Chemo tomorrow – 12/27

 We hope and trust that you all had a wonderful Christmas.  It was rather quiet here…just the three of us.  Kai was pretty fussy.  He hasn’t been sleeping well and stayed up way past his bedtime due to the Cortes family traditional celebration.  We are titling our Christmas “Kai’s Cranky Christmas”.  It wasn’t really that bad, but it wasn’t the joyfest of wrapping paper tossing I thought it’d be.   Here’s a picture of Kai on his new tricycle:

Later in the afternoon, after Kai’s much needed 3 hour nap, we went over to the Moure Family Dinner.  We lived with Alice Moure for a month when we first moved down here, and she invited us over for Christmas dinner.  We played games, sang Christmas Carols and they all prayed for me before we left.  It was very touching and special.

That brings me to today and tomorrow.  Today I had blood drawn.  My sugars, I’m sure, are through the roof…good thing they’re not looking at that number!  🙂  I have my doctor’s appointment at 9:00 and then Chemo is scheduled to begin at 10:30 tomorrow.  Oralia is on her way here to be with us for a few days. 

A few specific prayers: 

Sleep – Kai isn’t sleeping, so no one is sleeping.

Nausea – Last time it lasted about ten days.

Fatigue – not Kai related.  It hit me harder last time than any other. 

Courage – I’m really scared and need my postive spirit to return.  Even with the great news (which is still truly great), the tears have been quick to come these days.

Thank you to all of you for your prayers and encouragement.  I have truly been blessed!
