Sunday night. Tomorrow morning bright and early, Rob and I will head back to the NYU Clinical Cancer Center, with the plan of chemo starting again. However, the first order of business will be to check his platelet count. It was too low for chemo to start last week, but not so low that he needed a platelet transfusion. So, all that could be done was to wait. Tomorrow morning we’ll find out if he’s waited long enough. It’s so very important to be content in relying on God’s plan, even though it is unknown to us from one day to the next. Complete reliance on God: when it’s our only path, it becomes very clear that it’s the best path.
We’re presently watching the TX Rangers and the NY Yankees. Tie game, the bottom of the 8th. Ughhh, the Yankees just took the lead, 6 to 5. Now the bases are loaded, two outs, and we’ll see what happens…. Okay, now it’s the top of the 9th, the Yankees still in the lead, 6 to 5.
This morning we all made our way over to Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, heard an excellent sermon by Scott Black Johnston, and enjoyed singing “When I Survey The Wondrous Cross.” Such blessings! Then, we went out to brunch at a great spot: JoJo’s, on E. 64th — simply delicious! We’re trying to send Rob off to chemo in style.
Oh. The Rangers just lost. So sad.
More to come on Rob’s progress…..
Lamentations 3:22-24 The LORD’s kindness never fails! If he had not been merciful, we would have been destroyed. The LORD can always be trusted to show mercy each morning. Deep in my heart I say, ”The LORD is all I need; I can depend on him!”
