Hopeful signs!

You know what? I think things are going better this second time around. I had a pretty good day today even though I am still taking pain medication to keep the pain under control. It's not as constant as the first time, however, and I am not struggling as much with heartburn. I'm sure the beautiful, warm sunshine also helped to perk me up and I even sat outside for awhile this afternoon with my neighbour. Though this is my "low blood count" week, I do feel like things are going better. Please pray that no infection will set in this time and my white blood count will stay high enough. I'm just encouraged to be feeling this well. Yeah!
"This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it."



  1. Hi Sandra,
    We are also encouraged - to hear that things seem to be going better for you this time around. We continue to pray for you daily, and especially this week for no infections!

    Isn't it wonderful that spring has arrived? We picked some pussy willows on the Easter weekend - a sure sign of spring here in Alberta. Take care of yourself and enjoy the sunshine and the flowers!

    Love, Cindy & Paul

  2. Hi Sandra,

    Glad to hear that things seem more hopeful! I'm looking forward to our visit on Wednesday!

    Keep resting in His everlasting arms!


  3. Sandra...I'm so very glad to hear that things are going more smoothly this time around. I sure pray that it continues through the next days and weeks. It's so encouraging to see the benefits of the care that you are receiving.

    Heopefully you can enjoy some more sunshine and time outside today...another gorgeous spring day here:). I love it.

    I'm still not convinced I'm cold-free so, even though I was hoping to stop by this evening before heading to the conference tomorrow, a phone call tonight is going to have to suffice. Hopefully by Saturday I'll be well enough to visit again. I miss our visits!!

    I do wish you a fabulous day. Rest, relax, read some good books or the life of leisure:)...or at least your version of it for now!


    PS...I found the VSO tickets...dumb...
