Robyn took me to chemo yesterday which went well. I saw the doctor first and she finally gave me some good news. She could hear breath sounds in all lobes of my lungs. I looked at Robyn and we both began to cry. I was so afraid that she was going to tell me that my left lung was now bad. She thinks the constant coughing is from the tube irritating my lung the way it is rubbing against it. I was just happy it wasn't fluid making me cough. Finally some good news to lift my spirits. Each day I get a little more energy and am feeling better. Today I actually went on an outing. My sisters, mom, aunts, gramma, cousins and their kids all met at the little water park in gardens and Jamie picked me up and took me. I went with my oxygen, which I hated, but it was better than sitting at home. As soon as I got in the car, Parker said, mom your going too. He was so excited that I was going to be with them. They have constantly been doing things away from the house to let me recuperate. He's not used to me going anywhere with them lately. Both my kids kept kissing me the whole time I was there and just so happy. It made my day! I love my two precious children so much and have missed such valuabale time with them lately. That's what I hate so much about this disease. I am completely worn out tonight, but it was so worth it to be with my kids today. I just keep praying for strength each day and that I can get off this oxygen soon. The home health nurse has been coming every other day and draining my lung. Surprisingly, there has not been much fluid! Praise the Lord! Hopefully my lung is healing and is not going to produce much fluid anymore. Thank you for continued prayers and all your words of encouragement! I value all of you as you walk with me through this journey.
