My dear friends and family,
I will admit I am anxious about receiving my first round of chemo on Thursday. The day will begin with a prayer service with staff and volunteers at our church at 9:00. The appointment at the cancer and hematology center begins at 9:30. My mom will be taking me to the appointment and staying with me until Randy arrives which should be around noon. We have been told to plan on being there for about 5 hours.
The verse I will hold close to me all day is one that many of you have suggested. It is Isiah 41: So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
What can you do to help? Pray. I would like to ask you to consider praying at a very specific time. However old you are, pray for that minute after the hour. So, for example, if you are 29, you could send up a little prayer (or a big one!) at 9:29, 10:29 and so on. If you are 59 or older, perhaps you could choose a time earlier in the hour. There are not likely to be too many one year olds taking on this challenge!
Specific Prayer Requests:
• A good night of sleep tonight
• No worries about school
• The port will be easy to access
• No allergic reactions
• Kylie and Keagan will be able to concentrate at school
• Give thanks for wonderful doctors and nurses!
I’ve been told I will have my hair for about two weeks after the first treatment. I have registered for some hats from a company called Headcovers Unlimited. If you are interested, you can follow the directions below.
