Giddy-up…Ready for Chemo #2

It’s hard to believe that 3 weeks has passed already and that I am set for my next chemo infusion tomorrow. My hair is falling out in patches so my kick ass crew cut has turned into something that more closely resembles a style from a concentration camp.  And while I’ve tried to hurry the hair loss process along with some duct tape it remains very patchy and unattractive.  My spirit has been down these past two days and I have a lot of anxiety for this next round. But, I must face it and will take the side effects as they come. One day at a time. I’ve been drinking water these last 3 weeks like I am about to face a drought and it has really helped my veins. Each blood draw has been a piece of cake…apparently I’ve lived these last few years in a constant state of dehydration. 🙂 This is a pretty quick update. I’ll let you know how it goes when I’m up to it.

Specific prayer requests:

–       Again, that they would get the IV on the first try. I’m getting spoiled now.

–       That I my anxiety would ease in remembering God’s provision and faithfulness.

Blessings,

Lynnea

  9. Lynnea, You don’t know me, but my niece, Mardee Coyle Austin told me about your blog. You see, I recently found out I have breast cancer in my left breast. You have given me much hope. I also will go to chemo tomorrow, for my first time. I will lift you up in prayer for tomorrow. Our God is bigger than all this. I couldn’t do this without him. Thank you for sharing your journey. I hope you don’t mind me riding along. Carol Hughes

    • I never mind people riding along. That’s what this is for. I’m so sorry that you now have to face this but it is truly one day at a time. Good luck with your first infusion. I will pray for you also. xoxo L

  10. Duct tape … Red Green would be proud!! Everyday – when we rise and when we retire – we pray specifically for your physical battle – that the cocktail is doing its work; for your mind, and; for your authentic spirit … and we wrap it all in love. Sharon & Glen
