Chemo - Did and Done


The "did and done" saying is Maddie's. I have no idea where it came from but if you ask her if she completed a task this will be her answer.

I asked for your prayers and by the wonderful personal responses I received as well as the responses in the comments section of the blog I know that there were many praying for me. Well, your prayers worked. My appetite has come back. Of course thanks to the steroids I had yesterday with the chemo my appetite is back in full force now. And Sunday my fever finally broke. When I went in yesterday, I had been almost 24 hours with no fever so chemo was on. Again, my bloodwork was perfect. Perfect! That is really surprising considering how many uninterrupted treatments I've had and the fact that I was so sick last week.

I have been using Juice Plus as well as eating correctly. That coupled with many strong prayers from you all. I cannot thank you enough for your diligence in prayer.

This morning has gone okay. My sinuses still feel as though they might explode but its just that time of year anyway. The nausea has continued as in previous treatments. As long as I keep something on my stomach I only have small waves of nausea which is easily manageable.

I want to tell you all about the children of a friend of mine. Her children have been praying for me constantly. They have been so faithful and inquire regularly of their mom as to how exactly I'm doing. They've been praying for all of my specific needs and I so want to thank them. So again, thank you Bethel's children - all of you mean so much to me.

Cindy,
having going through cancer myself, I "know" what you mean and what you are dealing with. I too took Juice Plus during chemo. I believe it's the only reason I didn't have any low blood counts during my treatments. Mine was breast cancer. I will be mindful to keep you in my prayers. Hang in there...it won't be this way always"

Blessings to you and your family
