Thankful for Restful Weeks...
Thank you for all of your prayers! We really do appreciate it.

This week has been both good and bad. I will start with the bad to get it over with. Here is the real side of fighting cancer. I have been dealing with this leg/butt pain this week. It seems to be getting a little worse. I am taking 600mg of ibuprofen two times a day. I have thought about taking my prescription hydrocodone a couple of times but I try to keep that for dire circumstances. It only hurts when I am up and moving around so the ibuprofen does a pretty good job of keeping it at bay.

On Friday I tried to work outside in our wooded area since it was so nice out. Lots of sticks and tree limbs fell over the winter and we like to keep it cleaned up as best we can. Weeds have also started growing that need to be sprayed. I thought I would be ok working out there for awhile. Our wooded area is bumpy and I didn't realize how bad my feet have gotten with neuropathy. Let's just say that I don't do very well walking on uneven surfaces. It caused me to fall twice. I was very discouraged after that. I am very thankful for a husband who finished my work after he had already done his work for the day.

The good news for the week is I got to rest a lot. I took lots of naps. The dogs love this too! I have been feeling more tired lately so this was a much needed week of rest. I also had time to read and binge watch House Hunters International. I love seeing how people live in other countries. Lets just say that for this introvert this rest week was much needed for my soul.

  1. For the pain in my leg/butt to get better as it heals.
  2. For the neuropathy in my feet to respond to the different treatments we are doing for it.
  3. For my 6th round of chemo that I will get on Tuesday to heal me completely! (praying BIG for this one)

  1. You are always in my prayers. You may get knocked down, but you keep getting up! I know it is not the best time right now, but you are doing it! I am very proud of you!
  2. Continuing prayers for successful treatment and recovery!
