I have a few Bible verses that I turn to when I am having a rough time. Maybe some of you have a good verse that you turn to when things are tough? I would love it if you would share them with me, so I can add them to my word doc.
Today is already a better day. I am very weak, but my brain is much clearer! I was actually able to carry on a conversation this morning! Showering is always difficult--my legs were very shaky today! But the hot water feels so good. :)
My hair is really thinning now. The past few days I've been losing a lot of it each time I shower or brush it. I'm hoping to get a shorter haircut soon, then I might have to go hat shopping!
Thanks, Whidbey, for the the ideas about the holidays. I know my health is more important at this time, but I'm a mom, and of course I don't want to "ruin" everyone's holiday. I'll try to set it aside and not worry about it. :-)
In my blog from last Friday (I think), I mentioned that the doc said light exercise helps the fatigue. I think he meant the normal fatigue one gets from chemo, not what I've been through the past few days! I could barely move from the bed or chair I was in! The next few days I should try and move more, to regain some of my strength. Today, just walking around the house is enough. I'm trying to get up and move around more.
I FINALLY got my new tv for the bedroom. Thanks to my hubby for letting me get one--he's always been against a tv in the bedroom. Not very romantic ;). Unfortunately it doesn't work without an antennae or cable hook up, so it'll be a few days before it works.
Don't know if my cousin Jill has a chance to read this, but just want her to know that she is in my prayers as she battles lymphoma. You can do this! And PLEASE accept help from others. People really do want to help, and they really do care about you. Love you!!
Hope to get a bunch of Bible verses from you all!
Thanks for the love and prayers; I pray for blessings for each of you all the time!
