Tough Night

Patty started feeling the effects of the Neulasta shot after dinner. She had felt pretty good up til that point. She fell asleep early but woke up in the middle of the night really nauseated and soon got sick several times. This continued throughout the night into this morning. I called Laverne and she came over to help get the boys ready when they got up as one of our small group members, Tracy, was going to pick them and watch them today. I would be gone taking the girls to school by the time the boys woke up.

This is the first time she has really been sick like you would expect someone to be on chemotherapy. Please pray that God would alleviate the nausea and sickness as well as the aches and pains from the Neulasta shot. Please pray for our spirits as well.

I found this and wanted to share it.
What Cancer Cannot Do
"Cancer is so limited..."

It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot destroy peace.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot suppress memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot steal eternal life.

It cannot CONQUER THE SPIRIT. Amen! My thoughts and prayers are with Patty, you and the kids daily. Kimberly Phillips
