Psalm 118:17

I will not die, but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.

Chemo continues to be a real challenge for me. Friday was another rough day. I am still getting pretty sick and vomiting. Tomorrow I get it again and I'm having a hard time keeping my head up. Knowing what's coming is not fun. I did however have a pretty descent day today. We took the kids to the Dallas aquarium because it is inside and it is really hot out here. I had to keep sitting down and resting, but enjoyed being with my kids and husband. We came back to the hotel and after taking a rest, I went in the pool with them. So, today was a good day, but thinking about tomorrow is constantly in the back of my head. I keep trying to tell myself that maybe it won't be as bad tomorrow, but I'm having a hard time convincing myself. My kids have been such good sports and I'm so thankful to have Shane here to help. When I'm sick, Shane takes them to the pool and plays with them. They are perfectly content with the pool. It makes me mad though, because I want to be having fun with them. So, again, I know I need to think positively, but struggling with that right now. Keep praying!


  1. Kelly...I know that multitudes of prayer warriors are lifting you up today as you head for another chemo treatment. Our minds are easy targets and bringing our thoughts under control is one of the biggest battles that we fight. I will pray specifically for that today.
    In Psalm 13, David cries out to God from the absolute depths of despair, but in the final verses he concludes...
    "But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
    I will sing to the LORD,
    for he has been good to me."
    Sing Kelly....sing!!!!

  2. I continue to pray and will continue until you are out of this wilderness season. Minute by minute will be how you win this one, constantly reminding yourself of who is in control of this situation and not giving in to the one that seeks to destroy our lives. The flesh is weak but He is so much stronger- Thank you God! (Much easier for someone to say that isn't going through Chemo- I know!) I love you and will continue to cry out to God on your behalf!

  3. I am so happy your family is there with you.I think of you every day,and pray for you. Hang in there.Remember God is always with you and will never leave you alone.

  4. I think I can, I think I can...I KNOW I can, I know I can...the little engine that could. Keep repeating it until you start to believe it. We love you, Kelly....and we really have no idea what you're going through....but I do believe in your ability to overcome the fear of tomorrow. I hope and pray that things went better today. I also hope that new therapy will start to help. Love you so much!!
