My oncologist called me this morning to give me the directions on how we are to proceed with chemo this Monday. I have to go to the lab the day after Christmas and get blood drawn to check my cell counts. Then I have to pick up prescriptions I will take at home the night before my chemo therapy to reduce reactions I might have to the drugs. It’s all becoming all too real now. The day of chemo, (Monday), they will send me home with a shot which Tim (or myself) can administer (yeah right!) We’ll see about that. This is to cause the white cell count to rise. It goes directly to the bone marrow, causing bone pain. “Treat it with Motrin” , he says. That should be interesting! He wished me a Merry Christmas and gave me his personal cell phone number to call if I needed anything. Well, I’m trying not to think about all of that right now and want to share a particularly special Christmas song with you that I wrote down the lyrics to in our cards a few years ago….here it is in video below. I hope you listen to the words and know that I realize there are many more hurting people out there right now and it is helping me to focus on God touching THEIR lives and I hope He touches yours today too.
