Honestly there are successes to celebrate. For example, I am now walking without crutches. I use a cane sometimes but most of time I just hold JoLynne's hand. My leg doesn't hurt anymore hardly at all. Today my naps were only an hour instead of two. I walked all the way around the block with JoLynne and didn't even hardly stop once. I had the energy to write a letter to my son on his mission and to begin reading a novel to my children. I think that I need to focus on the fact that even though today wasn't great it was much better than yesterday. That is what I need to keep watching. Really it has only been two days since my last dose of chemo. I need to be patient. That was never my best trait.
We still feel outpourings of love from those around us. Today we had one friend bring us a wonderful soup, another brought us pies and a third brought us some delicious scones. I will try to eat a little of each but it will take some effort. My family is loving it though. Mostly I appreciate the continued faith and prayers in my behalf. I know that I am going to get better. It will just take time. Thank you for your continued love and concern.
