General update

I finished the Ara-C this afternoon and will finish the clofarabine in the morning. So far side effects have been mild, for which I am thankful. The headaches have also let up, so Monday's spinal tap has been put on hold for now. The only test on the horizon at the moment is the 14 day biopsy, which I'm expecting a week from Monday. My biggest complaint has been a sore back. I think it is just a process of adjusting from my firm mattress at home to the foam ones here at the hospital.

Thank you as always for your prayers.

Dear Amy,

I have been reading your blog for awhile now. I don't remember how I stumbled on it but I am glad I did. I have never experienced the seriousness of a condition such as yours but I, too have had many health problems--that have ended me in the hospital--when I wanted to be at home, taking care of my boys and my husband, doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom...anything... just the NORMAL! I am comforted that even as God saw Haggar--even Haggar--in the desert of her life, God sees you in this circumstance-- thirsting for a "drink." Genesis 21:19 says, "then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water." God met Hagar’s need.

I love this poem that Sheila Walsh includes in All That Really Matters:

Think not thou canst sigh a sigh,
And thy Maker is not by:
Think not thou canst weep a tear,
And thy Maker is not near.
Oh He gives to us His joy,
That our grief He may destroy:
Till our grief is fled and gone
He doth sit beside and moan. --William Blake

I'll be praying.
In Christ,
