I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow to discuss two new medications he wants me to take. Please pray that our meeting will go well and that we can figure out if these drugs are something that will actually help me.
Please pray that when I start them I would be spared the adverse side effects. One of the drugs in particular has some nasty side effects, similar to traditional chemo drugs that have me concerned. Up to this point I have been able to do most everything that I normally do but I'm afraid that being on these new drugs I will be limited more.
Please pray that all the natural supplements and things I'm doing would be helpful and that if there is any other things I could be doing they would become available to me.
Please continue to pray for my children especially my youngest. He is a joy most times but he is also two and has a very strong personality (not sure where he gets that from ;) and it has been weary at times to know how to love and train him properly.
Lastly please pray for my emotional well being. I am not depressed, but I do have low points as you can imagine, and I am still processing all that is going on in my life right now. This picture below has always moved me, but now it seems to touch me even more. Pray that I can ever have a picture before me of my great high priest who has been able to sympathize with all my weaknesses. What a comfort to have such a Savior. I sometimes forget this truth and find myself stuck in self pity and fear.
