Holy crap! I’m tired. Yesterday was a big day. We went to the park with Connor & Blake…with Aimie & Paula too. Only stayed about 20 minutes, that was enough.
Last night Bob got chills, then a fever of 100.3 and started having difficulty breathing. I started freaking out a bit…then reminded myself to CHILL. Then told him to stop it. Aimie came over, brought some anointing oil and prayed for him. Fever left, he fell asleep. When he woke to use bathroom his hair was falling out in chunks. Called Aimie back over to shave his head (she cuts boys hair with clippers….not a bad job either, she’s Bobs hairdresser now too). 15 minutes later, his head is shaved…Now he LOOKS like a cancer patient.
Slept well all night. Got to clinic at 8, and surprise-surprise he needs 2 units of blood. But first a set of blood cultures and another chest X-ray. Between units of blood we have to drive to another hospital to see his kidney doctor ( still watching kidney function ), back at PSL for second unit of blood. Holy crap! I’m tired.
Just started thinking of getting home and in my PJs….gonna take the channel changer away from Bob tonight, need a chick-flick. His phone just rang…he answers and says, “pneumonia? Let me give the phone to Kim.”
Chest X-ray shows a touch of pneumonia. Add another doctor to list tomorrow. We see infectious disease doc tomorrow. Same one who treated him 8 years ago. But this is not the same as last time.
Okay…now the HOLY crap:
Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS. My faith will not waiver. My flesh can cry out all it wants, but my faith remains grounded in Him who does not freak out. My God is bigger than this. God does not grow tired.
Isaiah 40:28-31Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard,that the everlasting God, the Lord,the Creator of the ends of the earth,fainteth not, neither is weary?there is no searching of his understanding.29 He giveth power to the faint;and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,and the young men shall utterly fall:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;they shall mount up with wings as eagles;they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
oh yeah, and WBC = 2400!!
One thought on “Day +14 Holy crap!”
I just wanted to say hello and that I am thinking about you both. I am a member of the “I hate cancer” club too. The frustration, the ups and downs, the lack of sleep. It will all be worth it. You are both strong and your faith is undeniable. You’ve been here before and you know your life together is beautiful and worth fighting for. Stay strong for all of us, we need you both. Love Kathy.
