When you can't STAND on your own....

This was my Facebook post this afternoon-

Family & Friends- Ty's count are at 100 today. THAT is such a blessing. The doctors are calling him the poster child. Ty's transplant is going better than they had anticipated. I have learned to VALUE every moment and NEVER give-up and NEVER give in. I went to the Desert book store today to buy items for our two cute missionary kids- Sister-McKay Pier and Elder Seth Collins. My heart was beating so fast, as I thought of each of them. We miss them so much and I know that God is watching over them as they serve. I pray daily (countless times) for their safety as well as that for the other missionaries.

I walked to the aisle of photos of Jesus Christ and I stood there and wept. I felt God's spirit rush through my entire body. I felt LOVE overcome my body and the feeling that God is mindful of me and my prayers of my heart. God has not left Tyler or I or our family for one second in this journey. God loves each of us so much and knows our own personal struggles. I felt I had to share this special comfort and witness. I have never doubted for one second that God is not carrying me and each of us when we feel we can't walk or stand on our own. I love you so much Tyler Lewis Collins- you are my BEST FRIEND!!!!!!!


Ty has been in the hospital for right at 3 weeks.
He could come home a lot sooner if the counts stay high and he responds so well. This makes me so happy.

This means I will be cleaning my house like a crazy
mad woman starting today. I can't risk him
coming home and getting sick. I know this makes me emotional in a good way. I keep telling God- THANK YOU THANK YOU    THANK YOU...


I am so thankful for EACH day... EACH moment that we have together. I know we have a long journey of recovery ahead and it will not be easy. When Ty comes home he will need help 24/7. I am worried on how this going to be possible. I know it will be day by day. At 100 days, they will test him to see if the cancer is in remission. For now... each day, I tell myself- MAKE each DAY the BEST!!!!!

AMAZING NEWS! GOD IS INDEED GOOD ALL THE TIME! HE ANSWERS THE PRAYERS OF THOSE THAT CALL ON HIM AND TALK TO HIM THROUGH PRAYER! I pray that your husband continues to improve so that he can come home and be with his family. He is indeed a fighter...I can't even IMAGINE all the emotions you and your children are going through in this difficult time...it takes A LOT of resilience to endure and remain positive and not completely break down. ((BIG HUGS)) to you and yours!

Your daughter looks JUST LIKE You! Same striking eyes and smile!
