Sunday, January 10, 2010

Sofie and I were able to come home a few days early due to the doxyrubison being discontinued from her last chemo treatment. We pulled into Jackson yesterday, and went straight to the high school for the last half of Damon's game. This morning we decided to try to take Sofie to sacrament meeting since our church now starts on the later schedule. Getting her there was no small feat, however, and she felt very sick. I think we'll stick with having the sacrament brought into our home to avoid the same hardship next time. She had a hard time today, lots of nausea, and asking for more and more meds. She also had strong chest pains tonight which scared her. Spiritually today, though, she was strong. We are very connected, she and I. A lot of our spiritual insights come at the same time and we seem to be sharing the same soul, which can be very comforting through it all.

We will be in Jackson til the 27th. Next time we have a long stay, 14 days, interspersed with 2 day breaks. We are grateful for time home to connect with real life, friends, and of course, sisters, Hallie and Sydnie. Had a great day with the little ones today. It's hard to believe we are in this for several more months with the ups and downs that actually create strength as we go along. Living with tribulation connects us closely to God and what a blessing it is in our lives.
