Our weather has been all over the place. Cold one day and summer-like warm the next. I’ve been suffering from a cough for 2 months and this weather doesn’t help. I caught a virus from my son, and, the worst of the symptoms are gone, but the cough lingers. I’ve heard other people complaining about the same thing. I talked to my NP last Thursday and he prescribed a medicine but, so far, I haven’t seen any improvement. It’s quite wearing!
I went to the NP as a follow up to my first new chemo treatment. It’s not been horrible so far. The treatment took about 2 hours as compared to the 8-9 hours the other chemo took. I’ve been tired but I’m not sure if that’s more from the cough. Tiredness has become a permanent part of my life. I chose to look on the bright side of things, though, and am quite happy that I’m not having any horrible side-effects, so far. I try to do things I really enjoy every day and am thankful for what I can do!
Yesterday, my youngest son took me to the next town over and we had our favorite pizza and went to the courthouse square to eat. It was such a beautiful day!
It was so nice to get out and do something different! It was such a wonderful day and I’m so thankful for these special memories with my son.
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me”. – 2 Corinthians 12:9
God gives me strength each day to face the hard things. He does the same for you, if you believe in Him and have faith in Jesus. I have learned that trusting in my own wills and desires creates a weakness, rather than a strength. Trusting in the Lord each and every day, provides me a strength I do not have on my own. I’m so thankful for the love of God! I’m also so thankful for you, my friends, who pray for me and encourage me as I travel this hard journey.
