Just Checking In

Good morning to all. 
I have been up and moving around a little, but fading fast!  Getting hard to keep my eyes open!  Hoping to hold out until lunch.  Have some nausea this morning, so have been snacking on jell-o and pretzels, but I think I'll need a pill soon.  I have to stay on top of it, or it gets worse.
The next few days are going to be rough, so prayers are appreciated!  Prayers for Rich to please!  He is awesome, but I know this is stressful, and work is too.  I will continue to praise God through this storm!
Only one more round of AC left, then the Taxol/Herceptin will start 3 weeks later.  Everyone is saying that should be easier, although some report fatigue with that too.  It doesn't sound like the fatigue is as extreme though. 
My biggest goal is to feel well enough to make the trip to KC to move Shonna there for college.  We will be going down there around Aug. 8th or 9th.  Orientation starts Aug 10th.  This will be 2 weeks after my last AC chemo, so I should be ok.  She will be renting a room from a guy that used to be her Youth Leader at Bridgewood.  He is married now and has 2 small children.  God has definitely shown her that this is where He wants her to be--it is so exciting to have that confirmation.   I am excited to see what He has in store for her.
Hope all is well for everyone else out there!  Thanks sooo much for prayers, cards, e-mails, etc.  I love to hear from you!
Love and Blessings!


  1. I'm glad you 'checked in' today. I've been wondering how you're doing and I really dislike asking you six times a day!

    I am praying for you and Rich, and will step it up for both of you. I have the day off on your next chemo day, if you want to give Rich a break.

    Hang in there...Jesus is Lord and He is with you through this.

    Love you. :-)

  2. Praying God will give you strength and healing...

    Love you.
