It’s Saturday morning, day five after the last chemo. I am definitely stronger today with less nausea and fatigue. The Lord has spared me the more significant side effects of GI issues, mouth sores, and rashes. Those specific prayers have been answered. The visual acuity of my right eye is close to normal and I see a single image when reading, but I still see double on upward gazing. So, continue to pray for the lymphoma to go away and specifically for the double vision to resolve.
Nancy is doing well. It may be my illness or just the coming spring, but she been overcome with the drive to clear out drawers and closets and to take stuff to the Goodwill store. She is an excellent nurse with great patience with her patient.
One of the benefits of the slow-down of illness is the time to refresh memories. Your words of encouragement have certainly served that end…thanks. It has also been a good time to refresh some things memorized. Let me close with a passage that I have learned and relearned. It is from the prophet, Habakkuk 3:17-19: “Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; He makes my feet like the deer’s; He makes me tread on high places.” I think that we all do better with deer’s feet when we venture to high places.
