Trust in the Lord with all thine heart

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding," Proverbs 3:5

In the beginning of my husband's cancer journey we were advised to live one day at a time. We were wanting all the treatment to be over, the cancer to be gone, and Charlie back to work in a few weeks or months time. Soon we learned this would not be the case at all. The Lord had a different plan for our lives.

At this time, Charlie was supposed to be done with the stem cell transplant and home recovering. Well, the transplant has been cancelled twice now because of a lung infection that the doctors are almost certain is pneumonia. To say the least, we are disappointed. The first time that the transplant was cancelled it was okay; afterall, Charlie could attend our daughters' graduations. How surprized we were to find out that a new area of infection has developed in the same lung. We know God knows why he is allowing this to happen and we may soon know why. For now we just have to trust him with all our hearts.
