One Year Later

This time last year Kaedyn was almost one month post bone marrow transplant. This Easter holiday we feel thankful and blessed as we look at him and see the results of people everywhere who pleaded and prayed for a donor to come through, and prayed for our sweet boy to have enough strength to survive the entire process. We won’t ever forget how the staff at Shands talked and prepared us for everything he had to go through. They were right there helping us deal with every tough moment, but also celebrated with us as good things happened.
I think about our risen Savior and how He carried our family through many days as we didn’t have the strength to do it ourselves. The verse in Isaiah 40:29 clearly defines how we made it through those dark days.
“He gives power to the faint, and to them that have no might He increases strength.”
We can make it when we look to the Son and place our faith and hope in Him!
