My little share for today
Just to give you a little update - I went to the Oncologist yesterday and will start the first Chemo treatment on the 23rd of May. I have six sessions, once every three weeks. I must say the doctor put me right at ease and was very laid back about the whole process. Tomorrow I have an appointment with a nurse who will explain all the details to me for the preparation. He said that 90 percent of patients loose their hair... so praying that I may be in the 10 percent that doesn't, but will look at hair pieces as soon as I can. They are very forward here with wigs, and can make them look so natural. He also told me that the form of cancer I had could possibly react positively to a new drug that was discovered in 2005. They are checking it out in the laboratory in Montpeillier. If so, I will be receiving injections after the Radio therapy for even more protection for the future.
Its a whole new world actually. It's like having a Down Syndrome child - until you enter into that world, you are closed to it and have your preconceptions and opinions. When you have to enter into it - it opens you up to new blessings and a changed mindset - gives you compassion for handicapped people and prayer! Many forms of suffering can be blessings in disguise! So too, with cancer - it is a world I would avoid, having a negative mindset about it, now I have to enter into this frame - it has softened me and opened my horizon to understand cancer in a new way. God is a good God, He doesn't send sickness but I have seen He can use it. On the other hand, God is the Healer, He can heal it too! It fills me with so much love for the One who created us!!
May I ask your special prayers for the first three days after the 23rd May - I need the courage to not expect the worst and to get through it. I have been getting so much positive input from so many survivors that has relaxed me. Also the psychological effects, which I am quite sensitive in. Once again thank you for sharing this journey with me.
