God is still good. Last night I felt sick and started panicking that I wouldn’t be able to start chemo on time because of it. I went to bed at 7:30 and feel fine now. I’m so grateful for the healing and for the lifestyle that I can do that and it’s not even a blip on the radar. The kids were in bed, Yaacov … Continue reading A New Day
This is Yaacov and me from the pics we took the other day. Just Abigail, almost 4 years old, in her homemade glasses. Precious Naomi and me, almost 8 months old. This is Yaacov and me with the girls, my mom, and my brother Ben. Thanks to all who are reading this story and praying for us. I pray for you all as well, and … Continue reading Pics from the other day
I lost some of my happy, positive energy today. I still have so much to be thankful for though. Maybe even more than usual. The girls have been completely precious and so many people have reached out in extraordinary ways. I can’t write about them just yet. I guess it’s just becoming more real now. I still know God can heal me, but I was … Continue reading Day 11
One more thing. I had Susan send out an email on my behalf and that included a request to not call us because we were getting overwhelmed. But as I was writing the last page I started thinking there might be a person or people who read this sooner or later who need support too. It would be an amazing opportunity to be able to … Continue reading Contacts
Psalm 89:1-2 “I will always sing about the Lord’s love; I will tell of His loyalty from now on. i will say, ‘your love continues forever, your loyalty goes on and on like the sky’.” Every second of this day is getting better, I can’t even handle it! God is so good to me. Who am I that He would comfort me and give me … Continue reading So many awesome things!
I’m learning so much about what to do if someone else I know ever goes through something like this. The biggest is that no matter how close I am or am not to the person, it’s nice to reach out in some way. I’m trying so hard to stay positive, but am really bothered that I’m positive some old friends & acquaintances know what’s up … Continue reading Learning
I might be repeating a few good things I posted on other days, but I’ve been talking, texting, and thinking so much about everything that I can’t remember where I’ve put it. This seems like a good morning to start off focusing on all the positive things going on. One really cool thing from Thanksgiving was that I had recently decided to make a list … Continue reading Good Things
Yesterday was difficult. Met with local oncologist who we really liked. Unfortunately, he didn’t say anything contrary to the bad news we were aware of. I think it was extra hard for Yaacov because I hadn’t told him about the incurable part so he didn’t find out until Dr. Rassam told him. Then we went home and Yaacov told my dad, who also hadn’t known. … Continue reading Day 7
Worst day yet. Got word it spread to lungs and 2 spots on my spine. This makes it Stage 4, which is considered incurable. Typically I would have 1-3 years, although being so young might help. I didn’t expect the spine part, so I’m sort of blown away. And honestly, I didn’t realize that it’s not curable. I thought there was a cure, it just … Continue reading Day 5
What an amazing day! It started off horribly and I had a really bad attitude. Naomi was up all night and I felt sick from the stupid fasting part of the PET Scan. I read online that I’d have to wait 30-60 minutes to let this radioactive sugar get absorbed. So I brought a list of phone calls I had to make. Sidenote: if you’re … Continue reading Day 4: Silver Lining!!!!
