The Next Step of the Journey

Tomorrow morning (Monday, April 6) we will begin the first of four cycles of chemotherapy. They are giving her Cisplatin and Etoposide. She will go Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week, have two complete week off, then start over again beginning April 27. This will go on for 4 cycles. They are giving her some other meds to offset the sickness that comes with it. There is one medicine that the pharmacy is out of though and they are trying very hard to get it in on time. Please pray that this will happen. Also, please pray that she is strong enough to tackle the chemo. We are trying to keep a positive attitude and are lining everyone up to get on board and help us fight. Since we're already fighting the reflux, we're not getting started on the right foot. God is good, God is Soverign. We are trusting His hand as we walk along the way. We are so thankful to all of those who have offered to help in so many different ways. We love you and appreciate you. While this has certainly not been easy emotionally or physically, some words to a familiar hymn come to mind:

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know Who holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives.
