I am halfway!! There are fifteen weeks left of intense cancer treatment. After that, I will have to take oral chemo for a year and a half, so I will be visiting Children's Hospital once a month. I am also halfway through my third phase. This will all be over, God willing, in the fall of 2013.

Last week was an extremely bad week. On Thursday, my stomach felt like it had been trampled on. I didn't eat anything till about 8 o'clock at night. On Friday I felt a teeny bit better, stomach wise, but I still felt disgusting, so I was given some synthetic marijuana. I felt very discombobulated afterwards. My head was spinning and all it did was make me feel worse. Maybe next time I'll try the real stuff. :) Saturday I was much better. Thankfully. I'm gaining my strength back every day. It is hard for me to wrap my head around the thought that next week will probably be even worse. :(

Word of the Week-   discombobulated-- disconcerted or confused.


  1. Rebecca! Marijuana! :)
    Stay strong. I promise the next time I see you, you will get Herbert. He awaits you patiently. :P

    My heart and prayers are with you. <3

  2. :( I'm sorry you're having a hard time. Cancer pretty much sucks. All the time. No matter what. I love your optimism and the positive spin you try to put on your blogs, but really...at the end of the day, it's still brutal- because the treatment makes you feel worse than the symptoms, and just when you start to feel better, it changes and things get worse again. I don't pretend to understand what it's like for you...but I know someone who does. And I trust that HE will tell you what you need to hear and help you persevere through the next 2 years. Praying as always~ this week, it's Psalm 18 I keep coming back to when I think of you. Read it sometime when you're up to it and the words aren't swimming on the page....
