Chemo tomorrow

Hello All,

Will you please be praying for chemo tomorrow? The nurse will be accessing my port after many weeks of not using it. If the port works, we will keep it and be able to use it for chemo. This would be ideal because chemo aggravates (causes burning pain) in arm veins and is a lot for me to manage. If the port cannot be used it will be removed soon. Removing the port makes me nervous so I would appreciate prayer over that, too. My blood work today showed that my hemoglobin (red blood cells) count was a little low, expected at this point in chemo but I would like us to pray those numbers back up where they should be. The doctor's advice was to eat spinach and red meat and to rest. I haven't been doing much of those three things so I can definitely do my part to get those numbers up. Tomorrow is cycle 5, then cycle six and a CT scan. If the scan is good then we go into "monitor Kristin" mode: remission. Please be praying for full remission and cured. I am praying for peace for me and for Shawn and the kids and our extended family. I pray cured for this body. Battling against fear seems to be happening more often lately, I think it is a combination of a lot of things. I appreciate your prayers a lot!!!! Oh ya, and allergies have hit me. I spend a few weeks each May completely down and out sick from my allergies. Please pray that the allergy meds will wrk and that this year I will be spared from allergy-sick on top of chemo!!! And I have a wicked-bad toothache. It had gone away for the last many weeks and now, after biting into a perogy, the pain is back and really bad. Upper left molar. [sad face] Thank you for praying!

  7. Hi Kristin....I came across your blog from a friend from Facebook. We used to work together at ABC restaurant years ago :-)
    I've just finished reading many of your posts and want you to know that Dan and I will be praying for you and your family. Dan used to work at ABC as well that is where we met :-)
    Your faith and positivity and humbleness is so amazing and I know that God is a God who heals. He is the same yesterday today and tomorrow and because He went to the cross to die for us He overcame all sickness and disease.
    Will pray for strength for you and total remission. What can makes us whole again nothing but the blood of Jesus. So we thank you now Jesus for Kristin`s complete healing!!!
    Blessings to you and your family xo
    Trudy and Dan Brennan
