"In every moment, whether painful or joyous, God's light and life are upholding you, as near to you as your own breath. Therefore, never think at any moment that you are truly alone. For no matter what you feel, God's heart is feeling it with you." Thank you, Jan, for those words of encouragement and I hope you don't mind me sharing it with others.
Yesterday I went to my own GP for an appointment regarding the pain. Though he didn't have any quick fixes he said that I should stay on the course of medication that I am now on for at least 2 more weeks. Then if things are not improving we will have to find a new source of pain medication because he said we have to try to get rid of this nerve pain. And to that I whole-heartedly agree. That is the most difficult thing to live with right now and things don't seem to be getting a whole lot better.
On the radiation side of things - I only have 3 days left!!!!! Isn't that amazing? And though the skin is red, and the doctor prescribed special cream for it today, it is not bothering me a whole lot. I feel very tired and my list of things to do at the beginning of the day never get done. And that doesn't bother me, either. I am content to sit back and read and nap, and visit with any of you that drop by.
Thanks so much for your continued prayers, visits, cards, and for driving to various appointments.
