Last night was not a good night!

Last night I think my body gave me one of the last HURRAH's of pain! I must say it was the most excruciating pain I think I ever felt. I felt so bad because it was right before everyone went to bed and what a way to send off your children! My kidneys hurt, everything was a another pain I had not gotten before. The great part is that for all intents and purposes, the chemo schedule is over.

I have testing in 9 weeks to make sure the chemo did what it was supposed to do. If it did, I don't have to worry about the chemo again.....if not, well.....I'm not sure and I'm not expecting this to happen so we'll have to wait to see.

Steve, as usual comforts me through the pain and is up within a couple of hours getting ready for work. There are no words to describe some people. I don't think I could have done it without him and even if I could have, wouldn't have wanted to try. I'm in awe of his strength.

My sister, Diane called me from Indiana last night. She told me that it was pretty warm yesterday. It was a whopping 35 degrees and they thought it was warm. I still cannot get warm and it has been warmer than that here. Believe it or not, I can hardely even type right now because of the neuropathy. The cold makes it so much worse. Oh well, as I said....I pray that it is all downhill from here.

I'm going to call my sister to stay with me today after last night. This will be the 3rd time I've actually called and asked someone to stay. Last night was pretty bad and I feel like I should probably have someone, just in case....I can't get it under control myself.

I'm going to sign off, as my hands are on fire but will blog more later. I know the best is yet to come, it is just going to take a while to get there.

As always, thank you for your thoughts and prayers. It has sustained us thus far and I know it will get us through!
Love to all,

Hi Leah, missing you so much. I knew you must have been going thru a terrible storm because you had not blogged in a while, neither had your sister, so I just prayed even more for your strength and God's mercy. Rest now and come in when you can, we're here for you!
