We had a special guest visiting from Virginia this week, Craig Figgers, one of our "military missionaries." Craig serves in the Air Force, and he and his wife, Trish, attended Pilgrim Bible Church. He was able to accompany us to the cancer center today before Susan drove him to the airport for his flight home. It was a great visit and we appreciate the Figgers' continuing friendship across the miles and years!
Today, the blood work indicated a drop in the bilirubin level which causes jaundice. The hematocrit indicates a minor drop of one point which means it is holding its own. It would help if I could walk more but the oppressive heat precludes that for now. Add to this the fact I have to lug around the heavy TPN bag, and walking becomes quite a chore. Pray for cooler weather when I can walk in the morning or early afternoon when I'm not connected to the TPN bag.
I seem to be developing bothersome spasms in the stomach. Don't know yet what that's about, but please pray. We are encouraged by the blood work though, and for my ability to receive a full chemo infusion today. Pray the nausea won't be too bad.
