But the angel said to her,
“Do not be afraid, Mary,
you have found favor with God.
You will be with child and give birth to a son,
and you are to give him the name Jesus.
~Luke 1:30-31 (NIV)~
Please begin praying for Aubrey McMillan who will have carpal tunnel surgery on the 23rd. Later, he will have the other hand done.
It has been a very eventful morning. I’ll spare the details, but just know that Macy and I making it to Baton Rouge with our sanity is a pure miracle (I’m sure the sanity part is debatable!)
Macy has her VERY LAST chemo in her spine today. Although we still have a year and a half left of “regular chemo,” I’m glad to kick this one to the curb. This is the one that caused the neurotoxicity in her brain (the stroke-like episode,) so this is a huge weight off of our shoulders.
From now on, every 4 months she will have a lumbar puncture to check for cancer cells in her spinal fluid. I’ll take anesthesia every 4 months instead of every month. Yes indeed!
Her procedure isn’t until 1:00, and she’s been screaming (yes screaming) for food and drink since 7am. I’m by myself, and I need sweet little baby Jesus to HELP ME! PLEASE!!
Please also pray for a good wake up, because last time was nothing short of a disaster. She was very sick for hours after.
We’ll spend most of our holidays down on the bayou. No rest for the weary… Ahhhhhh! But, we anticipate a great holiday surrounded by family, friends, love, faith, and good food!
Who just ran across the parking lot, the size of two football fields, in the pouring rain, while carrying a 40 pound child knocked out from anesthesia? All while not permitted to a) run at all and b) not lift anything over 10 pounds? Yep, this girl! Is today over yet?!
