I have some prayer requests for my family.
1. My Mom has been struggling with her health for a few years now due to a heart attack. She's had a few more issues with her heart recently. Her doctor has put her on some medication to help but it will take about 2 weeks before it will do anything. Please pray that this medication will help her. Pray for strength and comfort and that she will continue to feel God's unfailing love.
2. Tom has sciatica and is in a lot of pain. Pray that this will resolve quickly and that Tom will be back to health soon! It's tough on the kids as now they have two parents who aren't able to fully give themselves energy wise. We took them to Italian Festival last night (a very fun tradition for us) and we had to laugh at our family as we hobbled along... I was moving slowly because of the chemo I just had, Tom was moving slowly and awkwardly because of his back and Ryan was way overtired and cranky because of the busy day he had had.
3. My blood counts were borderline for this last round of chemo on Thursday. They were too low on Wednesday but I was re-tested on Thursday and they were good enough to get the chemo that day as scheduled. Pray that my counts continue to be acceptable so that I can receive the chemotherapy as scheduled. I go back in again next Thursday so I really need the counts to be up again. I'm going to be extremely good with my diet and supplements this week in the hopes that it will help.
