"Step One Of The Clinical Trial"

I received the phone call today that I passed my first test of getting approved for the clinical trial and the research coordinator wanted to meet with me to sign appropriate paper work to start the next step.  Tony, Jenna and I went in to meet with the coordinator and she did a great job of explaining and answering all of our questions.  I will have several test ran in the next few weeks to make sure everything matches up to begin the trial.  I found out that Steve & Susan Goss' sister-in-law is already part of the same clinical trial.  We are sisters in Christ and now we will be sisters in a clinical trial.  Sheila Goss is about 2 months ahead of me in the study. 

"Clinical Trial Sisters" 

I will no longer be going in for chemo treatments.  I will take one pill a day and have lab work done every two weeks.  There are many side effects that can occur but that can come with any drug you take.  I am praying God will give me continued grace and strength to rest in Him and know that He is working all things out for my good and His glory.  We are not promised tomorrow, so I want my today to be used to honor Him and be thankful that He gave me another day to live and breath life. 

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