It wasn't chemo that got me. It was the flu bug Semi carrying a trailer full of congestion, coughing, and fatigue.
After more than 2 weeks, I am finally feeling good. Wow what a nasty bug. So weak I couldn't even write. THAT IS BAD!
But I am back!!!
Feeling good today and gathering strength.
Good news - I have lost more weight where I am no longer overweight. Not quite to the 135 they say I am supposed to weigh but under 150 and I haven't seen that in 20 years.
Now I need to exercise. Yikes I am all flab. Need some muscles.
Chemo #3 should happen Monday. Had to skip one because of the bug.
One thing that I am really not happy with, is this bug derailed me spiritually too. I did nothing and God wasn't even on the horizon. I thank the Lord that He didn't forget me. But I learned a lesson, no matter what keep God first.
Also - sad news. While I was languishing with the flu bug, my sweet Father in law went to be with the Lord. He is definitely happier now. I did get to say good bye to him. Bittersweet times. I do miss him, but I am happy to have my house back.
At times it was like grand central station with all his caregivers.
So, with my goal to heal and get healthier, I am now taking over my house again.
First thing - change the room my FIL stayed in. It is now my play room - or will be.
Tearing up the carpet - paint the walls a pretty aqua color - tile the floor. Can't wait to get started.
Remember God is always good!
22 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
