What a busy day! I had a hot date with my love, that included chemo, lunch and wig shopping. Don’t be jealous. It started off with my second shot of poison. (That’s what I like to call the chemo.) I only was given Taxol today and was spared the Carboplatin. I’m hoping the side effects won’t be as bad as last week. First three days, I was doing great and felt like chemo wasn’t so bad; however, when I woke up on Saturday, every part of my body ached. I felt like I was getting the flu. I finally felt myself by Tuesday. So, again, I’m hoping it is better this week with only one chemo drug.
I am going to love these quiet times I have with Jonathan on our weekly “toxic” dates. Since having Levi, alone time isn’t always easy to come by. A marriage needs to have that time, to be able to connect and share your thoughts and concerns with one another. Having a marriage that is rooted in love, trust and God, has been the key for us. Our marriage has experienced heartaches, pain and disappointments, but every time, we never allowed that to tear us apart. We clung to each other and God to get us through those tough times. We never went outside the marriage to our family and friends, we went to each other. I’m not saying you can’t talk to others about your situations, but make sure your are clinging to each other first. It will make for a very strong marriage that will last when trials come. Hebrews 13:4 says, Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. Give honor to your marriage means to protect it and hold it as highly valuable. God gave us marriage as a blessing and we need to protect that blessing even when trials come our way.
After chemo we had lunch to help soak up the Benadryl that seems to last so long in me. Then, went to the American Cancer Society to get a wig. I must say, when I got there, I was pretty disappointed and thought I was not going to find something. After trying on about a dozen, I finally was able to find a wig I could make work. I am trying to have a good attitude about losing my hair, because lets face it, there is nothing that can be done. But it does sadden me at times. I will dedicate an entire blog just on wigs. You don’t want to miss the pics. They are hilarious! I will leave you with a sneak peek…
Because you just need to when trying on wigs
