It’s the beginning of another work week which means another weekend is behind. The weekends have been a great time for me to be able to get together with friends and “live”. They are slowly turning into a time of rest, not by choice but by demand by my body. The reality check is that as I have gone from treatment twice a week to once a week there’s a whammy dose on Fridays. Over the past two weeks I’ve noticed what a toll it takes on my energy level. Initially on Friday evenings, I am wired from all the steroids then Saturday comes the fall. It’s crazy the toll it takes on your system. I am adjusting to resting over the weekends so that I’m able to work through the week. All is good, sometimes you have to make adjustments. Time for a few adjustments. What I appreciate most? All of you who have taken such good care of me. Thank you for the meals and help with doctors appointments. I truly could not ask for more. Thank you.
On a side note, my chemo is now 16 weeks instead of 12. That’s all I know at this point, not anything particular other than this course of drug treatment is 16 weeks not 12.
Today as I was doing my quiet time the Lord took me to a verse that I have not been to since the day before I discovered my tumor. I found great comfort as the note in my bible is a celebratory moment. Today it served as a reminder the Lord continues to carry me through this journey. Today, I rejoice with Him.
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
