Battle has been won.

Lord, You are good and your mercy endureth forever --- You are good and your love endures forever---- 

Is the song of my heart this morning. This chorus has been streaming throughout my veins as I awaken from another brief nap in the ICU at Joel's bedside. 

So thankful that my husband is alive, talking, moving, breathing and even eating.

Praising God that we get to fight this together, as we are one. 

This is not a fight against anyone-- only this stupid tumor.

But the reality is its a battle not any other friend or ANY family member can fight directly-- Even our parents. They have the role of supporting us in battle--Sharing the load---  but this is ours!

 We choose daily to give it to God-- who is our strength.  We fully know that ultimately this battle has been won. We will win the day. But we still have to fight! We know who has gone before us.  And we are so thankful to our friends and family who are behind-- Got our backs!!!

Thank you to wonderful friends and family who understand this. Thank you for supporting us, and asking what we need and want, not just assuming. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You make this road easier.
