Hi M’dears 🙂
It’s already Friday…wow how the week flies by! Monday was my 4th round of chemo. My uncle & aunt drove my mum and I to PMH that morning. We tried to be in the daylab several hours in advance to see if they could squeeze me in for an earlier appointment. The commute took less time than what was typical… thanks to the G20 going on in Toronto. The highways & local traffic were pretty empty in comparison to normal. Looks like everyone is averting from the Downtown core and either staying at home or heading north!
Even though we were early, we didn’t start until 2:30. Once again, because of the G20, all chemo appointments on Friday were moved to the rest of the week. For this round, I requested Alice, my favourite nurse (who’s been very good at finding my veins) With her help, they found the vein on the first try! It was even in a spot where I thought they couldn’t use…but I was wrong! The chemo was done at around 6:30 (and I was only one of two people still left in the daylab). I was tired, but not as bad as last round.
Today, the Neupogen injections started again. This means, I can go out a little more than the first part of the week after chemo. With wedding related appointments in the upcoming month, it’s nice to get out of the house, to have fun running some errands with my mum, and to just enjoy the beautiful summer weather. It was also a nice treat to have Joyce & Syd visit yesterday 🙂 Thanks friends!
Thanks again for all your support. Ike & I would not be able to endure without your love & your constant reminder that God is Good, All the Time! I received an email this past week (Thanks a bunch, LACES!!) with a verse that DOES remind me… Psalm 121
“I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.”
Cheers & Blessings,
