Re: I'm asking for your prayers

Wow Swampy, I've got to start reading these forums better. I am very sorry to hear you are going through this. But, is sounds like you are in wonderful hands (the doctors', your loved ones', and His).

I will include you in my prayers as well.

Here is an interesting story you may enjoy....

Five bunnies about 6 days old were attacked by a dog and orphaned. The three surviving bunnies were not doing very well.
Noah is a non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon that we have here in rehab. Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in...even sleeping in front of the door to the cage. One morning, I only counted 2 bunnies in the cage. So, I hurriedly picked Noah up from the front of the cage so I could look inside. And to my surprise... there was the tiny bunny under Noah's wing, sound asleep! The bunny had crawled through the cage, preferring a feather bed, no doubt.

Now, they are all together, and the bunnies are doing GREAT. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah's feathers, he extends his wings out to surround them and snuggle. If one moves or they start sticking out, he gently pushes them back under his wing using his beak!


He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust.
(Psalm 91:4)

Re: I'm asking for your prayers

Swampy, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer four years ago and had a surgery to lift the lump. She's a very healthy woman right now, doing all household chores like nothing ever happened.
Her doctor said that the keys are having positive attitude and keeping full faith that GOD can do exceedingly above all that you can ever pray or think of.
I'll remember you in all my prayers. GBU!

Re: I'm asking for your prayers

Hi ya, Palms!

Thanks for the love! I'm doing pretty well this week. The 3rd week of a treatment cycle is the "up" week. It's been taking me 10-12 days after chemo to start feeling "normal" again although many of the side effects are still in play...mouth sores, loss of taste, bloody nose etc.

I go back next week for the 3rd of 6 rounds of chemo. I'm really hoping that this next treatment goes well because in the "up" week I plan to travel from FL to CA to see my son graduate (MBA from UCLA Anderson Business School) and celebrate Jack's 1st birthday. I will have treatment #4 two days after my return to FL.

After that there will only be 2 "hard" chemo treatments!! Then a break and probably surgery, possibly radiation etc. I will still have to continue on one of the chemo meds (Herceptin) for 11 more treatments (given every 3 weeks), but they say that drug is not as devastating or abusive to the body as the other two that I'm now taking with it.

hugs...
