Most of my health status remains unchanged and my energy is slowly and seemingly continually, improving. My vision is stable, slightly wonky but unchanged as long as I get adequate rest and nutrition. I tolerated my last round of chemo the best yet with only mild fatigue. I only have 2 more rounds of chemo!!!! Slowly (and sporadically), my physical activity is increasing and I am becoming used to the cyclic nature of energy ups and downs related to chemo. See below for more health specifics.
Praise God for:
- My sick leave benefits
- Stefanie, our nanny, and her continued lovely presence in our home 4 days a week
- (that sick leave benefits allow finances to pay Stefanie!)
- Physical activity re-entering my life and our weekends transitioning from crazy, chaos awfulness to soul-filling (still tiring ;) family activities like time at the splash park and a nature walk at
by Hope this past weekend. Flood
- A steadiness of my heart
- Our community of support
- Healing! (See last post)
- Sustained energy to enjoy my family
- Marriage strength – Our marriage is strong, but the pressures on it with our family and health demands are apparent
- Good report (no tumor growth) on my MRI early June
- Energy for increasing physical activity, which I so love to participate in
- Wisdom in pursuing new passionate ideas ever brewing in my head: to be wise to follow my heart in these areas, but to be patient and also wise in allocating my energy.
- Helpful tips from the dietician next week to have health-filled as well as practical advice in order to “fuel” my body well
- Summer holidays!!! We will be away from home for over 3 weeks --- Heading to the Shuswaps for a week with friends, visiting in
then spending a week at family at . Lots of kilometers and different sleeping arrangements. I’m trusting that the craziness would be well
out-weighed by the sweet family, friends, nature, and God time! Pray for the preparations and for a calm
spirit preparing for and embarking on this adventure. Camp
I love you and I depend on you, my supporters. Thank you.
