Well, this weekend I picked up a cold! YUCK! So my chemo port placement was put off until next Tuesday, January 12. My husband tattled to the doctor at our appointment yesterday and told him how I had been working on Wednesday and Thursday. By Friday night I had a fever and was in bed. The doctor asked me if I had forgotten that I had cancer. I just smiled. Pray that the chemo will start on January 20.
Now on to the subject at hand, the journey continues. My old pastor, Dr. Hyles, always used to say, "Don't miss the journey for the destination." I must admit that my mind is focused on completing my journey as quickly as possible and with this mind set I just might miss some things the Lord has for me. I am trying to remember this as time tables change. The other thing about a journey is that one usually collects souvenirs! Something you pick up along the way to take with you along the rest of the journey. I really didn't want something or someone else to have to travel this journey with me, but the Lord had another plan. My friend 'Hope' has been diagnosed with the same cancer that I have. She will be having a lumpectomy on Friday, January 15. Please pray with me that the margins are clean, they get it all the first time, and that it has not spread to the lymph nodes. Hope has strong faith and I know the Lord will get her through this time. She is experiencing that great wave of grace that only the Lord can send.
