Today Tony and I decided a trip to Hawaii would not be the smartest thing for me during this phase of my journey. I have chemo scheduled for the next three weeks and the drug that my doctor is giving without insurance approval would be scheduled the week we were to be gone. We feel this is the wisest decision for now and we have no idea how this new chemo will effect my body. Chemo and being in the sun do not equal smart decisions. How can you go to Hawaii and not be out in the sun? We will have a more joyous reason to celebrate once this enemy is defeated!
Tony did some research about MD Anderson and there was a place to submit a second opinion question on-line. We filled out all the information and should hear back from them by Tuesday. We are seeking guidance and wisdom on this journey and trusting that the Lord will direct our steps in every area of our lives. Psalms 25:4-5 "Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long."
We received an email back from MD Anderson with a confirmation number attached and at the end of the numbers was LCY. Might not mean much to others, but Tony calls me Lucy and we thought it was maybe a confirmation from the Lord that we did what we were supposed to do.
I am thankful to have had peace about everything these last few days and I know many have lifted me and my family up in your prayers. God's grace is sustaining us and we will continue to trust and wait upon Him.
Psalms 27:13-14 "I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord, in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
I'm still here! Barely!
