Big Week

Tomorrow kicks off a big week for us. We'll be heading up to Durham sometime in the second half of Monday. Tuesday is filled with appointments...we'll find out how well Gwyneth is doing, and know how well this chemo is taking care of Tricia's lymphoma. Tricia has a few appointments with the transplant team on Wednesday morning, and then we're hoping to head home.

We've been praying for several weeks that the next few days will bring great news.

Tricia was in bed since last night until just about an hour ago...her chemo side effects are kicking in strong, and I'm guessing she's still feeling sick from this sinus thing. She's coughing up junk.

We're hoping that Tricia won't have to be admitted into the hospital, but we're taking extra clothes and baby gear in case (because you never know).

Also, Tricia's sister, Megan is flying down to hang with us and help me balance time between my girls schedules.

We also need to get a bit of "big city" shopping in, for things that we can't find here on the OBX.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers this week. I'll update when I can...

Nate,

Our family will be covering you in prayer this week.

Praying that there is no need for a hospital stay.

Praying that God uses this time back at the hospital to reach more lives through your powerful testimony of faith and love for our Savior!

Love and blessings,
Jill

I can imagine...
but really don't know.

I suffer from asthma & chronic sinus problems... recently just finished course #2 of antibiotics and a course of steroids. That is bad enough. It kicked my butt.

Add chemo... to all of Tricia's transplant meds. NO immune system.
I can only imagine how she feels.

I will continue to pray.

I can relate to the effects of chemo on top of a cold, so as I head to bed, I'm praying for Tricia and that your week is full of good news!

The first sinus infection/cold/flu after tx is very scary. It's definitly complicated by the chemo. I am praying that it will resolve, and the appointments will go well!! Hang in there!
