Wouldn't You Know

I have already received my first donation. And wouldn't you know, it would be from my friend, Patsy, who is undergoing treatment. Yesterday was her third dose of chemo. When I asked how she was feeling--right after arriving home, she wasn't too bad, but that was because she had taken Lorazepam. I told her thank goodness for "good" drugs. Right now she needs it. Last week when I spoke to her, she was in a "different place" and, frankly, it scared me. I have never known her to be so depressed and scared. She told me that the week she has chemo isn't as bad as the week that follows. That is the week she feels awful, and that is when I was speaking to her. Scared the heck out of me. Yesterday she said her MD was encouraging and so she was in better spirits.
When I asked her if I could share her story, she agreed. And she asked me to ask you all to pray for her. I assured her I would. I assured her there are legions on the other side of the veil to help her through this. So PLEASE remember her and Hollie in your prayers.
Hollie goes to the oncologist today and they will discuss the results of her MRI taken on Monday.
Last night was a short trip on the treadmill. Sid fixed the display so I could read the miles, time, calories, and distance. I only walked two miles. But it seems I can walk a mile in about 15 minutes. By my computation, that would be 20 miles in about 6 hours. I'm still very new to exercising, so I want to ease into this for a little while and build up my ability to go the distance.
