"God Is Gracious"

My day began with my son Bryan picking me up and taking me to the hospital for a blood transfusion.  He has not been able to go with me to my chemo appointments and he wanted to go with me today.  We arrived at 7:30 and with check in and pre-meds, the transfusion began around 9:30am.  I have to add a disclaimer into my blog tonight due to the fact that when Bryan is around you are never sure what kind of entertainment will happen.  If any of my friends or family received awkward or random phone calls from a another friend/family member but wasn't sure why they called, you can blame my son.  We had a lot of laughs together hanging out and being entertained by others.  Everything went very smoothly while receiving the transfusion and I really felt good waking up this morning and tonight as well.  We were able to leave the hospital around 3:30 today.   I am so grateful for how well I have been feeling this week and I believe all the fun and laughter we have had together with family this week has been extra healing to my soul and spirit.

Bryan, thanks for a great day of hanging out with me & making me laugh!

Tony, aka GPa, hung out with the twins and Hudson today.  He took Hudson to the "Jump Zone" while the twins hung out with Jenna.  He then picked up the twins and took all 3 grand kids to Braums for ice cream.  We all met up after my treatment and divided and conquered the rest of the afternoon. GPa took Kaitlyn to The Crystal Bridges Museum.  Kaitlyn loves art and was so excited to have time to hang out with GPa and enjoy the art without being rushed.  Kimberly and I went and bought 2 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts to help finish out their visit here (they love Krispy Kreme) then we went and bought the "Les Miserables" movie and came home and watched it.

We had dinner with Bryan and Jenna and broke out the game of Nert's for the last time as a family before the girls have to leave on Sunday.  We agree GPa plays solitaire way too much on a daily basis.  He dominated the game tonight!

Psalms 67:1 "May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us."
I truly believe this verse is what God has done for me and my family this week.  I've needed this week to relax, laugh and enjoy time with family.  We've made great memories and have been blessed to spend so much time together.

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
