Second Round of Chemo’s Over

my first round of chemo didn’t give us the results that we were hoping so I had to undergo a second round. it was a very difficult and scary journey. i had blood transfusions most of the time and there were “passing out” episodes too. i went back to “soft” and “liquid” diet and my hickman line was re-installed. my blood count was fluctuating and my spirit, was, most of the time, low. the result of this “repeated treatment” is of great importance as this will tell us if i still have to undergo a bone marrow transplant.

thank GOD, the chemo sessions are over now and my doctor will remove my hickman line by tomorrow. yipee! my blood count is slowly picking up and by faith, i claim that i’ll have remission this time. i’ll have my bone marrow biopsy by thursday morning and if everything goes well (of which i’m sure it will) then i’m all set to go home. double yipee!

BUT…….bad news: i still have to undergo 5 sessions of radiation therapy. good news: i have an option to take the radiation sessions as an out-patient. yahoo!

again, i want to say thank you to those who prayed for me, offered healing masses, sent encouraging sms, funny mms, etcetera. words are inadequate to express my gratitude.

and to my LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, my JEHOVAH ROPHI, i want to offer my highest praise. You have again demonstrated Your great love for me. my heart is overwhelmed with Your faithfulness. i am in AWE of You!

indeed, “the steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness” Lamentations 3:22-23
