Sunday, March 1, 2009: Round 3, Dose 2

Just a quick update tonight. Kristi is getting some last minute cleaning done before chemo tomorrow. She knows that for the next few days she will be quite tired and probably a bit nauseous so she wants to get some organizing done. She asked me to give a quick update for her. Not much to say really - just getting ready for another chemo day. Our friend Janna is going to accompany Kristi tomorrow. She is looking forward to that time with Janna. That's one good thing about chemo - it forces Kristi to slow down and she has no choice but to sit down and relax. So she gets a day of guilt-free "quiet time". That's the "glass half-full" attitude toward chemo. We're looking forward to another busy week of school and I go back to work tomorrow after having a week off. It was nice just hanging around the house for a week. I worked on perfecting the art of doing nothing. I have to say I became pretty good at it. :)

I'll leave you with this thought from the apostle Paul: "but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
