A Miracle!

This morning, after two weeks of excruciating pain, I rolled over…no pain!  I sat up…no pain!  I stood up…no pain!  I was in shock!  The pain had been so incapacitating, that for it to be gone overnight is nothing short of a miracle.  Thank you to all of you who were on your knees praying for me.  Today has truly been a miraculous day!  

I do have another prayer request though.  Ever since beginning to take Nexavar, I have had a fever between 102 and 103.6 degrees for a few hours each day.  The doctor said not to worry too much about it because I don’t have any other symptoms, and that my body is probably just trying to get used to the medication.  He said take Tylenol and keep and eye on it.  Today was the longest and highest fever I’ve had.  Maybe because I haven’t been taking the Tylenol with Codine – I don’t know just a thought.

Kai has become a pro-tricycle rider!  He’s going places!  Seriously though, he’s really fast!  He loves to ride his bike everywhere!  It’s a great way to get out some of his boyish energy!  🙂  

I am beginning to feel the familiar effects of the chemo – dry mouth, voice changes, and chemo belly.  Yuck!  I am hoping to figure out what this medicine does to me, so that I can learn to deal with it.

Thanks so much for your prayers!

Love,

Monica
