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

been kinda crazy around the last few days there have been outdoor soccer games, indoor field hockey games, soccer practices, church, hospital appointments, tam working the weekend, plus a 3-D puzzle that the family is obsessed with finishing.

tim had a day hospital appt on sunday and i think he hit the jackpot with needing the most things that day. they gave him IV potassium and his regular liter of IV fluids. they gave him a platelet transfusion and they gave him a blood transfusion which is always 2 units of red cells. it was a long sunday afternoon.

i am leaving now for work and he is coming down a bit later for another day hospital appt to check out his levels. this is the post-chemo week that is the most intense. he has no white cells to fight off infections. he has no energy because of the low red cell blood counts. he bleeds alot because of the low platelets. his immunosuppressed state has his mouth and throat all full of ulcers and he says on a pain scale of 1-10 it is about a 15 to swallow anything. (thank goodness for morphine). keep him in your prayers this is going to be a long one.

well...gotta get to work.

have a great day.

thanks for checking in.

tim and tammy
