Just wanted to update everyone on how I’m doing
medically. I’ve had a set back
since chemo on Thursday. My
breathing capacity has decreased.
I can sit still and be fine, but that’s it. Everything else makes me short of breath. I’m back on my breathing treatments and
cough syrup. I’ll be honest. It stinks. I’m tired of being sick. I’m tired of being tied to an oxygen cord. I’m tired of it being “hard work” to
get up and get a drink. I’m tired
of watching my family, but not caring for my family. I’m just tired.
Thank you for your prayers during this difficult time.
Two more things… For those of you who live locally and know
my husband, Bill, I just wanted to mention something. This is hard to say,
because I don't want to offend anyone. At the same time, I want to protect my
husband. We all know that I am an open book. However, Bill is not. He is a very
private person. There are a handful of people that can ask him anything and you
know who you are. For everyone
else, if you ask him how I'm doing, please know his answer is full and complete
and he's not looking for a lot of follow up questions. We're all just made
differently. He's doing an amazing job of holding it together for our family. I
couldn't do it without him! Thank you.
Last, my children.
I know some of you are reading the letters to your children. We are, of course, not reading the
letters to our children. The time
is not appropriate. If your
children are friends with my children, please make sure they don’t mention
anything about the letters to Will, Gracy or Caroline. Thanks, again for your continued
prayers and support during this difficult time.
