What to Say?

I wanted to come to the computer earlier today yet, Dave forced me to take a nap for good reason. He is off work today due to the holiday. I am extremely grateful that he is home due to fatigue. This morning I felt fine after emailing a couple of friends then BANG... not so good I totally crashed. As the noon hour approached I was in no mood to cook or eat. For breakfast all I ate was a slice of poppyseed almond bread so I should have been hungry. Dave and I took turns making the smoothie, breakfast potatoes & eggs for lunch. That is one meal we love eating anytime during the day. He also made me eat a small plate. O what would I do without him? After eating I took a much needed nap while Stuart took his.

I was going to tell you this morning how the chemo cycle went this time around for it was tolerable till this morning. Some items included a mild headache Saturday morning where 500 mg. of tylenol just took the edge off. Also the constipation was not a problem till the last days. All in all chemo was tolerable for this cycle... except for todays fatigue. I cannot complain.

The LORD is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid? . . . Though an army beseige me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
Psalm 27 1, 3

I guess taking the boys to the zoo yesterday did me in. I felt fine thankfully just moved slower than normal. I could tell a difference from previous visits. I haven't been to the zoo in about a year. The boys had fun especially Stuart. I am having problems saving my pics to the computer lately so sorry for you and me alike.

Please pray for Cole as his long time fish, Ron Jon died yesterday in a aquarium filled with a bar soap. It was so cloudy I couldn't see a thing while taking the water out. Cole is devastated. This was his first pet. A curious Stuart was involved is all I can say. ...We plan on having a burial for the fish later. My heart hurts for Cole. Long story here.

Welcome to life in the Snodgrass home

Oh...yeah...praying for Cole, too. Poor Ron Jon! Prayerfully thankful for husbands with "extra eyes" to see your needs. Moms have eyes in the back of their heads to watch unruly kids...husbands have eyes in the NORMAL position and extra sensors located...hmm...not sure WHERE...but they work well to scout out needs like naps and plates of food and the like for their weary wives. Sending thoughts of encouragement over the cyberwaves to your door....MMMMMM....GRRRRRRR...(various and assundry sounds of great effort)...did you get them? Laura Joback

Kate-Your sweet heart is evident in the reaction to Cole's fish dying- I am praying for your strength and patience this summer- for you to let tasks go if needed, and to rest, not only in the Lord, but to relax and rest :) A trip to the zoo would exhaust me too! Although mine could be an age thing! Love from Italia- Jen P
