"Lab Work=Shots"

I went in today for my 10 day post-chemo lab work. The nurse told me my blood counts were at a point of needing NEUPOGEN® which is used to rebuild white blood cells. I will have another shot on Friday and Saturday, then go in on Monday to recheck my numbers. I did my best to talk her out of giving me a shot, but she said with my counts so low, I run a higher risk of getting an infection and could even end up in the hospital. I told her since I'm in the middle of planning a wedding, I need to do everything I can to stay healthy. I figured there was no need to complain but should be thankful for all God has done for me and that He has provided great healthcare for me through the doctors and nurses that have treated me. My prayer is that on Monday when I go back in for blood work, that my numbers would all be exactly where they are supposed to be and that through this weekend I would remain very healthy and have plenty of energy to accomplish all the wedding plans we have planned. There are 72 more days until the wedding and everything is going very smoothly and stress free. Psalm 109:26-27 "Help me, O Lord my God! Save me according to your steadfast love! Let them know that this is your hand; you, O Lord, have done it!"

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