Chemo Round 3

Well, tomorrow is Chemo Round 3.  I have mixed emotions about it.  I am excited to just get on with it as we stretched it out to 4 weeks in between treatments instead of the normal 3 weeks due to low blood counts, and my desire to be feeling well for my girls spring break.

 I am apprehensive as I know with this round, I will get the shot that brings on the bone pain and spirals me into a weakness that is hard to explain. 

I also will be getting the test results back from the side pain I have been having (details on my Caring Bridge journal).  I won’t lie, I am afraid of what could be coming my way with those results.  

My mind could easily get carried away with the “what -ifs” and heads there too often despite my fight to keep truth in mind.  

 I plan on blasting the song “Lovely Day” tomorrow morning before chemo, it always brightens my day.  The phrase in the chorus “Heaven on the inside, my soul is gonna fly away” is one that is comforting to me.  I have Jesus in my life –Him in me– and because of that my soul can soar daily, no matter what the circumstances.

    Hi Amy – I was off for a couple days and didn’t realize yesterday was chemo day for you. I’ll be praying for you these next three days as the chemo does its work and causes yucky side effects at the same time.

    I was where you are right now SEVEN years ago. You describe my feelings at the time so eloquently and I thank YOU for reminding me just how close God is, through good and bad, happy and sad! The pain is a curse and a blessing, but as I look back seven years ago, I realize that it was much more of a blessing. I have never met you but I know you…you are my sister in Christ and a kindred soul in your fight against cancer. You will get there…just like me…and you will be much, much stronger and happier than when you started this journey. I’ll be praying for you!

    I am praying for you today as you have your third chemo infusion. Visualize the chemo drugs attacking any cancer cells and destroying them! Rest when you need to rest, and know that you are being remembered in prayer. God Bless you and your family.

    God bless you as you go for your treatment and your scan results. Love is with you. I hope it’s okay if I share with you a quote I received last week: ‎”The next time you find yourself alone in a dark alley facing the undeniables of life, don’t cover them with a blanket, or ignore them with a nervous grin. Don’t turn up the TV and pretend they aren’t there. Instead, stand still, whisper His name, and listen. He is nearer than you think.” – Max Lucado
    I see you are already doing this. Just wanted to give you a bit more support as you do it.
