Subject: update on Connie
Doug has asked that I send an update myself on my progress.
I am improving daily, but it is still a slow go. The pain/burning still
exists, but is better overall. I will be most happy when it is gone!:) I
do try to do a little more each day (I find it hard to stay put sometimes),
but by afternoon/ evening I am usually worn out. Some days seem to give me
more energy than others. I have started driving short distances, but am not
ready to face any long trips or even I-565. I also haven't tackled the
grocery store, yet, but that will come as I can be on my feet more. I have
put on a couple of pounds and do not look quite so sickly - except for that
bald spot on my head!
The last doctor's visit went well. I no longer take the potassium and my
blood counts were good. I see him again in a couple of weeks. I'm supposed
to see the radiologist, but I've avoided making the appointment until I've
healed some more. I don't know when the final check will be to make sure
the cancer is gone, but please continue to pray that it is completely and
I have been blessed to have my sister and now Doug's mom stay with me and
help. She leaves Sunday and I will be on my own. Pray that I have the
strength to do what needs to be done.
Although this has been a terrible experience in many ways, I still believe
God will use this for His Glory. I know already many lives have been touched
and for me personally, I have grown closer to Him. I have also seen the
body of Christ work together to minister to me and my family in ways I never
imagined. Thank you again for your prayers and may you continue to pray for
renewed strength each day and for complete healing.
