On Thursday, April 1, I will be receiving the third round of chemo. It is hard to believe that nearly 3 weeks has passed already. I have been feeling so good and life seems so normal! I am trying to look at this round optimistically. I know that “my” nurse will be in Florida, so I will have someone new. I am sure it will be fine. I have great friends who are willing to give up the amazing weather we have to come and keep me company during the treatment. After this round, I will be half- way done with the nasty treatments! A supply of lemon drops and anise candy is waiting in the cupboard to help alleviate the nasty taste in my mouth following chemo. Keagan will be coming home on Thursday as well. What more could one ask for?
Easter, that’s what! Easter is truly my favorite holiday. Just think, Jesus was nailed to the cross, covering all of our sins with his precious blood. If we believe in him, accept his gift of salvation, then we too will see him in glory one day! Easter is a day to celebrate the victory of Life over death and declare that Jesus Christ is Lord indeed! May you all enjoy a blessed Easter!
The verse I will take with me to chemo treatment #3 comes from “Dude” – eronomy (that’s what fifth graders call it) Seriously, the verse is from Deuteronomy 31:6
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
Please keep me in your prayers. I picture an inservice with a bunch of cell phone alarms going off at various times to remind you to pray for me! Can someone video tape it, please?
Enjoy this awesome weather!
