China Day 31: First stem cell treatment on Wednesday !! (tomorrow)

I just got off the phone with Heather and Dan and they said that Dan will receive his first stem cell treatment tomorrow! This is exciting news!! So since they are ahead of our time about 14 hours, that means that sometime Tuesday evening US time that Dan will have his first treatment. I would imagine they would start about 9:00 am Beijing time which is 7:00 pm the night before MDT. When I talked to them on the telephone, they said that he would be getting the treatment tomorrow, but then when I got off the phone I realized that they are already living our tomorrow (it is Tuesday am now for them) and so their tomorrow is really Wednesday! What a brain cramp!

Heather is doing great. They met some really nice people at church and Heather made some friends her age (Young Single Adults). They went out to lunch yesterday and then visited a Buddhist temple. It had a statue that was about three stories tall – I guess it is the tallest in the world. Tonight (their Tuesday) she is going to go to institute and then the group might go out to dinner or dancing. So, it sounds like she has some friends to be with while she is there. Also, some of Dan's Nu Skin friends came over and took her shopping and have invited them to their home for dinner. It looks like everyone is being well taken care of in China! :-)

I am at home working hard to get everything taken care of with my job as well as getting organized to go back to China for several weeks. I am sure it will be a busy week – but I am excited to have Dan's treatments officially beginning! Say an extra prayer for Dan the next few days! Thanks all! We so appreciate your support!!!

That is exciting news!! Yay!! Our prayers are with you, Big Brother! Glad Heather made it safely! (Stay away from the markets..or get Aunt Christi something good..haha!)

This is one of my favorite quotes...
NOTHING is impossible!
'Impossible' is just a big WORD thrown around by small men and women who find it easier to live in the world they've been given rather than exploring the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact, it is an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration, IT'S A DARE. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is NOTHING.

So YAY... nothing is impossible!
Can't wait to hear what the next few days bring!

We love you so, so much!!
