It has been a busy for Ary Joy and the Rodriguez family.
Ary Joy had an echo-cardiogram done on Monday to check her heart’s performance. They had to check because one of the chemo medication causes some sort of distress to the heart but we know that Ary’s heart is strong and healthy. She also had blood work on Tuesday which showed her hemoglobin and platelets on the borderline side and for us to keep an eye on her if she got weak or lost her appetite…well she has been so energetic and eating so much…LOL! She also had an MRI done on Friday to check if the tumor has shrunk and the chemo is working. I know that prayers are being sent to heaven on a daily basis concerning Ary’s healing and God is listening and answering. The word of God declare that no weapon formed against us shall prosper…I stand on this concerning Ary Joy.
In the midst of all of her medical appointments, we received a call from the hospital that one of the local news channels wanted to do a story on the reason why we had opened a non-profit organization called “Hope in Joy”. Ary Joy was so excited to come out on television…this organization was created because of our journey of Ary Joy battling cancer. We want to bless children that are faced with the same challenge and bring joy as they endure this journey. God has been amazing…this new chapter in our lives will be one of blessing others! It is our honor to bless God through the gift of giving because we are so grateful for what he is doing in Ary Joy’s life
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits…Psalm 103: 1-2
