July 18, 2010

Kahlil Gibran once said, “A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?” This statement has been proven time and time again for us in the past couple of months. Thank you to those of you who continue to read this blog and for playing such a CRUCIAL role in mom’s journey through cancer.
This weekend has been rough but we knew it would be. After weeks and weeks toxins continually pushed in to mom’s system her body is starting to react. Her body has been assaulted by IV toxins, radiation waves, and countless pills.
She is sleeping a lot which is great because it helps with the pain. Her neck is starting to peel and blister a little bit but it is still manageable at this point. Her stomach is taking most of the hits this weekend but we’re trying to get her over that hurdle.
This entry is short but also reflective of the status of the household. Dad is resting, mom is resting, and I’m going to go take a nap. We just wanted to post for you that all is going as scheduled at this point. Mom is in a lot of pain and the tears come pretty freely at times. Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support. It means a great deal to all of us.
