July 29, 2009

Not much to tell today. I had both test. Delaney set it up so that I could have both back to back which was nice to go ahead and get them out of the way. Lots of calls, facebook post, emails and blog comments that I continue to be encouraged by.

My arm is black and blue from the surgery where they put in the port a cath yesterday but there is no pain. I still have the pain in my chest but the pain medicine makes it manageable. I have no dignity left after the ultrasound today but hey God hates pride anyway.

Overall it was a good and prosperous day. Tomorrow I go to the medical mall for the PET scan in the morning and then to the oncologist for chemo school. I guess I will have something to say tomorrow about what I am to expect during the treatments.

I have received word of so many different people and groups of people praying for me that I am probably much better off than before I got sick. What an encouragement to know that so many people who love God and are loved by God are pleading with him on my behalf. I am confident that He is working in this and that ultimately he will do what brings honor to him and what is best for his people!
