day 2

They didn't mention the dose yesterday was half strength. Today was full strength, but the results weren't horrible. Only a few hours today I felt like a train ran over my head, but I was able to plant some bulbs, clean up the yard, move around with ease, etc. I know it could get worse, but the fact that I haven't had a fever yet is awesome.

I'm just really tired, which might have more to do with the fact that I was up till 3 am listening to my irregular heart beat, ready to call 911 in case I should go into V-Tach. Suddenly I'm not so offended that my nurse practitioner wrote me a Rx for ativan (an anti psychotic drug). I do have issues, and maybe should have taken one last night.

Sonja said a prayer with Sam tonight "Please bless mommy that she wont be sick today, or tomorrow, or the day after that, or the day after that, or the day after that, or the day after that, or the day after that, all the way up until I'm a daddy."

I guess I mentioned once that after treatments are done I would by the boys a dog. I didn't think Luke would catch on, but in all of his prayers after someone prompts "and please bless mom that she can get better" he repeats it and adds "so then we get a doggy."

You are being SO strong and I can only imagine how hard this really is. YOU have a great attitude and your a strength to your boys by doing so.. I love the sweet little prayer- it just goes to show just how much your kids LOVE you... Do not overexert yourself! It sounds like there is plenty of help waiting to be done if need be. I admire your strength so much and have a lot of respect for you and for Josh.

I'm glad to hear things are going fairly well. You are amazingly strong. Don't try to do it all alone though. You could wear yourself out and then it could become harder. Love ya.

This is all good news! Actually, I don't think fever is one of the s/a's..Brent doesn't run one. He does feel like a train ran over him, but he has never been able to do ANY of the things you mention...so if this is as sick as you get...WOW, game on girl!!
You're not doing Riba too, are you? Maybe it's that combo that's so nasty. (You're gonna regret that dog promise!!!)
as always--you're in our prayers.
Love, Buffy

I love children's prayers. They are so honest and I think the most answered, so here's hoping that you don't get too sick. We love you guys!
