I too have been Praying for Stellan. I hope if you are a follower of Jennifer's blog you will also pray for her. I understand how she can be so down right now. I look at my child and thank God everyday that he is healthy. I understand totally how she is getting really down right now. I am praying for her strength to continue to believe in God that he will take care of Stellan. I have a link at the top of my blog. If you find time to click on there and read about Stellan please do and please just say a prayer for Stellan and his family. Thanks... until then..
I had to go the doctor today and I am so depressed now. I don't understand why my body hates itself so much. Why does more stuff continue to be wrong. You find out you have a life altering auto immune disease and you start treatment after treatment to get that under control and then you find out you have another virus that you will have to treat for a year. That treatment is going on now and then with all of this the side effects aren't the easiest. Well now I find out something else is wrong and it is caused by the auto immune disease. Sometimes that wants to make you give up in yourself. Sorry to ramble on and on and be down on myself when I know there are so many out there who are fighting for their lives and have children that are doing the same its just so hard to deal with setback after setback when you feel like you get one foot up the hill you get kicked back 10 steps. oh well until then....
I took my chemo treatment on Friday like always. Guess what Saturday I hurt somewhat but today on my anniversary I have felt good all day. Maybe I am getting used to the chemo side effects. I am very thankful for my husband for standing thru all this with me. I was worried about the toll it would take on my marriage but so far so good.
My doctor called today. I have been doing chemo for 5 weeks now. When all of this started the virus count in my blood was high. There was a 50/50 chance it would help... Well today when I got the call from the doctor he said the virus was undetectable. Yes in 5 weeks the virus cannot be detected. Praise God. I have been worried that I was dealing with all of the side effects of the meds and it wouldn't change a thing. Well God answered my prayers. Finally some good news. All praise to God Almighty.
