Bridging A Difficult Week

Photo copyright: Maggie May


Once again it is time for me to have a little break from you all while chemo 4 takes its toll.
I went to oncology this morning, early and had to wait till nearly lunch time to get the results of my blood count before I could start with the drip. The white cells have picked up but my liver needs to be checked out at the doctors next week because the levels of something or other are a bit high. They say this does happen as time goes on with chemo and should right itself.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have been praying for me while I have been having treatment and I know that I am being greatly helped by prayer while I find it really hard to pray for myself (except of course to say thank you.) Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed by what is happening to me that I feel I wouldn't really know where to start.
I am so grateful for everyone who has been sending positive thoughts my way. You may never know just how much.
I hope I will feel like commenting again really soon. I wonder what this session will bring?Each one seems a bit different.

Maggie - time out, you need it when your system is processing such strong chemicals. It is hard to think of you going through this but prayers are being said for you so you are very much in our daily thoughts. All the best dear lady and may this time out give you the resources you need to get through this session on an even keel. X

Just keep on going, Maggie. One step at a time. One treatment at a time. You'll get through. You are strong. And yes, I do know what it feels like to have blogger friends sending positive support. It's very powerful.

Sending you lots and lots of positive energy, hugs, and well, how about a bunch of chocolate? That's good for everything!

Dearest Maggie- Sending you my best wishes for round 4. I will continue to pray for you, each day, you can be sure of that. Just take it one day at a time. I wish that I lived near you, too! And I thank you so much for your kind comment, at my place, and for your prayers. Blessings and hugs, Marguerite
