to suffer. I guess that is why. Really hoping you have a nice day Friday.

I was driving home from work yesterday and saw the big yellow sign at your house.
WELCOME HOME!
Keep up your positive attitude. I know the Lord watches over you. Hope to see you around soon.
