So, here we are…3 chemo treatments in to her calendar of 8 treatments and mom is doing pretty good. She is such an incredible women and amazing mom. I absolutely hate it that she is having to deal with this, but I also know that there have been amazing things happening in all of our lives because of it.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. ~ Psalm 28:7 NIV
Please continue to pray for mom, she has her last chemo treatment of the “strong/bad” chemo this Friday, and although she has not been violently ill, she has lost all her hair, has ulcers in her mouth, and is generally tired from what her body is going through. She is also leaps and bounds ahead of where everyone thought she would be right now, so there are good with the bad.
There are some absolutely incredible stories in those chairs at the Breast Cancer center and every other week I am blessed to get a “peek” into the windows of their lives too. These women come together, care for each other, pray for each other, and inspire so many people in and around their lives.
I can’t wait to share with you some of the heart touching stories that I walk away with when I leave there on Friday’s. God is so good, and even though I wouldn’t have chosen this path for my mom I can be certain that God is infinitely wiser than me and that HE has a plan for this journey.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ~ Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
