Recovery is going great!

God is so good to me.  My body is healing and I feel much better. The doctors said they want to begin my 4th round of chemo (a short round) today or tomorrow morning at the latest.  That's ok with me...lets get rid of the rest of these cancer cells!!!!

Please pray for my continued healing and protection for my vital organs as they do the chemo this weekend.  Please pray I won't have nausea...that wouldn't be good considering my surgery.  Anyway...thank you again...our awesome and powerful God is at work...blessing to all.

Thankful for the healing God is giving

Another day of rest and recovery.  Today looks much the same but we hope to get our room on the 9th floor today.  Hooray!   Once I'm there it means I will be able to have my brothers and sister spend the night with us!!  The doctors took the IV off and that is great!  I am still taking medication for the pain but I am moving around much better, but not close to "normal" yet!  I may begin chemo as early as Friday but most likely will be Monday...10 days from my surgery.  This will give my lungs even more healing time.  Pray God continues mending my body stat (do you like my hospital term??) and my lungs would clear up quickly.

Mommy and daddy are doing just fine!!  Please continue to pray for them as well and pray everyone stays well.

Something different??? Nooo..more rest and recovery

I am tired today.  Last night the nurses came into my room alot to check on me.  The drain tube that you can see in the photo of mommy and came out last night.  They tried to put it back in (that's a story for another day) with no success.  The doctors are keeping a close eye on me due to that and I may need to get it put back in today.  I am still in quite a bit of pain.  Pray for my body to heal quickly, for the pain to ease up and comfort!  My heart rate is down again today (hooray) and no fever (double hooray!!)  Also, pray for me to have courage if they need to put the drain tube back in...I don't like it but if it is necessary...I want it!  Thank you!

Relaxing and recovering

Yes I am still in R&R mode. My fever broke today and things are looking up.  I still have trouble with the breathing exercise...(it just hurts!!)...but...I do it anyway!  Mommy and daddy are very proud of me!!  I am very proud of mommy and daddy!!  They are the BEST!!!!

Please continue to pray for us.  Pray my pain would decrease, the swelling in my abdomen would go down and the infection would go away.  Pray my lungs would clear up and I would have an easier time with the breathing exercise!

Thank you!!

Well I am still in the process of recovering.  The doctors tell mommy and daddy that it can take up to 3-10 days.  The doctors feel one of my lungs is starting to collapse, so please pray.  They got me up a few times today to sit up which will help me and make me take deeper breaths which will push the air out.  They even brought bubbles in for me to blow... but they weren't fooling me!!!  :)    Maybe tomorrow I will feel more up to it.  I really don't feel like talking much, but I do like holding mommy and daddy's hand.

Please pray for mommy and daddy, they don't like to see me like this.  But God will heal me !  He continues to work in me.  I will be back playing princess with my brother Kyle.. being my prince in no time!!!
Please continue to pray for the infection in my body to be healed, the unwanted air to move out of me, and for my body to continue to recover!
