Status Quo

This week mom has been immune suppressed and is a champ!  She has been so strong and she is the same “Lu,” directing orders to get stuff done from her hospital room (such as new floor mats for her car, thank you notes, etc.)!  We are so proud of her!!  She has suffered some side effects from her chemotherapy including a little nausea, diarrhea, low grade fevers, and loss of appetite, which the hospital staff has been AMAZING at regulating!  She is currently half way through her hospital stay🤞🏻.  Our hope is that she will be headed home on November 21, 2019, but the doctors are only able to plan two days in advance.  They are beginning to boost her white blood cell count/production, which should rise quickly.  This is one step closer to us bringing her back home to fight this nasty beast from the comfort of her own home.  Please continue to pray for strength, health, and a positive attitude!  Mom has continued to be extremely positive and walk through this with such grace!  Thank you for all your prayers, our Almighty God continues to show-up EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!  Mom feels amazing because you all continue to lift her in prayer, for that we are forever grateful!  

“He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress.  I will not be shaken.” Psalm 62:6
