I’ve got to say – yall have loved me through this very well, so far!!
I am halfway finished with the chemo! :woohoo: Not sure if I ever elaborated on what all my treatment plan included because it literally makes me physically sick if I think (or try to write) about it too much. Amazing that the treatment has such a strong physiological element to accompany the physical part of it.
At any rate, my first four treatments were A & C – Adriamycin and Cytoxan … last Friday the oncologist shared that on a scale of 1-10, both of those drugs ranked at 10 on the nausea-causing scale. I believe it! These medicines have been no joke!!!
My next four treatments will be Taxol -it is said to only rank as a 1 on the nausea scale, but carries its own set of side effects, often mirroring flu-like symptoms in patients and causing tingling/burning in the extremities. I could do without any of those symptoms if you feel led to pray that way. 😉
I just wanted to pop in and say hello tonight. It seems like day five has kind of consistently been the day that I can start easing back into a daily routine following a treatment. Hopefully it won’t take me five more days to get completely back on track!
I’ve been able to get down some more fluids this treatment, and I think that helps tremendously. Well, that, plus your continued prayers! I noticed today that some people have signed up to fast and pray for me on the Care Calendar that I don’t even really know…THANK YOU! That means so much to me.
I continually feel I am under attack by Satan, whether it be personally, or against my family, my friends or my children…Satan is constantly on the prowl.
1 Peter 5:8
8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Who else wore out your Witness cd from Camp Caswell (1994-95 (?)) with this song on it?!
Remember the next line…? RESIST HIM! STAND FAST IN YOUR FAITH. RESIST HIM!
I’m just trying to stand fast in my faith right now. I feel frustrated sometimes at things I can’t control, but trusting that God has it all under control!! He cares for me! I’m a Child of the King!
I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus, Since I found in Him a friend so kind and true, I would tell you how He changed my life completely, He did something that no other friend could do
No one ever cared for me like Jesus, There’s no other friend so kind as He, No one else could take the sin and darkness from me, Oh how much He cares for me
Every day He comes to me with new assurance, More and more I understand His words of love, But I’ll never know just why He came to save me, Until someday I see His blessed face above -anon
