I just wanted to bring you all up to speed on my current sitch. As many of you know, I have previously done a tango with the big “C.” And it seems that I am such a desirable partner that it has returned to ask for my hand in yet another spin. While I am less than thrilled and slightly terrified, it would seem Jesus is confident that together, He and I, can take home the mirror ball trophy.
We’ve caught it relatively early. And my oncologist from the Coast put together an incredible panel of judges to come up with a treatment plan that began in January.
Since then, we’ve been hoping I don’t get COVID. I’m joking. No, but, seriously. Wash your damn hands.
A few weeks ago, I had my first round of brachytherapy and immunotherapy. And just this past Thursday, I started my first cycle of oral chemotherapy. It’s not exactly a super fun good time, but it’s definitely manageable as of right now. I have my moments of feeling nervous and mad and frustrated and sad, but I also know that Jesus is in control and walking every step with me. He has brought me through this before and He will be faithful to do it again. I have great support in family and friends and awesome doctors. Jesus has made sure I’ve got everything I need and I know he’s as close to me as my heart beating.
I don’t want you to worry or be upset - I just want you to be able to pray with me and be a part of this journey God has me on. I am so grateful for you all and am privileged to have you stand with me in this. I know you will be my encouragement when I need it and my prayer support each step. And that you’ll do the same for each other.
This is going to be a space where updates will be posted as we get them. That way my heart can RELAX knowing that I've done my due diligence in keeping everyone in the loop.
