I hope you all know how much I appreciate every prayer and word of encouragement.  It truly lifts me up.

One of Stephanie’s friends shared Isaiah 41:10 with me & I have been reading verses 9-13…..and I imagne these little cancer cells that “strive with thee shall perish” {Thanks Ray}

It has been a rough few days.  Nauseous, aching, cold, and tired…and I just keep telling myself this is the feeling of cancer being killed.  I wanted to make a post and update everyone, but I just didn’t have the energy.  Today is a bit better….and for that….I am so grateful.  One thing that has me frustrated is Saturday I woke up with horrible pain in my jaws… shooting pain into my teeth and head and ears.  I figured it was a side effect of chemo, but after reading all through my ‘side effect’ papers it wasn’t listed.  So I called my oncologist today and he said “aww, you’ve got TMJ….it’s all the stress”   Mac said his dad would have trouble with it when he was on steroids and I was on them for 5 days, so maybe that has something to do with it.  Oh goodness…

When I left the infusion lab after chemo my nurse went over so many things with me about what to expect and do’s and don’t’s.  So, he said, of course, that the first week after chemo I’d feel like crud {pretty accurate} and he said the second week I’d feel a little better but that my white blood count would be the lowest that week.  He showed me where the papers say to avoid crowds such as shopping malls and church.  The nurse said “we tell our patients to go to church, just don’t hug everyone”.

    Sorry you feel like crud, but I suppose that is the first step of becoming cancer free! Your health, strength and recovery is being prayed for by New Hopewell Baptist Church. I’m a jaw clencher when I am stressed, and have to force my face to relax, it’s hard to do. Hope you are feeling stronger and pain free soon.
    Love you,
