I know we have been posting that he is feeling okay, and he does most of the time; but there is some help we might need...prayers and people.
It is hard to tell for sure, but I think prayers are needed for a positive attitude and energy...not just for him, but for all of us. He is on high doses of some medications that are causing occasional side effects which have kept us trapped inside. I think that coupled with the possible magnitude of the situation and with the delay in getting to Houston is making it easy to slip toward the negative. I don't think we are negative right now...it is just not very positive-feeling...kind of blah or the negative side of blah. Riding in a car has caused him headaches recently, so we are also concerned about the drive to Houston. The plan is to do it all in one day and get it over with.
I think we may also need some time with people where we just talk about non-cancer stuff. All of us are feeling a little reclusive because it is emotionally hard to revisit the situation with so many well-meaning people, and he gets a headache when there is too much commotion around him. In addition, we tend to dwell on cancer issues more than maybe we should. I hope all of us can get out for worship tomorrow because I think we need it before we go to Houston.
If we are able to get out tomorrow, please do visit with us, but try to minimize the talk of cancer issues, and not everyone at once please.
