On The Way Back

Surfacing a bit today. It's been a long few days but each day brings a bit more hope that 'normal' will return again. I'm eating lightly, taking it easy and enjoying a good book. I am thankful that this is temporary and that I am on the mend.

Our dear friend, Mr. R., continues to struggle. The chemo treatments needed to prepare him for the stem cell transplant have affected the function of his heart. Many of the tests look good but one valve struggles to function. Mrs. S. sits by, prays and waits. They need extra special strength through these days. Their faith is strong but they are weary.

  2. Glad you're feeling a bit better.

  3. Hoping you feel better soon Adrienne. Did you get the flu shot? I have for the past 10 years and have managed to skip the flu for 10 years now.



  4. Adrienne,
    Many thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I'm so sorry to hear that you've been ill. and hope you will soon be feeling better. I will keep Mr. R. in my thoughts and prayers. My father-in-law recently had a stem cell treatment for multiple myeloma, so I know what an emotional roller coaster that can be.

    Thanks again!

  5. I am sorry to hear you were not feeling well, but glad to know that you are on the mend.

  6. Adrienne,
    I continue to pray for your dear friends that the Lord will strengthen them and that the stem cell transplant will work and Mr. R. will continue to improve and get stronger...
    You are such a blessing to them and to me as I see you continue to be such a strength for them to pull from...

  7. Get well soon Adrienne. The picture on your post is one of my all time favorites. I even have it framed.
