I’ll let my bride share the latest twist in the road:
Dear Family and Friends,
The oncologist called us yesterday morning to say he thought Dan was a good candidate for a bone marrow transplant. He referred us to a treatment center in Seattle which is the premier hospital for bone marrow transplants in the world. We have a consult with a dr. there next Fri., Aug. 2. We also got a call yesterday from the man who is working on getting Dan the new drug, and he said he thought the application process would be complete in the next 2-3 days. So we might have the medicine by next week.
I have been reminded again this week and comforted over and over by the verse in Ps. 139 which the Lord so clearly brought to my mind when we heard the news of Jeremiah’s death: “All the days ORDAINED for me were written in Your book when as yet there was none of them.” No disease or “weapon formed against us” can thwart the will and purposes of God!
We are grateful beyond words for all the prayers, all the love poured out upon us through all of you and the extended Body of Christ. What an incredibly good and far-reaching God has set in motion through the Gospel of Christ to create an eternal Family! My heart echoes Paul’s words: “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!”
Love to you all,
