So.....lastnight Jonas sits me down and happily announces to me, "Becky...tonight you can choose WHATEVER dessert you want. You tell me and I'll get it for you. Whatever you're in the mood for. Except.....not strawberry shortcake. And....not brownies...or anything with peanut butter in it. Or cake...."
Well...he just eliminated every dessert I eat. Needless to say, he ended up getting a dessert he wanted :)
Today was another great day :) Full of energy and strength! (although my white blood cell count is still low) Jonas once again got me out of the house and we took a trip to Kittery, Maine for the day with our kids. Just a good day :)
Now for some specifics you can pray for:
- my parents come in 8 days but I'm nervous I'll be at the point where physically I am WIPED OUT and having to lay down all day long (since I have chemo this coming week). I know they don't care, but I'm praying for supernatural strength and energy just to be able to enjoy their company while they're visiting me.
-I'm praying my body continues to react well to chemo. I've heard it can slowly get harder and harder each cycle as your body's cells are basically being poisoned and struggling to rebuild before the next chemo treatment.... Basically with this first cycle I had one rough week where I couldn't function and the rest of the time I've felt great! So I'm praying that, even though maybe typically I would slowly be getting weaker and weaker and finding it harder and harder to make it through and find enough energy, that God will give me supernatural strength to have good cycles...good months full of energy and strength and feeling like me. That he would build my immune system back up quickly after each treatment and preserve my cells as much as possible.
Thanks again for your continued care and prayers!
