Good Morning Sunshine!

I know it’s been a week since I wrote but it has been a rough week.   Why I thought this chemo cycle was going to be bumpless, I do not know. Wishful thinking? I blame the drugs. So, now that the “bad” is over I am so happy it’s over. The emotional part is that I have to go through it again 4 times. The exciting part…I only have 4 more chemo treatments. Double edged sword there. After next time, I can say I’m half way through!
Today, Curt and I are adventuring out today to our cabin and I am excited to see a different view. 6 weeks in the house is beginning to be monotonous.  

I heard this week of a friend who passed from his cancer. I can’t do a thing for the family due to my own situation. Now, that is frustration. If I could say something that I feel strongly about, it is this: I know that he didn’t want the cancer. I do know without a doubt that he (and I) took the cancer before his wife, his children, his family and close friends. Nobody would ever wish this on another person, But, we take it gladly because we would not want anyone we love to go through this. Maybe it’s a reminder to me that Jesus felt the same way on the cross. What love! I don’t know if that will bring comfort to those hurting themselves, but it gives me a bit of strength.

I have a PET scan on Thursday and am excited to see the results! Wouldn’t it be a miracle if the cancer was gone? The doctor told me he didn’t feel the nodules anymore. A Light at the end of the tunnel?  

I am doing some sewing and find it is my happy place. I have a goal to try to finish some UFOs. (Unfinished objects for yall non-sewers).  I am still so humbled by your kindness, your prayers, and esp the food! We are eating like kings! When this is done, we will probably starve.   

Love to all!!

Sandi

    You continue to be in my prayers daily Sandi. I am working on string quilts for charity and thinking of our class in Toccoa and how much fun it was. Hope the better days come more often than the not so good ones. You are a warrior!

    Reading through the book of Job gives me added empathy for you as you go through these chemo treatments. May God continue to bless you with that positive attitude of faith.
