Today's bloodwork was within normal limits (WNL's). I will continue with the 350mg. of Temodar (chemo) tomorrow night into Tuesday.

Thanks for checking in...

Hello All,
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 was listening to a song by Matthew West tonight. A line from the song mentions...
"If you disappear would you be missed?" I was troubled with that quote. Are you or I intentional in our relationships?

Just a thought to ponder...

God's Love for you

Today I am thinking about my last two(less than 2) years of cancer experience...

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.

Celebrating the big 10!

Yes, today is Carter's tenth birthday. It is hard to imagine that he was born ten years ago. Last night we had a family dinner due to him having a ball game tonight. He will celebrate with his friends on Monday, June 9. This morning he had his birthday pancakes (a family tradition) on the "You are special" plate. Enjoy the pictures.

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.

Emma Grace

Please take the time to pray for my friend in Florida, Heather and her husband, Mark. Their youngest daughter, Emma Grace is needing medical help with her heart. For more information check out Be sure to read over her website especially the side bars. It is very informative. My words are lacking today for what I really want to say.

As always thanks for checking in.
