It’s Blue Chemo Day
It’s blue day! I’ve spent the weekend with my college roommates, so I am heading into this round on a high. It’s odd: from girls weekend to chemo lounge; yes, this is my real life. Our annual reunion has become a touchpoint of the year for most of us: we set goals, reflect and center in who we are as individuals. Our husbands, and now our children, give us the time and space to escape into each other. Love!
I’ll (hopefully) write more from the chemo room today, but I wanted to ask for some prayers for blue:
-Pray for my blood counts and my toe infection, that both would be in good enough shape for treatment today.
-Pray that the drugs would target the ugly and be in search-and-destroy mode in obliterating any cancer cells. Pray for protection over the healthy cells and for no allergic reactions.
-Pray for my friends in the chemo room: that they, too, would be fierce cancer-killers today.
-Pray for my family, especially my parents, as they ache for me that I have to do this at all. (And, remember family, I’ve got this. I’m a cancer-killing machine today! Go me!)
