Still Recovering

What a two week period. If there is a list of troubled emotions I think I've felt them all over the last two weeks. Enough about me.

Patty is continuing to receive treatments for her arm three times a week. There has been some improvement which is a good sign. She keeps wanting to take the wraps off, she tends to be a non-compliant patient sometimes, but I reiterate to her that if she wants it to get better she has to keep it on.

She has two Herceptin treatments left. After these all of her treatments for the cancer are complete. Almost a year and a half. Combine this with my dad and its been an extremely tough period. We feel like we've worn everybody out with all the child care we've had to have for all of Patty's appointments. Unfortunately, this continues with the appointments for her arm. It may seem trivial but this is one of the things that grieves us is to have to continually ask for help. What makes it worse is we have four to care for! I digress.

I'm contemplating posting my journal entries from Haiti here if anyone is interested. Let me know.

Please continue to pray for Patty's arm, her mental health, and our family as a whole.
