Yesterday was Linda’s final session of radiation. Radiation wasn’t supposed to have many side effects, but for some reason the last few days have been rather challenging. Because I desire a healthy marriage I am refraining from posting the picture of her sleeping a couple days ago . . . I’ll say this . . . it was half way on the couch and half way off the couch. Apparently it was the only way she could get some comfort. I have mixed feelings at moments like that. There is a little humor in that she is sleeping in one of the odd configurations that would be characteristic of our kids, but the reason for her doing so is far from humorous.
Today, she starts chemotherapy. The treatment consists of three different drugs, two oral and one shot. We have very little idea what to expect in reference to length of time for the treatment or how drastic the side affects could be. Be praying for Linda as this next step of the journey starts.
A song that finds its way to my heart many mornings . . .
I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like thine can peace afford.
I need Thee, oh, I need Thee; every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior, I come to Thee.
