Human Limitations and This Week...
Happy Easter! HE has RISEN!

The prayers worked! Thank you! I didn't have leg pain like I normally do after chemo. Praise God! I did have foot discomfort though for two days. It felt like I was walking on rocks. I'm thinking that has more to do with the neuropathy than from the chemo. I also felt kind of dizzy for about 3 days. So I just laid low and read a book.

I'm going to be real with you for a bit. I felt frustrated this week. Human limitations were at play and have been for awhile but this week it left me feeling frustrated. I get very tired doing anything. Getting ready for the day tires me out and makes me have to rest for about 20 - 30 minutes before I can do anything else. Any time I exert any energy doing anything requires me to sit down and take a break after. I know that it is what it is, but I don't get as much done as I would like. Devin always reminds me that my only job right now is to rest and heal but I still like to help out around the house when I can.

I didn't have any appointments this week which was a nice break. Next week is jam packed!

  1. That I will not get anxious about getting my port next Friday.
  2. That I will recognize that the human limitations I am having are only temporary.
  3. That Devin will continue to not have stomach pains. He seems to be doing well with the new supplements.

    Devin is 1000% right about your job right now is to rest and heal. It's so hard to rest, but when it's frustrating, remember that God rested, too! And the Bible says he grants sleep to those He maybe you can soak in God's love for you next time you are tired against your will. I love you so much - and it's sooo good to hear an overall good report. God's grace is abundant and beautiful on you, Lori! xoxo
  2. I understand your frustrations. Navigating with a pair of crutches and a hip brace after surgery left me unable to do nearly everything. I was used to doing everything in the house, so that was a hard reality for me and I just had to accept my limitations, knowing that it was just "for a time". The simplest of activities (taking a shower, drying my hair, getting dressed, etc) took a lot of effort on my part. Do what you need to do and don't worry about the rest. Take one day, one moment, at a time and give your body the time it needs to heal.
