Pray for Susana – Stem cells transplant today.

Susana will be getting her stem cell transplant today. Please keep her in your prayers during this time and for the next few days. The cells that she will be receiving are her own so we expect her body to respond to them with no problems, but the doctors still want to keep a close eye on her.  This is a very critical procedure and we covet your fervent prayers.  She just finished an intensive round of chemo which basically has destroyed all of her white blood cells completely.  The stem cell transplant is being done to re-infuse her healthy stem cells since all of her cells have been destroyed.  She has been extremely weak and has been vomiting throughout the day since she began her chemo.  These are completely normal and expected side effects from the chemo, but nonetheless it is hard to see her like this.  Thankfully, she has been sleeping throughout most of the day since her body is so depleted of all its energy.

Please pray specifically that her white blood cell count will come back quickly.  Please pray that this will happen so that she doesn’t develop mouth sores which can also reach her gastro-intestinal lining.  This causes her so much pain that they will hook her up to a morphine pump to help medicate the pain.  The mouth sores and gastro-intestinal sores will start to go away when her body starts to produce white blood cells again, so that is why we are praying that the Lord supernaturally develops white blood cells in her quickly.  God is able and we pray that He shows forth His power!

Pray specifically for her organs to be protected:  lungs, liver, kidneys, and heart. Also pray that her blood pressure remains steady and at a normal level.

We thank you so much for your love and support. We love you guys. 🙂  — Maria and Cody

Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge—

no plague come near your tent. –Psalm 91:9-10

    Jesus draw me ever nearer
    As I labour through the storm.
    You have called me to this passage,
    and I’ll follow, though I’m worn.

    May this journey bring a blessing,
    May I rise on wings of faith;
    And at the end of my heart’s testing,
    With Your likeness let me wake.

    Jesus guide me through the tempest;
    Keep my spirit staid and sure.
    When the midnight meets the morning,
    Let me love You even more.

    Let the treasures of the trial
    Form within me as I go –
    And at the end of this long passage,
    Let me leave them at Your throne
