Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

the day after...

today was a day hospital trip...tims blood pressure was extremely low so they made him stay for some fluids and then gave him his neulasta shot (this is the shot that will help him to recover from the chemo damage). his low blood pressure makes him a bit woozy too. a little unstable on his feet at times.

he is struggling this time round from what we call "chemo-brain". sometimes the chemo will seem to go right to his head...he gets really gittery and restless and paces and can't seem to relax. when he does sleep he has bad dreams and although we know this will pass in a few days it is still hard to endure.

he can't seem to focus on anything like reading or tv...these are really rough days for him.

he is losing his taste for foods and isn't able to drink much...pray that these days pass quickly.

we are back to hospital on wednesday to check his counts and see if he needs anything. it seems as though each time he has to go thru another round of chemo the side effects get worse. pray this is the last one he will need. we don't want to have to go thru another one like this one.

not really much good to report although megan and i are seeing signs of improvement from our colds and kelsey seems to be back to her old self.

hope you all had a great easter weekend.

thanks for checking in.

Tammy, Just catching up on everything that's been happening in the Dewalt home after a long Easter break. We pray for all of you every day, but after reading your blog we can fine tune those prayers! It's amazing how we take these cars, washing machines, etc. for granted until we have to go glad it will arrive today! with love, Diane
