What a difference a week can make!

Last week (on my birthday at the cancer center)life as we thought we knew it seemed to come to a screeching halt, but then came today.
Dh had gone to the cancer center by himself for blood work and to have a sit down with his doctor. I took that time to pick up my journal which I had not been writing in. I tried to put into words how hopeless it all seemed and of course, as always when I stop and reflect and remember who God is and that He is in control of all things and has always brought me through the storms, I'm able to take a deep breath and stand up rejuvenated and ready for whatever news dh would give me.

Without going into detail, I can say that is is a brighter day; news was good; there is a light at the end of this tunnel called chemo therapy. It's not over, but he's over half way; we've come this far and "...yea, though we walk through the valley of the shadow...." we are just walking through it.
Thanks for stopping by and listening to me who can go up to down and back up again at the blink of any eye....or the whisper of a prayer.
Nancy, you asked how you could have missed about my blogs....you probably just thought I wasn't posting...I wasn't for a bit , then under a new blog name. Easy to understand. Just glad you signed on again.
I'm glad for all of you here!
God bless each of you in whatever is happening in your corner of the world.

Hi Babs! I'm so glad you were able to find time to reflect and to journal again. I find writing so therapeutic. I can understand the ups and downs of chemo, each session can be totally different in the way it effects the body. Both mentally and physically. And I honestly believe it can be hardest on the caregiver. So, don't be too hard on yourself, it's easy to focus so intently on what is happening that you can forget to give it to our Lord who is just waiting to shoulder your burden. I'm glad the news was good this week, and that you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully in the not too distant future, this will just be a blip on the radar and you'll marvel at the way God has carried you through. I'm praying for you guys! *Hugs*
