Celebrating her 8th birthday
John and Sarah have not received the results of the biopsy of Ellie's hip that was done on Tuesday yet. When they receive the results, then they will know what they're battling and the doctors will be able to plan treatment. The biopsy of the tumor behind Ellie's nose was previously planned for today, but has been cancelled. Tomorrow will be a quiet day before gearing up for the upcoming treatments.
Ellie celebrated her 8th birthday with family and a few friends during the day. She so much enjoys seeing her friends and being able to act like the little girl that she is. Her favorite part of the day, with the possible exception of the gifts, was giving her friends "rides" on her hospital bed. Her laugh was a reminder of easier days.
Please pray for wisdom for the best treatments, for strength for the long haul for John and Sarah, and for Ellie to have the inner strength that she will need to face the fight.
Thanks for your continued prayers. We will praise God in this storm, because He is good, even when things are hard.
