European Spa Vacation

I spoke to the head honcho in charge of my European Spa Experience, his name is Dr. Ciurea, and I highly, recommend him. Late on Sunday, January 24th, I will check into my all expense paid :) luxury room, and begin a hydration drip. Monday they will give me small doses of the chemical cocktail to see how my body metabolizes the mixture. Tuesday is a rest day, I'm sure they have a massage, pedicure, and manicure planned for me (Missing you guys at Holden & Co)...
The real fun starts Wednesday the 27th, I get the chemical cocktail full blast until Saturday,the 30th of January. They said it would do wonders for my skin, but I'm not sure they have the same goal in mind, because several of the people who are here at the spa, have a pale yellow look about them. Maybe the pale yellow look is going to be in the year.
There has been some discussion about my hair, so they decided to add a little something and let it fall out and start over, they seem to think that "dirty brown-gray" look will really be the color for me.
Sunday, the 31st, being a day of rest, they have decided to let me rest. They are going to add Monday for good measure. Tuesday, February 2nd, I will take the treatment they are known for, the stem cell transplant, after all the other treatments, it might seem a little anti climatic; it will take roughly 45 minutes. BTW, they have a novel way for weight lost, they are mouth and throat sores, who knew.....
All in all I give this "hotel" 5 stars;

even though you are @ MD Anderson facing what you are facing you make light of it and show so much courage.. reminds me of Paul when he was in prison. And I will continue to be glad. 19 I know that you are praying for me. I also know that the Spirit of Jesus Christ will help me. So no matter what happens, I'm sure I will still be saved.. I love you..you inspire me..md

I was reading Psalm 15 today and I was reminded of you. May you feel His strong hands bringing you comfort throughout these days. Thank you for your example of faith and strong trust in the One who can truly be trusted for all things.

Love you!!!!

I know one thing that needs no "spa treatment" that is your spirit--it is the most beautiful thing about you! Love you today my sweet friend.

I just wanted you to know you have been on mind all week. I have prayed for you and your family and will continue to do so.I want to share a verse with you that God has laid on my heart recently. It may seem a strange one to give you at this point but let me explain. I meet on thursday mornings with a group of prayer warriors. We have felt that The enemy has been attacking our church and particularly families. One of my friends felt God was laying Hebrews 12:12-13 on her heart as a verse we should be praying over our church. AS I was asking him what verse would have me share with you this verse kept coming back to me. "Therefore strengthen your feeble arms and week knees,Make level paths for you feet,so that the lamb may not be disabled but rather healed" DEb I am praying for you body to be strengthened to endure the path you will tread next week , That your path will be level and smooth and that you will be totally healed.
