Worse Before Better

We thought Gary would feel worse with the transfusions before getting better. We are at the feeling worse part. Although Gary continues to tell everyone that asks that he feels good, his body is very busy fighting all of these infections. His positive upbeat attitude has not changed. He was cheering himself with clapping and thumbs up during doctor rounds yesterday. I think they could use some lessons in the affects of a positive attitude.
He is ready for another batch of angry neutrophils tonight.
Pray for Gary to remain calm and for lots of peace.
"For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who ARMS ME WITH STRENGTH and makes my way perfect." Psalm 18:31-32

Gary and Tammy,
I am one of the Red Cross nurses and have been following the blog regularly. I am making this comment on behalf of myself and not on behalf of the Red Cross. Jeremiah 29:11 has been on my mind lately "(New International Version)
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." This is a promise that we all can claim. Your whole family has been in my prayers since we started collecting for Gary. The donors have all been great and reflect the great attitude that you both have.
