Inch by Inch

I started a crocheting project - an afghan - from a book called Mile-a-Minute Afghans. The subtitle is Inch by inch, anything's a cinch. That is kind of symbolic of our life now, minute by minute. How many minutes are there in a day? Quite a few! I don't know about the cinch, but it sure makes it easier if you don't think too much.
Dr. O' Reilly, the head Transplant doctor - we have known him since she was a baby - has Renee's treatment plan all figured out, with back up plans and everything. He just came by to see Renee and he is very confident that she will go into remission again like last time. In the mean time , getting chemo sucks and I wish I could take her place. She got the first 2 bags of chemo in the day hospital and had to be admitted for the last 2 since the clinic is not open on Saturday. If all goes well, she will be discharged later today after the chemo is done.
I sure hope that we will be able to get the apartment that we looked at yesterday - 2 bedrooms and 2 baths - right next to the hospital. It is just a question of getting the finances arranged on time. Sure would be an answer to prayer, if we could get in there. Better than we could have even imagined. It is only available on the 12th, but Renee agreed that we would gladly wait till then if we could just get that one.
The Daily Bread devotional for today was very good again. "We are not equipped to handle all the problems we face, but God is. That's why He told us to give them all to Him - to 'cast your burden on the Lord'." "We can walk through the darkest trials when we walk with God in the light." We have to keep reminding ourselves, that God is bigger than all our problems, bigger than all our fears.
