Hey My Friends:

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated. I’m sorry.  It’s been a very hard few weeks.

I received my second dose of the “harsh” chemo on Thursday.  We barely made it up the driveway before I started to 馃ぎ, despite the anti-nausea meds.  Shortly after that, my stomach went haywire in the other direction.  I stopped 馃ぎ yesterday, although the nausea is still there.  Miserable!  Still have major issues with the stomach in the other direction.  I’m trying to drink as much as I can, but water has been the only thing that will stay down.  And I ate 5 crackers last night. Hoping it will run it’s course soon.  I don’t know if my refusal to take the steroids this time had any bearing on the bad reaction.

Steve has been so good in taking care of me.  I don’t have much recollection of Thursday afternoon through Saturday morning. I know he spent much of the time washing bed linens......yes, it’s been that bad. If you dabble in the stock market, Depends is a sure bet.  Mr. Lala, Steve’s boss, has been so understanding.  For that, I will forever be grateful.

So, I ask you again for your prayers. I know this is all a part of God’s plan, but I so desperately need some relief.  I’m praying fervently for that.

Thank you for allowing me to vent. I love y’all!

    I hurt for you, Bridge. No one should have to bear this suffering, especially not you, my dear, precious, kind, loving Christian friend. God knows we do not understand. I will continue to pray to Him that this horrible pain and suffering stops, so you can be healthy and well. I love you to the moon and back. 💗💗💗

    I tried to thank you individually, but couldn鈥檛 get the posts to post. Plus, texting or typing is still giving me 鈥渧ertigo-like鈥 symptoms. Praying so hard for an early bedtime (like now!) and a full night鈥檚 sleep. I鈥檓 worn out a as weak as a newborn kitten. Thank you all so much for thinking of me and praying for me. I鈥檝e always had a difficult time praying for myself (as did Mama), so I really appreciate your prayers. It鈥檚 funny how only a few people comment on these types of posts, journals, etc. it means the world to me. When Mama died I felt like I had lost my staunchest prayer warrior and I was lost and afraid. But, once I go through her birthday in January, I somehow turned the corner. Maybe it鈥檚 because we have found new areas in the bones. I also know to thank God every day that I鈥檓 still alive. I鈥檓 not afraid to die (we鈥檒l not completely) but it鈥檚 the suffering through the pain that frightens me...and I am afraid to some extent. I look to our Lord during those times for solace. I seem some better this evening. Maybe I鈥檒l be much better after a good night鈥檚 sleep. I didn鈥檛 intend to write another book. I truly just wanted to say thank you and I love you.
