Chemo witch

Hokey Dinah but I am a total b@$ch this morning. I am scared. This last week was really hard. I can't stand up straight today without feeling like my chest will implode, I have been awake since 4am. I am shakey and nervous and ugly. Mean ugly. That makes me feel sad and ashamed.


  1. Extra prayers being sent up for you today. And your family! ;)

  2. praying for you...lady who met you in the mall at Christmas

  3. Praying for you as you push through. You can do this Kris!
    Love you tons!!!

  4. Lord you are with Kristin in the joyous times and the ugly times too. Flood her with your peace. Relax her mind. Give her patience. Relieve her pain. I ask for all these things in Jesus' powerful name. Amen.

  5. I'm so sorry Kristin.
    Lord, I know that you with Kristen and her family right now even if they can't always feel your presence. Thank you for being so gracious even when we feel like the fear and and frustration shows on us. Father, I ask that you would with your mighty healing hand touch Kristen and bring healing to her chest, shoulder and all parts of her body that have been affected by cancer. I pray for peace and strength as she undergoes tests to see where the problem is coming from. I ask that you would give the doctors wisdom as they make decisions in her treatment. Lord, I ask that you would bless her parents, sisters, and especially the children that celebrate each and every victory and long for good news every day.
    In your precious name,

  6. Praying you will feel the Lord holding your hand today and the prayers of others.

  7. There is no need to feel ashamed. Shame is such a negative and useless emotion. Your body has gone through so much in the past 12 weeks. As a friend would say to me, let go and let God.

    Every day will be different. Take them as they come. It's easy for me to say to hold on to the good when you feel low, but I cannot contemplate how you are feeling. I think it's pretty normal to be cranky when one is in pain. I know it's hard to turn off the analytical brain, but it can be a barrier. More healing, warm thoughts are on their way. Looking at the comments, there are lots of people pulling for you, just wanting the pain, discomfort, whatever negative things gone, replacing the negative with the positive.

    I was so happy to read the posting that the last lung Xray was clear. There was great rejoicing and happiness in the land, plus big smiles.

  8. When I wake up during the night, my first thoughts are of you. When you don't know how to pray anymore, rest in the prayers of others.
