One week post chemo, and hanging in there.  Side effects continue, wearing me down a little in terms of how many of them have shown up to play with me.  Thrush and a urinary tract infection have brought special fun this week ;-).  However, each day does seem a little better than the one before, so we are grateful for that.

Prayer request-please pray the chemo is doing ALL it's paid to do.  It's doing many things we wish it weren't, but as long as it's doing the one thing we want it to do -KILLING THE CANCER, then we can endure with purpose.

Your kind words of encouragement, gifts, help with the kids, meals, love, kindness and PRAYERS are so amazing.  Our family feels completely enveloped in love.  It's truly overwhelming (in a great way) at times.   I believe it's really helping how we are navigating this road.

Next chemo is Tues, Sept 20.  Pray for effectiveness please.  My aunt is flying out for a few days and will be here for this time as well.  So happy to have her come.  She's hilarious, fun and great to be around, she'll be good medicine. 

My family is away enjoying a camping trip, I opted to stay near running water with my tummy issues.  Glad they can get away, get re-juvenated and take a wknd break from cancer.  I, too am enjoying some quiet time, a clean house and friends and family.  A win-win.  Wish I could take a break from cancer also, but alas.  Prayerfully my break is next year!

Mount Cancer is feeling like, with God's constant help, we can climb and conquer.  We're a little higher up the peak, enough to look down and see where we started.  And knowing we aren't at the beginning of the trail with the WHOLE mountain ahead of us is encouraging.  Each day gets us closer to the top.  Trying to enjoy the blessings He's put along the way.
