And...We're Back!

We got home from Seattle last night around midnight. There is so much to be said about Ava's visit but I wanted to make one special announcement first. At Ava's allergist appointment, we found that her skin did not react to any of the foods that had previously caused anaphylaxis. For those of you who were with us from the very first hospitalization due to anaphylaxis, you may remember the urgency with which we prayed for a cure. Who could have known that her rare leukemia, the aggressive and persistent disease, the inability to find a bone marrow match, and the resulting cord blood transplant would lead to an answered prayer? Not me, but His ways are higher than mine.
"'My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,' says the Lord. 'And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts...You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands! Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up.These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.'" Isaiah 55:8-9,12-13

Ava's story is not fully written. God continues to reveal Himself and His plans for our lives. Yet, we will worship Him in the now. And we wIll celebrate His goodness today.

We spared no expense at Red Robin because there's no better way to say, "YAHOO!!!" than with a plate of Chicken Stickens and some seasoned fries.
