First Peter 4:12 says ....."I beg you not to be unduly alarmed at the fiery ordeals which come to test your faith." Day one of IL-2 & the Ch. 14.18 (Chimeric Antibody) has proven to be another fiery ordeal which has come test our faith. Yet, I am thankful that he has once again proven to supply the strength we need....just in time.
Today has been a rough day for Halie but God has supplied strength in abundance for His precious child. The IL-2 started promptly at 9 a.m. It was a good morning. She played, ate donuts, got to go to the playroom....it was fun. Big love brought a fun basket full of Valentine's Day treats. It seemed like everywhere we turned someone was giving fun bags and treats. Then at 11:00 we started the CH.14.18 it usually takes about three hours for the full effects of the anibody to kick in. Around 1:45 we took blood pressures and they were alarmingly low. Halie was sleeping but we were having trouble rousing her so Dr.'s were called in and the protocol was stopped. So the afternoon has been spent trying work out a plan. Her I's and O's are positive 800 but the decision to give her Lasik has not been made due to blood pressure issues. We are trusting bodly in God's promises knowing that all things are in His mighty hands and will be accomplished for her good and ours.
