Sam's By the Sea
Well, tomorrow is the big day! My last AC chemo. In April I will have a scan to see how the chemo is working. I have a spot in my lung and two near my collar bone. If the chemo made them shrink, then my cancer stage will change. My doctor isn't real sure that it is cancer, but the radiologist thinks different. We will see. Please be in prayer for this!! At the end of April, I will start Herceptin for my HER2 type tumor. I will on this for a whole year. It is administered the same way that chemo is. One week after the Herceptin begins, I will start on my third type of chemo, Taxol. This will be every week for twelve weeks and I have been told that I will lose the hair that has still been hanging on, including eyelashes. The great news is that Taxol does NOT cause the nausea problems!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!!
As I have stated in other posts, this time I have had a much harder time being out of bed. I did manage to make it to church a few times. I really miss the preaching and spending time with our people. My husband preached on marriage Sunday night. He made the statement that he would never want to live the single life again. After 29 years, we are best friends and it was fun to listen to the sermon and laugh at the mistakes we have made through the years! What a wonderful husband I have!!!
Our people have been so sweet to me. I have been CRAVING lemon filled, powdered sugar donuts!!! We have a family that has taken it upon themselves to make sure I get a weekly fix!! Such a blessing is a small thing like a lemon donut, but oh how much it means to me!!!
Last Tuesday we were invited to eat dinner with one of our young couples at Sam's (our very favorite restaurant) for the wife's birthday. When it came time to pay the bill, the waitress told us that our friends had picked up the check!! What a way to celebrate!! The next evening the couple was baptized!
Hubby, Me, Evelyn, and Adam
Lastly, as I have to spend so much time in my bedroom, my wonderful husband decided I needed some flowers to look at as I lay in my LOVELY king size bed!!
So he went to the store and came back with flowers and a flower box. Then he drilled holes in the cement outside my window and place the flower box! Isn't he THOUGHTFUL?! You may also notice my Hoops and Yoyo C-U-T-E thingy! I LOVE Hoops and Yoyo and last Wednesday after the baptism Mrs. McGuire handed me a gift bag and this was inside! It even talks and tells me just how C-U-T-E I am. (of course I already know this!)
Well, off to get ready to go! Have a good weekend and I will see you all next week! Remember:
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
