Another challenging week

I did not get my chemo treatment again this week. When I went for treatment, doctor informed me that my liver functions were high. He said it might be a fluke but didnt' want to take the chance so they ran another blood test. Doctor called me late Friday night to tell me the results and that he had no idea what is causing this problem. He said my liver functions are 5x highter than they should be. I have to go back on Monday for more tests and depending on results, I may have to go back into the hospital.

The good news is that I have a break from chemo for a few weeks. The bad news is that the cancer may spread faster. I am also going through lots of pain with shingles on my backside.

I have not let my husband and daughters know yet because I did not want to ruin my daughter's 40th birthday bash last night in Georgia. My hubby will be home today from Georgia and I will have to tell him the latest news and then call our daughters. Please pray they not worry to much about the news.

Good news is that since I will not have to schedule chemo treatments, my hubby and I can go on our annual trip to El Paso, Ruidoso, and Alburquerque the week of the 23rd to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary. Yeah!!!!!!

I know God is still in control and not surprised by what I am going through. Why He chooses to allow me to go through this I don't know but my prayer is that I honor and glorify Him though all this.

I am blessed with the Bible studies I am taking on Mondays and Tuesdays and love the time together in His Word and with my sisters in Christ. They continue to bring me encouragement and support.

Well, I guess that is all for now, I will blog later with any updates.

Have a very blessed day.
