Chemo #4 Doing Well.

Had chemo #4 Monday.  Doing well although it does take some out of me.

But this is the last with the Big Red drug which is apparently a rough one. So hopefully the next 4 will be a little easier.

Big Red is hard on the red blood cells and I have lost some. Makes me tired. So I have been eating steak and that helped a little.

Can't complain about that  : )

So today I will rest and write.

Yes, am working on my book again. YAY  the Lord gave me fresh ideas so am excited for this book again.

Strength.  You really don't know to call out for the Lord's strength until you find yours is missing.

God is good. And He promises He is our strength.

Still learning how to lean on Him. But trusting that HE is good and His promises are true

Have a blessed day.

Learning to walk in Him. Abide in Him. Walking that narrow way.

Jeremiah 30:17 "For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord."

How's it Going?

My Office!

After five days of grunting, groaning, and reorganziing

I actually have an office I like to go into and one I can actually work in.

AND I did this during my weakest days. With a lot of help from my sweet husband. Had to wait for him to move all my heavy things. but it is finally done.

Whew! Wore me out!

Yes, I am weak from the chemo drugs. They apparently have eaten up some of my red blood cells.  SO I am eating steak and spinach and almonds to boost my count.

Also am exercising. Not a lot, but something is better than nothing,

SO I am feeling good but tired going into the weekend and Monday
will have chemo #4.  The last with Big Red drug.

And then will have an evaluation to see what is going on.  Will have a mammogram on the 28th.

The major thing I need to change is to put God First back in my life.
Somehow, I have managed to slide away from that sweet spot.

HE said narrow is the way and how true.  So easy to fall off that path
and find yourself in the brambles of life wondering where God went.

Oh He is still on the abundant life trail but I am not.

SO working on getting myself back up there.
God's presence is so wonderful not sure why I let the world yank me down
but it doesn't seem to be a hard thing to allow to happen.

Thankfully, God's mercy is new every morning and He eagerly awaits my arrival.

Healing Scripture
James 5:16 - Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

What are you facing?

No matter what we are facing, we need to do just that - face it!

Don't run! Fear NOT!

BUT go forward.

Yep that is my exercise bike. Rode it 10 minutes yesterday
and 10 this morning. Plan to ride it at least 2 more sets of 10 minutes today.

A step at a time is how we beat what is facing us. A step forward and not back.

Don't know what to do?

Ask the Lord. He promises to give us wisdom if we but ask.

Don't believe me - look it up. Go to Bible Gateway and search for wisdom.

Time to flex those feeble muscles and begin to make them grow.

Spiritual as well as physical muscles need to be used to make them stronger. USE THEM.

OK, just a little prod to step forward.  Remember one step at a time will get you there. Take a step now. Determine one thing you need to do and do it. ONE THING

Excited for all of you!

Let's go

Chemo #3

Just a quick update

Yep, yesterday had Chemo #3.  Went well and I feel great!
Finally got over the flu bug and must a got my perk back. So I feel really good.

The invading tumor is shrinking. [actually it started shrinking even before I started any chemo]  I can hear the cancer shrieking.  LOL

Big Red sent it's shock and awe bombs into the tumors and then my stealth drug hunted the stragglers and killed the bad cells.

Of course my good cells had their Holy Spirit hazmat suits on.

So I am pleased to say that I feel great.

Even managed to water the yard and clean out the fridge.

Now onto finishing that book!!

Love all you friends and encouragers.

Thanks for all the prayers.  I know they are keeping me going strong.
