I survived Chemo last week. The picture above was taken before the Holidazzle parade downtown Minneapolis. I was doing chemo in this photo-hard to tell. I was feeling that good on Thursday night. Friday and Saturday I didn’t feel great. I spent most of those two days in bed. That was too bad as my sister, my brother-in-law and 2 nieces were in town. Karen’s parents came to take care of us all-making meals, taking care of the kids and cleaning out all the snow. One of the neighbors also helped with the snow. I made it back to work yesterday and will most likely get in a full week. Everyone at work has just been awesome to me. Tomorrow I go in to get fluid drained out again. I don’t think it will be as much fluid as before, but I still imagine a few pounds will come out. Without the liver working real well, the fluid will just need to be manually drained off every couple of weeks. Next week I visit with the doctor again and then after Christmas I will have chemo again.
I continue to be blessed with a lot of visitors and a lot of family time. This week is Brenden’s 8th birthday, a Christmas get together with my dad and then a visit from Kent and Joy Bahr.
Next Monday the 20th is Pray for the Cure at my church from 7-9 p.m. Anyone is welcome to come and pray with/for me.
Please take time to read through some of the comments from previous posts. Those comments are such a blessing to me, but I think you will find that they will be a blessing to you as well. The depth of people’s hearts are amazing. You will be blessed!
I just wanted to get a quick post out to tell you that I am doing o.k.
Longer posts coming…
