His mercies are new every morning, great is His faithfulness. The doctor came in to my hospital room early this morning and went over my lab work and procedures from yesterday. My abdominal X-ray showed signs of improvement therefore leaving her to believe I do not have a blockage but my issues have been from inflammation. They are not sure if it is all related to chemo or to a virus and chemo combination. We waited until after lunch to see how I was feeling before making a decision about being discharged. The medication I am receiving at the hospital can also be taken at home. When I weighed out the pros and cons, my bed @ home won hands down with uninterrupted sleep opposed to blood work and vital signs being checked every few hours during the night time hours. I will see my doctor Friday to see if I will be having chemo before the weekend or postpone until next week.
There is no place like home for healing. Today was a cold rainy day and Tony brought me home and built a fire in our fireplace. We had our dear friend Beth bring us homemade chicken noodle soup, cornbread muffins and apple crisp/ice cream for dessert.
I don't know how much longer this journey will carry on but I do know I serve a Savior that isn't finished with me yet. Below is a song that Jordan tagged me on Facebook today. We heard it back in January when we went to Passion in Atlanta and she told me then, this was a song written for me. Here are a few lyrics: Promise Maker, Promise Keeper, You finish what You begin, our Provision through the desert, You see it through to the end. The Lord our God is ever faithful never changing through the ages, from this darkness You will lead us and forever we will say you're the Lord our God. In the silence and the waiting, still we can know you are good. All your plans are for your glory. Forever we will say you're the Lord our God!
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
I'm still here! Barely!
