OK, first dose of chemo is now behind me!

After a bit of a mini-crisis over getting my port-a-cath placed this am, Wake Med came through for me! - I got the port and was back in Cary in time to receive my first dose of chemotherapy.  Kevin was, of coarse, was with me throughout.

I have a wonderful, skilled & compassionate chemo nurse named Beth. 

I made it through the two chemo drugs with flying colors and went home and celebrated with a some chocolate chip cookies and a piece of cheese pizza... talk about answered prayers!! 

"My heart may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever!"
Psalm 73:26

 I will likely feel progressively worse over the next couple of days but I feel encouraged. I have the port placement and first dose of chemo behind me and the countdown is on!

I continue to cherish and nurture God's love for me... I feel I am getting an even greater understanding of how your faith needs to grow and mature - and how this is a process- - baby steps!   Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers and support.

I love you all!
