Good Morning Prayer Warriors,
We admitted Jesse on October 17th. Here it is May 17 and we are doing the last Chemo treatments. She will stay in the Hospital for around two to three weeks getting her ANC back up to a minimum of 250 to go home. Seven months ago. Wow.
Jesse's ANC is 50 this morning. It's 9:15 and they are giving her the IV Chemo treatment. The muscle shot of Chemo is at 3pm and then we are done. It's hard to believe.
Jesse got sick, about a half hour ago, right after pushing the button for a push of Fentanyl (her pain med). This is before the Chemo started so we think the pain meds make her sick. We are going to try other means of relieving the headache she has back. Less throwing up is better.
Our room mate, Zoe, went home last night. We didn't sleep as well as we thought we would but it was a little quieter. Please continue to pray for Zoe and her family. They just finished round one so they have a journey in front of them.
This has taught us so much about faith, patience, giving, and relying on God and others. I for one am not very good at asking for, or accepting, help. The acts of others has really hit home to Dee and I on how we need to be better at all of those traits. With Gods help we will continue to grow to be more like Him.
Have a great day and rejoice with us as we cross the finish line.
