Next blog update will be posted by Saturday, December 1st, at midnight.
Hello again everyone. Another week is in the books. 7 down, 11 to go. From my health point of view, this was a fairly uneventful week. The cycle seems to remain consistent, where I feel rough through the 7th day after the infusion, then things calm down. My family was willing to push Thanksgiving to Friday, in hopes that my stomach would be better, and it was. Unfortunately, while I started feeling better, my wife started feeling worse, and wound up with a stomach bug. She felt pretty rough Friday and today, but I think it is starting to ease up some now as I type. Going back to the beginning of the week, on Monday we received good news on my sons foot. Everything is healing nicely, and he can stop using the boot and change to a stiff sole shoe on Monday, Nov. 26th. Then we have another follow up on December 3rd, when he should be fully released to all activities. Our one neighbor who had a follow-up visit also got good news that her bone was completely healed, and she could start putting weight on it again. Lastly, my blood work this week came back… in the words of the nurse… “phenomenal”. Looks like God is working things out all around!
I know that is short and sweet… but those are really the key points that I can remember.
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for another blessed week. Thank You for healing the feet in our neighborhood. I’m not sure the status of the 2nd neighbors foot, but You do, and I pray You are healing it nicely as well. Thank You for helping my blood work numbers come back “phenomenal”, and helping my stomach calm down by the end of the week. I pray for my wife, that her stomach will make a full recovery very soon. I told her she didn’t need to have sympathy pains on my account. As we celebrated Thanksgiving this week, it gave us time to remember everything that we truly can be thankful for. All of those things come from you Lord, and to You we give the ultimate thanksgiving. Please be with all of my fellow blog readers in this coming week. Keep them healthy, keep them safe, and help them through any trials they may be having. Amen.
