Fighting the Flu

I caught myself a little bug this weekend and I've been fighting to get back to normal since Sunday. In church on Sunday morning our quartet lead Worship and did special music in our 8:00 a.m. service. I was feeling a bit tired but not really that bad until right before we sang in our 10:30 a.m. service. During Sunday school I kept getting colder and colder. By the time it was over my stomach was very upset and I was very chilled. I thought it was just nerves because I had a little solo in our quartet piece we did. By the time I got home from church on Sunday my whole body hurt. I slept from 12:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Sunday night just to return to bed at 10:00 p.m. I felt a little bit better on Monday but I was still not feeling right. I slept until I had to go to work at 11:00 a.m. Today was a lot better but I was still very tired out. I just thought I'd better sleep as much as I could so I could get over this. My husband wasn't feeling well on Monday night. He had the same systems I had on Sunday and John came down with it this morning. (Mom don't worry, I'm feeling a lot better tonight)

It is taking me a bit longer to get over things these days with the Chemo and all but I did get over it. Please pray for me as I go into my third taxol treatment on Friday. I'm really not enjoy having Chemo every week.

God is still carrying me through all of this.

I know Our God is carrying you precious daughter!
Yet if you are not better in a few days call Please!
I Love you and I do get concerned.

I Love Y0U!

Hey Mom,

I'm feeling better today. I took a two hour nap after dinner last night and I slept until 8:30 this morning. I'm getting lazy in my old age. I do feel a lot better.

Thanks for praying for me,


Now go to the lake and enjoy your weekend. My nextel is still not working. I guess I'm going to have to break down and buy a new phone.

It's funny that you mentioned this, because I commented to Brian after that service that anyone who doesn't know you would have no idea that you're going through chemo right now. You look so healthy and happy.

I also was moved by all the music that morning. Your solo part seemed so appropriate - truly from your heart. "Be Still my Soul" has been a favorite of mine for many years. Singing it this week brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for your ministry!
