Last week was VBS week. What a week! Overseeing crafts for three of the days was a hoot. I felt horrible on Monday and Tuesday with what I like to call the chemo cold. I never have had so many colds as I have had in a years time. I think I am at six since February already! Aghhhhhh. Welcome to a compromised immune system.
I have been struggling with keeping up with house duties(laundry, dishes, etc). It is the multi tasking that is difficult. Dave encourages me to rest during the day. I have more energy in the morning compared to afternoons. If I do not rest I will feel it in the late evening with a ache behind my eyes. It happened last night. I had a great time attending a friends bridal shower minus resting during the day(no time). I also taught the pre K Sunday school class at church in the morning which requires energy that I so want to expend for the kingdom. I love being with the kids. God is good.
This week I have my oncologist appointment on Thursday at 11:15 am. I will also have my bloodwork done prior to the appointment as well. We will have the results at the appointment. I am trying to condense my driving due to gas prices. The less amount spent on the road the better. Chemo (350 mg. Temodar) is slated for Friday evening through Tuesday.
Please pray for Dave and I in regards to contacting others hurting with this disease. We have numerous opportunities unfortunately (for their sake). This is one club that should NOT have lots of members.

I remember the long drives of quiet Lord time in the van driving to radiation at Siteman Cancer Center (Washington University). It was a special time of conversation between the God of the universe and ME. Me of all people.
I am considering the following today...What kind of God do we have that would love me so tenderly? And that He would give me the ability to have some sort of relationship with Him? Our God is awesome! Don't you think?
Hope you see His love for you today.

As for the chemo update. Cole likes to call it CHEE mo. I was exhausted. On Sunday morning at church I informed Dave that it felt like I would pass out. That was two nights worth of chemo. Tuesday night was my official last night of taking the pills for the five day round. Some constipation occured that was somewhat remedied. I cannot complain for the Temodar wasn't as horrible this time. Thank you for praying. It was appreciated and noticable.
Off to the pool this morning for some birthday splashes.
