Tuesday Evening: I was asked to give a “10 minute Speech” in front of the board members for the Wellness Communtity (Where I have my support group). These are the people that give the money to the Wellness Community, and needless to say my speech isn’t very good. It is Tuesday at 5pm. Pray that I would be calm and not nervous. That I would have atleast my key points memorized and that I would have 10 minutes worth of valuable things to say!
Wednesday: Wednesday I have my Neuro Oncology visit with an MRI (with and without contrast) at Moffit in Tampa. I don’t know why I am so nervous about this one, maybe because it is right before Christmas and can either make this a great Christmas or a very sad Christmas for my family. Pray that their is nothing there, that I have a “cold” scan and that Dr. C is amazed with how well I am doing. My MRI is at 8am, and my appointment with Dr C to go over the results is at 10am.
Thursday: Emma has Transplant Clinic. She has been under the weather since Saturday so pray that she would be well enough to travel. She had a 102 fever yesterday (Saturday) but hasn’t had one since. We have all had chest colds, so I am assuming that is what it is. I talk to the Transplant coordinator on Saturday morning and she and Dr. Fricker agreed. Dr. Fricker prescribed amoxicillin, which seemed to work for the rest of my family. Her appointment is at 10:30 in Gainesville.
Friday Morning:We are leaving bright and early for our trip to Virginia (My parents are watching our house and feeding our dog) Pray that we have a safe trip and that my fatigue doesnt act up. Usually 1-2 weeks after chemo I have enormous fatigue. I was on chemo last week (the best cycle ever, I might add!) So The week of Christmas should be my down week, pray that it is not. Also pray that our families will have the most grand time and make lots of memories. Pray especially for that.
General Prayer: Also, remember to keep my friend Kate in your prayers as she spends the Holidays at a residential Physical Therapy center. She will be there for about 3 weeks while she works to regain function on her left side. You can follow her story on her blog here: A Brain Tumor Story
Thank you for all of your prayers. It is really nice to know that I can ask for prayer and there are literally thousands of people praying for that specific prayer request. You don’t know what that means to me and my family. So, from the bottom of my heart, Thank You….
Until Next Time 🙂
