Big bodies, little bodies

Talitha enjoyed her bath time tonight. I think the warm water relaxes her and helps with some of the aches she feels as the new bone marrow fills in more and more.

As mentioned yesterday, we've been on the lookout for signs of low platelets. Little bloodspots started appearing on her skin in several places today so I'm sure she's very low on her platelet counts right now.

I'm sure they will give her platelets tomorrow when she goes in to the hospital for her kidney tests.

We hope and pray her organs and ears will continue to hold up under the stress.

Heart, liver, kidneys, ears...I pray for each one by name and am grateful beyond words for God's most miraculous creation--the human body.

I think I took my body for granted while in my younger years. When you hit 40, you learn real fast what areas in the body may have been neglected.

I don't take my body for granted any more. And I don't take little bodies for granted now either.


  1. Dear, sweet baby. How we pray for her. How we love her. How we love her family. Hope you enjoy your time with her home. I'm sure it passes too quickly.

  2. Thank you, Cheryl. Thank you for your prayers and love and support.
