I have heard of horse whisperers.........even dog whisperers......but a vein whisperer was a new one. I just love how God is in the midst of our circumstances. He even provides the right nurse in a difficult situation.
Last Friday I saw the oncologist and because of how weak I was and the low white count, he did a few cultures. Blood and urine....and an x-ray. The urine showed two different bacteria growing so thus the IV antibiotics. I was taken off the treatment pills, but given the monthly injections. We have seen a bit of improvement with my energy. I am now able to dress daily and get my own breakfast. It was that bad. I still nap twice a day and sleep 10 hrs at night, but then again, I am trying to heal from a surgery that went wrong, two bacterial infections, and I am fighting cancer, Off the Verzenio I can taste food again, am not nauseated, and a bit stronger. I expect I will go back on tomorrow, but we will see what the doctor has to say.
We feel like our cancer center here is a real gift. The staff is helpful, kind, and very efficient. Dr. Singh is treating my whole body which we feel is so important. Yeah. In the midst of this awful journey, we are blessed.
A song that has come to my attention is giving us hope and courage for each day. It is sometimes an effort and a sacrifice of praise we raise, but there is always a blessing to be found. Always a reason to give praise. We are raising a song of praise for a "vein whisperer" today! The song was created when a young boy at Bethel Church in Redding CA was fighting for his life a year ago. I remember it well. A powerful miracle saved this young child and the world rejoiced as the enemy was defeated!
I hope you enjoy it.............
