Well, I started my blog on Thursday morning while reclining in the chemotherapy chair with three bags of chemical running through my veins. Things are going good. Talking with ladies that have difference cancers. Believe it or not they have a story to tell. Some are handling it differently than others. On the first day, everyone gave bits of advice that were so helpful. It was about ten of us today. I was hoping to be finished at about noon but I haveÂ to wait for more test results. So, I keep telling myself to be patient so that the nurses can do their jobs. Everyone is so professional and nice here, they’re a great bunch of nurses. Lots of laughter and fun.
I was very proud of myself this morning, when a lady came in not knowing what to expect on her first visit for treatment. She started crying, I think she was afraid of the unknown. She missed her life the way it used to before cancer. IÂ told her to put the fears in the Lords hands so that he can help her carry this burden. She cannot do it alone, without Him. She want to have a big party with lots of her friends. She also invited us along which was very good of her.
Another lady just came in. She is teaching the nurses to speak french.Â I am trying to eavesdrop. 🙂 That is what makes things easy. So many different subjects going on, which keeps ones mind off the chemotherapy. So far the chemotherapy is going well. (I am so hungry.) I pray I will be able to tolerate a good meal.
So, lets get back to the treatment. Listening to the ladies from last week and today. I will raise my hands in honor of the Lord. He feels our struggles. He is right in the room holding our hand. Thank You Dear Lord.
Now I am listening to BeBe Winans (Grace.) The song is about Gods grace. We can do nothing without Gods Grace.
Just finished treatment, the lady I was talking to is sleeping now. She was having a hard day. I pray she gets through this ok. I will keep her in my prayers. We have to put our strength in the Lord. He will bring us through this.Â We should not worry, although being human we have our doubts.
It’s been two days since treatment. We just finished eating dinner, a friend from the church cooked. It was very good. I am still a little tired, but no complaints. The nurse said by the next couple of treatments I might see some lost of hair but that is not a concern of mine. Now don’t get me wrong. I like my hair just like most women but right now I am not going to worry about it. I will not sit in judgment against those who fear losing their hair.
Let’s change the subject from hair. 🙂 Let’s take it somewhere else. I really miss going to church Sunday. The Doctors want me to stay away, as much as possible, from crowds or groups of people because of my immune system. I will heed their words. God helps thoseÂ who help themselves. I just finished talking to one of my nieces, she checking in to see how I am doing after the chemotherapy. It was nice of her.
Well I better close down and rest my mind. The scripture for today isÂ (Psalm 119:03) How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
