Fear. I have it. My confidence and faith has really taken a hit after all of the complications I’ve lived through.  I know what you’re thinking: I’ve lived through them.  Most likely, by the Grace of God, I’ve lived through them.

I will try to focus on those words and maybe my confidence and faith will be restored.

Wednesday, I have an MRI to determine if this new treatment is working.  I am so scared to even hope for good news.  The results of the MRI will be discussed with my doc on Friday.  If things are progressing, I may be admitted right after that appointment to start the 2nd treatment.

Slowly, I have grown a bit stronger each day. I wish I had more time in between treatments to build strength. At least I feel more rested…..

That brings up another fear: every time I enter the hospital “strong”, I come home so weak, having to start over again.  Every darned time. Jeez, most foods still don’t taste good and I have to start chemo again soon. That is not a complaint, I’m simply stating the truth.

Maybe it’s because this chemo has been so hard on me. Forget the toxicity, I am just now able to eat without too many foods tasting disgusting or too salty.  I’ve existed mostly on a daily protein smoothie, water/coffee/etc, and dinner.   Not much of an appetite, still a bit nauseous about some foods…probably causing a lack of energy.

I think overall, I really want to hear some good news.  Something has to be positive. Something has to change for the better.  Please God, let there be good news this week. Warrior Peeps, I ask that you pray for good news this week, good news that will turn my positivity back on.  I need it so desperately.

Much love to you all.

oh how I wish I could take some of your bad stuff and turn it into good stuff with a magic wand or something. how I wish I could give you some more strength some more energy anything at all that could help you, lift you up from this bout that you’re going through, but since I can’t I know who can, our loving God. but for right now I don’t know what His plan is. I just have to keep listening when He says “Be still and know that I am God.” please keep talking to Him even though we think he’s not listening to us He has a plan.
god bless you and keep you. Just know you’re in my thoughts and prayers constantly

Love you always Jean Ann

Thanks Jean Ann, I am trying to be patient 🙂 You’re right, sometimes it’s hard to understand that there is a plan in motion. I will keep on keeping on and just pray! xoxo
