This weekend I have Mark and Harrison going to a Father/ Son retreat with the church and 3 kids going camping (RV style) with Grandpa and Grandma Denise to a state park close by and so it will be very quiet indeed with only Holly, Hudson and me here. That’s why I am thinking Saturday at 1:00. I’ll show the movie to whoever wants to come. Of course you’d have to reply here on the blog or call me so I can plan accordingly. Hudson takes a nap at that time and so that will be the best time for me.
So I’ll call this morning and see if I can do chemo, I didn’t have a chance to do the blood work on Monday with the crazy schedule and so I’m not sure if it will happen today as we’d planned or if we push it back, because she might want the WBC count first. I’ll have to call the doctor at 8:00. I got up at 4:00 and couldn’t shut off my brain and so I came into the office to get some work done. I really like the idea of changing the chemo day to Monday, so that I am better on Friday’s for CC, which only has another 7 weeks with a Spring break too.
I am thinking about cancer like this:
You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you. Colossians 3:10.
Isn’t sanctification great?My having cancer is of no surprise to the Lord and he allowed it and I am grateful for whatever it brings. This living with cancer is like a totally new world and life which sometimes still feels a bit surreal. I take great comfort in knowing whatever happens from here on out that God is in control and he is growing me during this process. No doubt about it. I have John Pipers book Don’t Waste your Life on the shelf with tons of other books I have been trying to get to. I think it’s funny and ironic that I bought it via Amazon just a few weeks before being diagnosed.
Have a great day. I’ll of course keep you posted.
