Today is Beautiful!

Today I woke up without pain!!!!!! The first day since my last treatment. I'm really going to enjoy this day. Tomorrow is my 3rd treatment.

I received a call from a Cancer Hope Network that puts a cancer survivor with someone who has just been diagnosed with cancer to offer assistance through chemotherapy. I'm really excited to have someone who went through the exact regimen of chemo. I can compare when my symptons are normal and when I should call my doctor. They are supposed to contact me in 48 hours.

I praise the Lord for this day!! Thank you to everyone for your prayers....I want many more days like today!

Good morning My dear,
The next three days are another round of poison ..pray..poison... pray.
I am praying that you will have a good day. You will have your chemo clown (aka) Steve with you that I am sure will take your mind off of the sad depressing day.
Steve…. You are a jewel! I have watched the way you have lovingly taken care of Leah. None of this is funny to you… but for Leah’s sake you try to put some laugher in her day to help her get through the process. You are forever doing for the family and never complain. Leah is blessed to have such a wonderful nurse/ huband......

One thing we have learned along this journey is....
Cancer is more than just a disease
Cancer is a cat burglar,
a thief ....
it finds an opening and creeps in
Catching you unaware.
Cancer steals more than just your health, it steals your money, your security and your time.
It takes your privacy, your dignity and your peace of mind.
It steals your very essence,
your sense of self.
Cancer is an impartial opportunist.
If given a chance ……
It robs you of everything you knew to be true,
it becomes your reality, your shadow, your bed mate.
Even when you think it has gone,
it robs you of restful slumber,
waking you in the middle of the night to let you know that it is still your bed partner.
Cancer steals your sanity
and leaves behind confusion, insecurity, a quiet madness.
The only effective weapon against that insanity,
is FAITH , hold tightly to it.
Know that you are not alone. You have family and friends who are standing with you in faith believing that you will come from this victorious. Faith, can and will
Move Mountains, and it will chase away
the monsters from under your bed....
Now Faith is the substance of things hope for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1
We are waiting on the day that the doctor says…
you are all ”C&C” CLEAN AND CLEAR
Love, Mother

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalms 91:1
My prayer today is that you find comfort in the shadow of the almighty
Remember when you were a little girl and sick with a fever and how comforting it was when your mother layed her cool hand on your
forhead? If we could only go back.

Lord, I ask you to comfort Leah today, let her feel the coolness of your shadow. Take away the pain, take away the cancer, take away all fear, increase our faith, and LORD FORGIVE OUR UNBELIEF AND MAKE HER WHOLE.
