Good news! We’re being discharged from the hospital this AM. Zach did great overnight and seems to be his chipper self. We will visit the opthomology clinic before coming home, but are on our way.
Also, we got back the report about the spinal fluid sample already. That test showed no sign of cancer in the spinal fluid. Praise the Lord! We’ll receive a pathology report about Zach’s removed eye as well as a bone marrow sample. The one year mark from today would mean we’re likely out of the woods with concerns of any cancer.
Thanks for your support and prayers. You have all been a wonderful blessing in these past few days. We’ll keep writing new updates and ruminations as news and thoughts come to us.
Here’s a Psalm my friend Jason shared with us. Psalm 138
I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart;
before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word.
On the day I called, you answered me;
my strength of soul you increased.
All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O LORD,
for they have heard the words of your mouth,
and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD,
for great is the glory of the LORD.
For though the LORD is high, he regards the lowly,
but the haughty he knows from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life;
you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and your right hand delivers me.
The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands.
(Psalm 138 ESV)
