Hi Everybody! Thanks for all of you who are continually checking on Mom and standing in faith and praying for her.
Tomorrow is the big day – Chemo treatment begins. I can’t imagine the feeling of going in and having yourself hooked up to an IV for 4 to 5 hours and knowing this is going into your veins. It’s so good to know that God gives us the strength that we need for each moment of life.
Pray for her as she begins this, that she won’t experience too many side effects. Chemo seems to have come a long way and they have many drugs to go along with it to curb side effects. They can control the nausea pretty well. Mom said that the 2nd week is usually the worst because your blood count drops and you feel like you have the flu – very achy and tired. She could also develop sores in her mouth and so she has to rinse several times a day with this solution and watch stuff she eats that has lots of acid. There’s a lot to know about this that we usually don’t think about.
Also, she has developed an infection in her bladder. She is on her 2nd round of antibiotics and they are hoping it clears up. If not they may need to send her to a Urologist.
Thanks, everyone, for holding us up. Thanks for encouraging us and praying with us!!
I shall not die, but live to declare the glories of the Lord! Psalm 118:17
