Just Found Out

Ryan got the call this afternoon that he will be donating bone marrow sometime in November! This is the more complicated of the two procedures, but it's the one we both have the most peace about! Ryan had his physical on Thursday and then a team of doctors met to discuss Ryan's health and which procedure would be best for Ryan with the fewest possible side effects. So bone marrow it is!! This has been a really strange process to be a part of. When Ryan told me I actually felt excited and then teary at the same time! Please keep praying for us as we work through all the details. Things are moving quickly and we also have to be really flexible because Ryan will be donating based on when it's best for the patient, not when it's most convenient for us. Most importantly, please keep praying for the patient! Pray that God will use Ryan's marrow to bring complete healing to her body!

This isn't exactly laying down your life for a friend, but someone will live because of your willingness to give of yourself, which is pretty close. I know Our Lord Jesus will bless you for your great kindness. You are a fine man and I am proud to have you in our family.
