I'm finding my health trials to be such a spiritual battle. Right now most of the battle is trying to be positive and feel oppressed by the unknowns and fear and fatigue. I feel better every time somebody prays over me or tells me they are praying for me. some people believe I'll be completely healed of the leukemia. I know God can do. I know I desire him to do it. I don't know if he will. I've seen stronger believers die of cancer. I guess I'll leave that to him and control what I can-my attitude.
I'm hoping to get my PICC out tomorrow or Wednesday. There's no more sign of cellulitis. Whoopie! or Yeehaw as some say here in AZ. What we thought what might be more turned out to be more superficial clots that are slowly going away. The pharmacist with the infusion service said "Your infectious disease dr. said it could come out if your oncologist isn't planning on using it." I thought, "Drats! I do have an oncologist now, don't I?" but she's planning on pills and not IVs. I know some people live with these for a long time. God bless them!
And after WEEKS of up and down, I'm finally down to 250! 240s here I come! I still have to keep reminding myself I don't weigh 300+ anymore! It would be easier to remember if my knee and legs didn't hurt so much at work. I wish I could fly somewhere just so I don't have to ask for a seat belt extension!
I have more clothes to give away. I didn't realize I had so many 28-32s.
I decided I have to drink MORE than 64 ounces of water a day to keep from feeling like a water balloon. funny how that works. Gotta hurry up and finish this bottle so I can get more in before bedtime.
Just wanted to let you all know I'm feeling better-for now. I'm hoping I can keep it that way.
Thanks for your support and cyber-friendship. 3FC rocks!
