Chemo day 1

We gave Abby her first dose of Temodar last night. She did get sick once, but is feeling fine today. She is pretty tired and she's fighting off a cold. Other than that she seems do be doing pretty well. We will give the chemo for 5 days and then have 21 days off. We were told that her blood counts will drop but nothing like what we saw before. She should not become neutropenic.

Abby did get to swim this past weekend and had a wonderful time. She also stretches all the way out in her bath, smiles at me and says, "I like not having my line".

Please pray for us as we decide how to use each day. We so want to be where God wants us to be and allow Him to use us in whatever way He wishes. Abby has been amazing me with her peace. She was treated (by C.R.'s sister, Adrianne) to another manicure this past Saturday. She was chatting with her manicurist about how she had cancer and her tumors were going to keep growing until she went to be with Jesus. She also told me today that she announced the same thing to her dance class last night. God has certainly heard all our prayers asking for peace.

Speaking of prayers, we want to invite everyone who lives in the valley to a night of praise and worship next Wednesday, August 17 from 7-9 pm. It will be held at Faith Church of the Valley (2125 E. Chandler Blvd, Chandler AZ 85225). It's on the SE corner of Cooper and Chandler Blvd. We want to praise and worship God for all He has done and pray for Abby.
