sorry it took me so long .....................

But I have been VERY sick.In have been having a very hard time.I have been in the hospital 2 times already. I have had to have 3 units of blood.I have physically about had it!
The last scan showed the cancer is shrinking,(Thank you Jesus ! )The nodule on the lymph node is shrinking and one of the nodules in my lung has shrunk by half.

I really really need your continued prayers.I am supposed to have my last treatment Monday.Oh dear LORD,I hope it is the last one.I am so tired and so weary.I hope and pray I can can get through this one.I can hardly go from the couch or bed to the bathroom without help getting there.I have been crying alot,they said it is the chemo.
It will be almost a month before I am back on here.If this chemo is like the rest,which I am sure it will be, then I will be sick for that that long.

I am at the end of the rope,I have tied a knot in it and I am hanging on for dear life !!

Beverly said...

Oh, Theresa. I am so thankful to hear from you. I have carried you in my heart and prayers every day, and I will continue.

Please keep fighting.♥♥♥

Vee said...

Theresa, Sherry sent me along and something about your story just compelled me to come. I know how tough it is right now...so very tough, but you have proven that you are made of tough stuff, too, by making it to the last chemo treatment. The Lord is no respecter of persons and if He can do for my mother what He so miraculously did, He is willing to do so for all. Praying for you and bookmarking your page so I can return.

Lord, You know Theresa's need, You know her heart, You know how much her body can stand. Please comfort her and deliver her from fear and torment of any kind. Wrap Your loving arms around her and let her know the peace that comes from being in the safest place in all the world.

I am laying in bed sick myself yet only from something minor. Still my condition allows me to hear the cry of your post. It is sometimes so hard to fight that feeling of giving up especially when things seem so bleak but still you must keep going. You must keep going. I will hold your hand in prayer. You will be blessed by our Father. You must keep going.

Cherdecor said...

Theresa, I am praying for you. Dear girl, do not give up. I know that it is hard but keep your faith in God. Just take one moment at a time. May the peace of God cover you.

Edie Marie's Attic said...

Dearest Theresa,

Thank you so much for your prayers for my knee... I feel them making my knee better today and I have the same faith that prayers being said for you are making you better and stronger as I type. Perhaps the fact that you could not have today's chemo is to give your body a break and let it gain some strength back. All is in God's hands and He knows what the best schedule is for you. You know you have my continued prayers today, tonight and through the days & nights to come. God bless you with a peaceful sleep and a better tomorrow dear one!!

Love & hugs, Sherry

My husband was diagnosed with cancer about three months ago, we have kept him pumped up with 32 ounces of organic juice a day, lots of raw organic fruits and veges, and Eissac tea every night before bed, he feels like a million bucks! I will be praying you can get your strength back, chemo is poison, you need to keep your body strong, I will be praying for you a ton, contact me if you need any more advice.

XO,and tons of prayers!!!!!!!

Edie Marie's Attic said...

Just stopping by this morning to shower you with God's peace and blessings!! We're all praying for you Theresa... when you're too tired to pray we are praying for you!!

Big hugs, Sherry

Janean said...

I'm joining the others in praying for you today and every time the Lord brings your need to my mind.

When i was going through a very hard time i prayed, "God please don't let me go. i have no more strength to hang on anymore." Sweet one, i can tell you HE held on to ME.

Gentle hugs.

Gwendolyn said...

Dear Theresa, I pray for you just now...Lord, give this dear sister in Christ all that she needs. Sustain her with your strength, for you have said that in our weakness is when you prove Yourself strong. So be to her, all that she needs; that strong tower, that refuge from her worries and concerns. Deliver her from the dread of more treatments and what the future could bring. May she dwell in perfect peace in Your presence, because she trusts in You. Encourage her heart today with something that only You and she can share. You've loved her with an everylasting love. Renew her body and spirit and we rejoice in Your good plans for her.

O, I was so glad to hear from you.
I hope this means you are feeling even better.

I have taken a few days off to get my shopping finished, things wrapped, tree up and all that. I was sick with a cold for a week and it really threw me behind.

So glad you are doing better, dear one.
