Day 6

Josh left today at 2:30 am to get across the border to go home and Becky got here at lunch. This morning was colder but at least it wasn't raining. It warmed up a bit so Becky and I went to the beach this afternoon. It was SO nice to get out of this room. I've been feeling down and a wee bit trapped.

I will say that to this point my most popular feeling is to run. Not necessarily TO anything but just away from the idea of cancer. I feel fine. Except for the lump, I'm not aware that I have cancer. Its seems that I'm going through all of this, mainly being away from my boys for no good reason. I keep having to remind myself that this is real. Cancer is real. I have cancer. I'm doing this for my children. It is all a strange sensation.

Today we started the day like normal with my injection and then starting my IV fluids that run from 7am until around 2 or 3 pm. The nurse put a clay pack on my tumor and let it dry. After that I took a shower and we changed the dressing on my catheter. Here is a pic of my catheter held in by stitches.  Please don't mind my ridiculous face.

 More beautiful pic of the beach. Loved going down there. It did a lot of good for my attitude.

Danica and her aunt catching up on emails.

Danica and I are feeling better. Not 100% but definitely on our way. yippee!
Josh made it home safely. Becky made it here safely.
For no flare ups or reactions yesterday or today.
For being able to fall asleep in my hubby's arms last night.
For sunshine!
For the wonderful staff here.
Thank you Jesus!!

Prayer requests:
God's continued healing
For time to fly by quickly so I can get home to my boys! Oh how I miss them.
