Dear Friends, Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
These are our concerns at this time. Mom goes in for another lumbar puncture on Tuesday. Please pray that the Doctor who does the procedure will be proficient at this task and that the Lord would guide their hands. This week Mom will receive chemo on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Although she is on an Anti Nausea pills she is still experiencing mild nausea and finding that the drug is causing her to feel very tired and confused as her brain feels fuzzy and she has a hard time deciding what to do at all( which for Mom is quite out of character). As a result she feels that she spends most of the day sleeping.
She also wanted me to note that the chemo she is receiving is cyclophosphamide, ARA-C and once a week Methotrexate (bless those of you who understand what these are)!
The rest of us are continuing to move ahead and finding it strange how life does continue on. I almost forget how Mom used to look before she started chemo, and that made me a little sad. It is strange how something can be such a big part of your life but fall to the back burner of your mind for the sake of necessity. You can't let the cancer prevail your life, but you also can't help but acknowledge it's presence. Things are the same and things have changed. Yet Mom continues to be strong, faithful and loving.
Praise God that he is faithful and able to carry us in our time of need.

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, would have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen Ephesians 3:17b-21

  1. This is my verse for the year. I try to picture the biggest things I can imagine, and yet this is nowhere near what God can do in his LIMITLESS power and creativity. It's like straining to see the farthest point on the horizon, yet knowing that beyond that horizon there are thousands of kilometers of earth I can't see plus all of the heavens that are beyond my vision. May God continue to do 'above and beyond' in your life, Lorna and in the lives of those you touch both at home and at the hospital.
