I have SO much to be thankful for…..

Thanks to those who were concerned about the tornados in our area. We were not in the area of harm and were very lucky that none of our family members were harmed either, though we had many that were very close to the damage. I plan to write more about this later….I was blessed to go and work out in the damaged areas last Saturday and Sunday and it was unbelievable. I just have not had a chance to sit downย and write out my thoughts.

Thanks to the neighborhood boy who rang my bell earlier today and asked if he could cut my grass (of course for money)….but hey $10….and it needed it bad….and it was a young man that cared enough to try and earn some money….I was grateful. Do you think it is asking to much to dream of someone ringing my doorbell and asking if they can clean my house for $10? ๐Ÿ™‚

But my biggest thanks today is for Mike’s “still in remission” confirmation that he received today in Little Rock. I know he was dreading the possibility of it not being, though he would never say so. But I knew. He just doesn’t understand the continuing of exhaustion. I am hoping that based on other’s comments, that it will get better eventually. But the doctor’s explanation today was “You are between a rock and a hard place. With high-risk, we have to keep hitting you hard with chemo. So you may not get your energy back.”.

I was on speaker phone while he was in the doctor’s office so that I could hear since I was unable to go due to work. But he called after they were on the road. I asked him how he was….his response….”Great, I’m headed home!”.ย  So I’ll add this to my “thankfulness” list….it’s not just that he hates LR that much….but that he wants to come home to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Someday if Mike wants to call and have a chat with Dave about the fatigue issue, I’m sure Dave would be more than happy to have that conversation, as would others. He may not get 100% back his energy, but he will get a good bit of it back, enough to make him feel human and useful again. I promise.

      what a happy day for you and mike! i know the fatigue issue is a big one, but it sounds like both you and mike are able to practice the art of appreciation and that’s uplifting and very inspiring. when your heart is in “gratitude mode” there’s less space for fear and worry. good for you both! loved this post.

    Great news Angie! And I agree with Lori, fatigue might always be a bit of an issue but it does get better. Jeff has just learned to pace himself.
