It was a rough night.
For some reason I developed a fever (102). I then ate a cup of ice and promptly fell asleep.
I slept through:
- a bedside X-ray
- two blood draws for a smear comparison
- blood pressure checks
- temperature checks
- an entire bag of IV antiobotic
- sweating, lots of sweating (yuck)
I awoke to Mike asking,
"Is this 'setback' going to delay Patti's treatment?"
He got a chuckle and a resounding, "No."
Chemo begins today.
I had a beautiful day yesterday ... Right up until 15 minutes after this picture was taken.
And the Calvary arrives today - my brother and his wife. When my First Mike was diagnosed and things were looking bad, my brother and his wife moved up from Atlanta to help. So, it's good, and bad that they are coming.
I need your prayers, please. My kids are terrified. Mike is terrified. I am terrified.
So, today, I will leave you with this ...
You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
