"Gotta Slow Down"

I'm not sure how to begin this post.  First, I need to learn to be still and know He is God!

Since December 31st I've done nothing but go, go,go!  I've been to Atlanta, GA, Osage, MO and twice to Texas, all within one month.  On top of traveling so much I've continued working and I've had another round of chemo and my body is screaming "time out"!!!!   Im not sure if it's all the traveling, chemo or combination that has my immune system struggling.  I've had some female issues that have caused me misery, along with thrush in my mouth and throat and severe rash under my arms.

We had a big weekend for our mom's on Friday night and Saturday morning with over 100 moms.  I spoke twice running fever the first night, but my friends prayed over me and the fever went away.  Saturday afternoon began our annual girl's event called String of Pearls and we had 135 girls participate and it ended today at noon.  Through all the struggles I've had a very difficult time eating and swallowing, therefore causing unwanted weight loss.  I'm asking for my friends, family and blogging network to pray for me and that my body can get some relief.  I actually came home early last night instead of staying with the girls at the hotel and slept in my own bed.  I have to admit, I was in bed the whole day and look forward to sleeping again tonight.   I will be calling my OB/GYN oncologist tomorrow to try and get in this week for some relief that might require a minor surgery.  Through all of this my loving husband has nurtured me and taken such great care of me, but he's calling a time out for me too.

Update on my dad; he was moved last Monday to a rehab facility and progressing forward each day.  He's so ready to be home and we are praying that will be in the very near future.

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."

  2. I have read your each and every post. The grace you have received from the Lord is awesome. You have such a wonderful outlook and it's very obvious that you have entrusted your health to our Heavenly Father. I'll be praying that your health will improve and in the meantime, take a rest and in slower speed do what you enjoy doing. God bless yoy and I do enjoy every post!
