Update November 5, 2015
I would like to share with you all that I am doing well, more than that I am thriving! I started my new medication about a week ago and so far I am experiencing very little side effects. This is a blessing and truly a miracle. I do have some joint pain, and random pains that come and go, a tiny bit of hair loss, and I am tired, oh and hot flashes, but that's about it. I have noticed an added benefit to being on these drugs. I have struggled with emotional ups and downs in the past... imagine an emotional roller coster ride each month. My dear sweet Mother always told me "Oh honey just wait till you go through menopause you'll feel so much better." and of course I would be like... GREAT I have to wait 20 years before that happens in the mean time I'll just be crazy. Well people God has a sense of humor. As you know these drugs are putting me into early menopause and my emotions have never been so stable! I had my blood work done one Wednesday and all is good.
I continue to do everything I can naturally to support my body during this journey. I am so thankful to have so many of the resources necessary to care for my body in this holistic way and I truly believe that this has been part of why I am feeling so stable.
More importantly I know that it is the prayers of the people around the world that are making a difference. The Lord is answering those prayers and healing is taking place... not only physically but emotionally and spiritually. I have a joy that seems to bubble up inside of me I can't explain. I see the Lord continually guiding us in the direction we need to be going, His Word nourishing our hearts, psalms and spiritual songs uplifting our spirits, and continued words of encouragement and care from His people.
But please continue to pray! Here are some things specifically you can pray for...
Pray that as I continue to take my meds they would not do any damage to my body. Also pray that my liver would be able to handle these new toxins and flush out anything unwanted.
Pray that this cancer would continue to be eradicated from my body. FOREVER! :)
Pray that our hearts and minds would stay only on things that are positive and of good report. We find it so easy to go down the WHAT IF... mental road. That satan would not steal our joy. That we would live each day filled with thankful and peaceful hearts.
Thank you all so much!
O Love That Will Not Let Me Go
