I can’t recall a day when I felt more grateful to be able to stay indoors. It’s currently -7, which is balmy compared to where I used to live, but nonetheless, it’s a great day to be in. We’re doing laundry and dishes, making brownie cookies, and listening to Christmas music (I love it year round).
I have much for which to be thankful.
Several of you have asked for an update on my mom. She started chemotherapy after Christmas. She gets a dose of some drugs at the hospital every other Monday, then wears a pump that delivers the rest of her chemo in a stylish fanny pack for two days. She goes back to the hospital and gets the pump removed and has two weeks off. This all sounds very basic and easy, but she has been experiencing very severe side effects to the first round of drugs (the doctors say they’ve never seen someone react as badly): nausea, rashes, sensations of icy cold when she touches anything or drinks or eat anything that isn’t at least at room temperature, weakness in her limbs and sleeplessness. So…please pray for relief from the symptoms and a heart before God that allows her to see His goodness and mercy through the suffering. We know that He puts us through trials because He loves us. Thank you for your prayers!
