Small Joys in Life

Tyler and I each had a 3 hour nap this afternoon and, upon waking, I am so very thankful for these small joys in life. We are both the better for the rest and looking forward to another day of rest tomorrow.

We never heard anything about Tyler's blood test this morning, so I guess no news is good news. We expect he might need a transfusion of red blood cells tomorrow, as he got a platelets bag after the transplant and should have another day of freedom with the platelets bump he got.

Thank you all SO MUCH for the encouragement and celebration and prayer over the last two days. It's a blessing to us to know how many loved ones are sharing in this journey with us and wishing the best for Tyler. He's an amazing man and I am so excited for this first step on a journey back to health.

We are reading Lance Armstrong's second book, Every Second Counts. In it, Lance says "What surviving cancer teaches you is the magnitude of your dependence on others.... you're reliant on friends, family, and complete strangers..." Tyler and I feel this deeply, as all of you have become such an important part of our cancer fighting team.

Thank you thank you thank you!!
