First I want to thank my very good friend, Nicole who pitched in to write for me last night. She has agreed to pitch hit for me on those days when I just can’t write. Last night was the first. As she mentioned I had a very bad evening after my cocktail hour(s). It was a VERY long day and between exhaustion and drugs I had a bad evening. My mom and Pam saved the day and took very good care of me. There are lots of meds to take in a timely manner and it’s very hard to think clearly when you’re the patient. I was able to get a great night’s sleep and felt the best rest I’ve had in about 2 weeks.
I had a very good day, it first started with a shot in the arm that I have to have following each treatment. That wasn’t so great but it was very short lived. Then the girls rallied and we all went to get haircuts. We all got super cute short cuts. It was sweet to watch each of them support me as I make adjustments to kick cancer in the butt. The doctors have recommended that the hair loss is easier with a short hairstyle. They predict I will begin to lose my hair in about 3 weeks. Not what I’m looking forward to but it is what it is. I’ll get a couple cute wigs and have variety. Just think girls, all those mornings you’re standing in front of the mirror fussing with your hair, I just have to put mine on and walk out the door. It’ll save me a lot of time. More sleep and take less time to get ready in the mornings. That’s what I’m talking about.
There will be rough days and I have just seen a glimpse but I know that God is carrying me on the days I can’t hold myself up and He holds my hand on the days that I can walk on my own. He never leaves me.
I must admit that I missed writing to all of you yesterday, I felt saddened that I was not able and have thought of you many times today with an anxious heart to get back to you tonight. I love you all and am so inspired and encouraged by your comments. I read them continuously throughout the day and smile. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
‘I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, wether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.’ –Philippians 4:23
My prayer – ‘ Lord, whatever my lot I will praise you.’
