Not much to report
So, whereas it’s been two weeks since my last update, I don’t feel like I have much to report. Chemo continues (I had another session today), but I reported most of my news on that front in my last update. The good news is that my last treatment may have been my easiest one yet. Yes, there was a bit of fatigue, but much less than the ones before my last surgery (and no hiccups!). I think the tingling in my fingers is getting a little worse, but not really much. The doctor feels we should press on. And, after today’s visit, only *2 left*!
Other than that, the last two weeks have been relatively uneventful. I’m managing to work, though I’m getting in less than half the hours I’m used to. However, there’s a break in Brodie’s hockey now, so I’m optimistic that may go up a bit. Speaking of Brodie’s hockey, unfortunately his season ended on a bit of a sad note – he didn’t make the Alberta Cup team, but he seems to be handling it better than we’d expected.
I re-read the book of Job last week, and I’m hoping this doesn’t come across as clichéd, but… I’d like to echo Job: “The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.” (Job 1:21 NIV) Of course, that may sound a bit more negative than I mean to come across. After all, another piece of good news is that my moods/emotional state are slowly improving! “Blessed be the name of the Lord.” (KJV) Also, God continues to provide in ways that surprise us and keep us praising Him.
Hey – I’d love to hear from you as well. I may not respond quickly (as I mentioned last time, I’m behind in my email responses), but I do enjoy hearing from friends/family. :-)
