- Peace for Shawn and I, for Kyle and Miranda and Braden and Connor, for our parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and inner circle friends watching and hurting as we go through this
- that God would keep soft our children's hearts toward Him through all the emotions of this hard journey
- strength and stamina; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
- that the cancer shrinks to gone, gone, gone!
- gentle side effects to this second round of chemo

- anything else you feel God puts on your heart

This afternoon

Hot and cold
And hot and cold
And hot and cold
Hokey Dinah!

Taking the big meds today to try and stay less low than last round. I was out with K this morning and then did errands as Shawn's passenger. Came home, slept hard, ate some cookies, was able to drive Shawn to pick up the truck. Just so hot/cold. Oi. My oncologist is just waiting for me to slip into menopause, apparently a chemo treat. Yay. Um, no thanks!

Not much appetite today, my mouth is sort of weird, no taste buds, can't really feel my mouth. This is somewhat typical of the first day but not usually day four I don't think. Honestly, it gets hard to remember all the things that have happened. Just yesterday I realized that this body just had major surgery only four and a half months ago. Wow. Really??? Amazing.

Gotta cut my body some slack, she's doing a good job and been through a lot!


  1. Don't know how you manage it all Kristin....the appointments, the meds, the side effects, the trying to keep life 'normal' for your kids. Hope you feel the prayer covering you daily and stay encouraged knowing you are loved and prayed for by so many. Praying that God will carry you through this with grace, courage and victory!!!! Hugs :)

  2. Amen Aretha!
    Praying Grace, Courage and Victory for you as well Kristin!
