I'm Trying to Stay Positive

I've put off writing this post for a while, hoping I'd have better news to share. But the longer I wait, the harder it is to write, so I may as well get it done and over.

This past week has not been a good one for Julie. She had what we hope was her final chemo treatment on the 10th. That was actually two treatments more than we were intially told. They switched the regimen from every 10 days to every Thursday, and the higher frequency gave her less time to recoup before the next treatment. Consequently, she's lost more weight and is hovering right around 100 pounds--not near enough for a woman 5 feet 7 inches tall!

She doesn't have the strength to climb the stairs anymore, so I've fixed up the guest room on the main floor for her. Her mom comes over everyday while I'm at work, and will stay with her when I'm out of town next week.

I've tried to help Julz start planning the wedding, but she says it takes more energy to think than she has right now. She's lobbying to wait until her hair is at least three inches long again, which will be a while, but I keep telling her that we have to decide a few things, and soon. Like the date, the place, the time--just a few details! All she has said is that she wants it to be just family, but that's still over 100 people!

Anyway, keep holding good thoughts for Julz, because she needs all that can get.

I've put you both on the watch list... mainly to remind me to pray daily for you...both... If you don't mind I'd like to ask my mom's church to pray for the both of you as well. May the love you share for each other be fulfilled completely

We have a good friend in our church that had only 6 weeks to live with brain cancer. Treatments have concluded. That was six years ago. They gave her no hope because the power of prayer isn't in the medical texts. Another friend in same church had a failing heart after chemo for a long time. She was given three months five years ago. There is great hope. Hang in there.

Much prayer.....much power!

If she is worried about her hair being too short, you could always just shave yours off.

Best wishes to you both.

I wished that I knew the two of you, but I don't, you sound down and out and I can understand why. Let me just say upfront that you will be in my prayers and not forgotten. Forgiven yes, forgotton no. Anyway, the only thing I can tell you is to live life to the fullest and enjoy the rest of your life. I know my heart goes out to you and the family, you see I have been where you are at and it's not good. I lost both my parents to cancer and it's a hard road to travel. Put your faith in GOD and keep the prayers going her way. I hope the best for all the family that is involved. My heart and prayers goes out to all of you in this matter. Sorry to hear this but, GOD BE WITH ALL OF YOU IN THIS!!!
