The words most women never want to hear from their husbands "you look like you have put on some weight". Those were the sweet words my husband spoke to me last night. I was excited to weigh today. When I stepped upon the scales, it showed I have gained 4 pounds in 3 weeks!!!! What others call a curse, I call a blessing knowing that my appetite is good and that some meat is getting back on my bones.
My friend Theresa and I went in today and did our normal routine. My nurse was in fast motion taking care of several patients and accessed my port without any issues. The last few weeks we've had trouble getting blood return in my port, but not today, it flowed out immediately. Thank you Jesus! They normally show me my lab work before starting treatment, but that step was almost skipped until I mentioned that everything must have looked good. She quickly went to check, and my numbers were too low for her to treat me without the doctors consent. I told her to let the doctor know that I felt great and that my numbers were low last week but after getting treatment everything went fine. My doctor agreed to carry on with the chemo. Everything went very smoothly and I was grateful to walk out of Highlands feeling so good. I was able to go to Wal-mart and buy some flowers and spend some time in the yard this evening planting. My heart is full of joy and gratitude. I am so thankful that I was blessed with an amazing day and each day seems to be sweeter. I'm not sure why things have to be so difficult for me to realize how many blessings the Lord bestows upon me on a daily basis. In the midst of storms, there is still reason to praise Him!
Thank you Jesus for blessing me with life and health today. Thank you for allowing me to see your creation and for being my Creator.
I pray others will find their delight in Him. Jesus is the reason I find joy, peace, happiness and contentment in everyday life. Without Him, I would have no Hope.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
I'm still here! Barely!
