Post-Treatment

Thank you so much for the prayers many of you have been uplifting before our Father on our behalf. We are so thankful for that. May God grow our faith and encourage us, even as He is doing, by your support & prayers. God is kind. So thank you all very much!

We had a very smooth trip, and returned back home late Saturday night. I survived the plane flights without too much undue stress (as long as I kept my eyes closed, bounced my knees around, didn’t budge beyond that, and squeezed all the blood out of Steven’s hand!), although the paperback book I was reading (the first book in the 100 Cupboards series) is a bit wrinkly from being sweat-dampened. 😉

My reaction (to the visible eye, as well as what I feel) to the treatment is as it ought to be — so we are thankful for that. A few weeks after I get the second treatment, we will do a blood test to see if my immunological system has reacted as it should. Please, if you think of it, do continue to pray with us that two rounds of this treatment would be effective, make a substantial difference in my immunological system, and prepare my body for carrying/nurturing babies some day in the future.

I’ll leave you with a picture of part of the procedure — the last step; where I was gritting my teeth, hissing through them, and trying hard not to cry or wiggle while I got eight burning injections in my forearms.

  1. Melissa, I have been and will continue to pray for you, Steven, and your treatments. May the Lord guide and direct you as you seek to have more children. May the Lord also comfort you in your loss of so many precious little ones who are with Him. Thank you too for your loving comment on my blog. Know that I weep with you as well.

  2. Oh you poor dear, that picture brought tears to my eyes and made me cringe. I hate needles. Or rather I fear them.
    I can imagine the plane trip was just added stress too.
    *hugs*
    Continuing to pray for you and that the treatments would be VERY effective!
    Love you!

  3. Dear Melissa,
    Thank you for the update; we are glad to know that the plane rides went ok and will keep you in prayer concerning the procedures (O Father, hear our cries and may they work!) and ouch, that sounds SO painful esp. seeing the pic and all.
