Arg — mouth issues!

Posted in Cancer by sicks on January 20, 2011

Hey gang —

We’re still doing pretty well here mentally and emotionally with my recurrence and my treatments. We are so thankful to the Lord that everything is going so well and that chemo seems to be doing its job.

The only new (and annoying) thing is I am struggling with mouth sores, which is quite common for those going through chemo. Chemo kills the bad stuff and the good so that has caused the departure of good cells in my mouth that keep it free from sores and such. So a bit icky but I would appreciate any prayers on this front! I am trying to get a prescription filled for “magic mouthwash” –ha!– to help reduce the pain and discomfort. Hopefully that will help.

On another front, I look forward to more time with the Lord to learn what he wants to say. Things have been quite crazy on other fronts so I have not had quality time with the Lord. I would really like to spend some good time like I did 3 years during that cancer battle where I learned so much from Him. I don’t want to miss anything that the Lord would want to say.

Love to you and yours!
