Angels

IMG_1273I always feel like I have angels from God watching over me and my family.  It’s a warm, comforting feeling and calms my nerves when I would otherwise feel anxious.  Libby believes that our brother Bill comes to her in the form of a bird or more specifically a Cardinal – or maybe even a candle.  We have a set of three flameless candles in our room at the hospital that our beautiful sister Lisa bought for Libby.  About two weeks ago, I turned all of them off, but one of them keeps popping back on by itself right when we need it.

Today is the perfect example of that.  These are the most challenging days during what the doctors call the basement period (we call it the Wine Cellar), and Libby is struggling with fainting spells and nausea.   This morning she had a little fainting spell when she got out of the bed.  Luckily, we got her back into her bed with no consequences, and she fell back asleep. As I watched her sleeping, I looked over and our Angel candle had popped on.  It made me feel like everything was going to be ok.  Pretty much on a daily basis, it will pop on, flicker for a bit until we are sure we are surrounded with love, and then quietly turn itself off. It’s probably just a short but we are going with straight up Angel!

We have angels we can’t see and angels we can see, including our amazing parents who are always here by Libby’s side lifting her up and making sure she is happy and remembers how much she is loved.  Metty and Doc have been right here during this challenging ordeal and although they have been through so much as parents, they never lose their positive outlook and resilient attitude.   They lead by example and are the reason that no matter what goes on in life, our family has always been really close, supportive and handles adversity with humor and determination.  We are so very thankful for them!! And for all of you out there praying and sending positive vibes!!

Every Cell Is Well! Libby is on track with the waiting game.  It might be another week before engraftment starts so keep sending those prayers.  Lots of Love!!
