I am officially in the hospital, it was a little tough, but all your prayers, and those quick breath prayers, "God give me strength" does wonders.
Shini, my nurse, started early, 4 a.m. She hooked one of my three lumen's to Busulfan for a 45 minute trial run to see how my system would metabolize the chemo. Two phlebotomist drew blood; one out of the central line on my left side, and one out of the peripheral line on my right side. Over the course of today I will get my blood drawn at least 10 times. God has blessed me with caring nurses, and staff to take care of me.
After the procedure was over, I was reading my "comfort cards*". I also have the note cards, Beth Moore instructed us to make during our bible study of Ester, last fall. Number 5 spoke to me "It's tough being a women...in the tight fist of fear.....Remember you're in something much tighter, 'See I have engraved you (Debi, and every Christ follower) on the palms of my Hands.'" Isaiah 49:16 PTL, what mighty hands those must be!!!
To everyone that will meeting at Bible Study in the morning, I will miss you and I will be praying for God to bring anew His word. Dea thank you for all you do facilitating the group. I will be there in the fall.
*comfort cards are index cards that I have written comfort scriptures on, and put my name on them to personalize them.
