4th round of chemo on Monday

Posted in Cancer,Sara by sicks on May 10, 2008

Hey faithful gang —

I have my 4th and final round of kick-you-in-the-pants chemo on Monday, May 12th. Although I will start a whole new round of chemo in June that will last for the whole summer, I am quite thankful that the really hard stuff is almost over. Hooray!

We have mentioned this before, but if you are so inclined, we always appreciate prayer: active cancer cells so that the chemo can identify them and blast them!; grace during the side effects; smooth week for the family; and being open to what the Lord wants to communicate with us.

Chris’ folks are in town for a few weeks, which has been great. I head down to my parents’ house for a few days for this round of chemo so I can recover in peace and quiet and then rejoin the family at the end of the week.

I am grateful tonight for the privilege of being a mother of three incredible kids, wife to an amazing husband, and being surrounded by the Body of Christ. These blessings take my breath away and are daily reminders of Jesus’ abundant love for me.

    Read this this morning and thought of you my friend.


    Question 1. What is your only comfort in life and death?

    Answer: That I with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own, but belong unto my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ; who, with his precious blood, has fully satisfied for all my sins, and delivered me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, and therefore, by his Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him.

    I can’t tell you how grateful I am for you sharing your heart with us on this blog.

    I took an overnight hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains this weekend, where my friend and I prayed fervently for your recovery, and for God to pour his love out on Chris and the children.

    Rest well, and know that we shall continue to pray for these specifics.

    The Hales send you all our love.

    I am praying that this 4th round goes well: to blast the cancer cells and you to hang in there. We love you dearly. Thanks for keeping us up to date with your walk through this. You are my hero. Say, isn’t it a beautiful day?!

    Love, Leonor

    Hey there lady—

    This bit’s almost over! That means part of the journey is BEHIND you! Yahoo! I hope you’re feeling much improved on this May 20th. It’s 2 am; I couldn’t sleep and thought of you. Hope you’re snoozing peacefully and getting all the rest you need.
