Round 3, TKO

TKO, technical knock out...after tree times of chemo, I've been judged the winner!  Okay, let's not pretend that I actually know anything about boxing.  I just thought it was a appropriate metaphor.

Yesterday I had my third round.  I entered the room with surprising dread, knowing what was coming.  I went home with a green face, a headache, and more nausea than ever before. 

 But today is a new day!  I woke up feeling restored and refreshed, so I'm claiming victory!

I really feel so covered in prayer by so many people.  Thank you for that.  I know it is making a world of difference.  I am amazed at how well I have physically endured this treatment.  My doctor just informed me on Monday that the second half of my treatment was the less dramatic portion.  ?!?  I was stunned and am feeling so amazed!  Praise the Lord!

I've been having pretty bad hair days these days...I keep my patchy bald head for dear friends and family, allowing the public to see me in scarves and hats.  It is a funny thing to cover my bald head, still feeling like people know what it means; like it is a cancer banner hovering over me or something.  I'm sure I'm exaggerating, but these are the things that run through my mind sometimes.  

In other news, school is starting next week and I am still waffling about what to do with the boys.  We have two good options and I just don't know what to do!!  I love having them home so much, but know this just might not be the season for it.  Praying for clear direction as we only have a few days to decide!

Today was Psalm 28.  It was a good one...give it a read if you haven't already!
