Just a Note While I Continue my Blog Break

Thank you all for being so gracious to me about my blog break. Today I'll see the oncologist and hopefully get a little more information about the plan for the next several weeks. Tomorrow I'll have my sixth and final chemo. Can't wait for this three week cycle to be over so that my body can begin recovering from all this toxicity.

Here are some posts that you might enjoy while I continue my blog break.

Thank you all once again for praying for me and for being patient while I take time to rest and heal. Hopefully, I won't have to be on house arrest during this next round of chemo.

I cannot tell you what it's meant to have you dear ones with me on this journey. Knowing that you're praying, and hearing from you regularly has really helped to keep me going. Thank you for being so gracious about me not writing and replying to comments.

Be blessed and count your blessings!
Consider yourselves hugged!

Blessed and Healed

  13. I hope your chemo will kick that cancer to the curb! I know from others that it is not the most pleasant thing that ever came along, but saw good results for them. I pray the same will happen to you.

    My husband and I just finished celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary over the weekend, and then he was back to work today after being off all summer. He works for the school district as an instructional aide. I sat down at Les Scwaub Tires, getting the nail removed from my tire that we somehow picked up over the weekend. Didn't he choose a good day to go back to work? How nice they fixed it for free! Nothing like a good dose of returning to reality:)

    It was a wonderful weekend, and I put a post up about it at https://beckyathome.wordpress.com/2017/09/05/saving-money-weekly-update-and-our-35th-anniversary-september-4-2017/
    I was sadly not able to get good pictures of the whales we saw--they were spouting, and we saw that and them playing around in the water. Good times! It never gets old to me.

  14. Hi Laura, good luck from this part of England. Best wishes from me.

  15. Ah my dear friend I am so glad that chemo will be all done. How Jack and I have talked about it and prayed for you. I think of you with much love and prayers!

  16. I'm so happy that the chemo is almost behind you! I've missed your posts, but I do hope you are resting and healing. I will check out all the links you posted later today. The titles look interesting. Continuing to pray for you!!

  17. Thankful this round is ending!
    Continuing to pray for healing for you!
    Remember how far off September seemed?
    But here it is, and you are still smiling and praising Him!
    Bless you! Hugs!

  18. Good afternoon, Laura~

    Continued rayers for total healing. I'm so glad that you will soon be done.


  19. You dear. Keep well and don't worry about us. We'll be right here where you left us praying for your speedy and complete recovery. Get some rest and be kind to yourself. Big hugs.

  20. Hello My Dear Blogging Friend,

    I've been away from blogging for so long now, I did not know you have been struggling with health issues. I will lift you and your beautiful family up in prayer. You are such an inspiration for all.

    Blessings to you and hugs,

  21. I'm sorry for your continued struggles... and thankful for your attitude and trust in the Lord. May God comfort, strengthen and heal you.

  22. Enjoy your rest! It's a good thing. :-)

    Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him...
    Psalms 23:2-3 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

  23. Checking in and praying for you..
