Thanksgiving is behind us now. Tomorrow is the first day of December! Gosh! This year has flown by. I hope the next few months pass by quickly as well. I have 2 chemo treatments behind me now. Not great but could have been worse. Treatment 3 is set for tomorrow morning. With the past two treatments, the nausea usually kicks in on the second or third day so Wednesday or Thursday may not be too good. Thankfully, it lasts for just 2 or 3 days and then things seem ok...until the next one. I will have a break from the treatments during the Christmas holiday so that will be nice. Still trying to wrap my head around this whole process...not looking forward to the weekly treatments but just trying to take things one day at a time. Have an awesome support system...up close and from afar! It amazes me the number of people who have been and continue to pray for me on a daily basis. It is really a good feeling!
Trying to get a few Christmas presents ready. Not a big emphasis on gifts this year...more about family and friend connections. Material things tend to take a back seat when a crisis comes up. That is actually a good thing, I think. Alex has been amazing through this whole ordeal. Getting quite an education for a nine year old. Love him to pieces! :)
I think this is God's way of telling me I need to slow down and take care of myself for a while. I have spread myself too thin sometimes trying to see after everyone else. I am realizing that they will all get along just fine without my help...I need to concentrate on me. That is a hard thing for me to do.
Allen and Sarah have gone deer hunting this morning. I am really hoping they get something! I would love a dinner of venison roast. It has been quite a while since we have had any venison in the freezer. I got spoiled in Kansas City where there was always venison to eat. I will keep my fingers crossed!
Hope December turns out to be a great month for everyone! Hope your holiday season is wonderful this year. Don't forget to stop and give everyone you love an extra hug. Love you!
