Peering into the Future

March 30, 2021  •  3 Comments

The first chemotherapy session is done. We didn't get a lot of clarity as the bone marrow results are not in yet, and the nurse did her job, as Dr. Thompson said she would, to tell us of all the possible side effects. That was the only nauseous moment of the day as she factually described unpleasantness. I have a plastic, electric powered injection machine that is supposed to deliver medication tonight that emits a bright green flash every few seconds. I'm the first firefly of the season to show up at the Hideaway. And I picked up two additional nausea medications plus Prednisone from the pharmacy that I am supposed to take for next five days. Go back in a week to check white blood count and do it all again in three weeks. I did see that I am stage IIE which means it's early and is located in extranodal tissue (my stomach) as well as a lymph node. It was a long process as I was in the clinic for 8 1/2 hours. Plus rush hour traffic both ways. We timed that right, didn't we? 

We are so appreciative of all the encouragement and prayers. It means a lot to receive the messages.

Corinthians 13:11-13
Amplified Bible
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now [in this time of imperfection] we see in a mirror dimly [a blurred reflection, a riddle, an enigma], but then [when the time of perfection comes we will see reality] face to face. Now I know in part [just in fragments], but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known [by God]. 13 And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love.

God bless you and sustain you through this journey. There are a lot of great pictures God still has for you to take.
