Steroid week is always so hard. However, this week I decided to do something different. I have been completely focused on making things happy around here. I have made sure to spend a few minutes each morning praying and reading the scriptures so I remember what this life is all about. Then I turn on some hymns all day. Literally. All day. I feel so in tune with the Lord and it has had such a calming affect. It has helped ME tremendously. I have avoided talking on the phone and other distractions, like housecleaning (besides the necessities). I've actually been able to get more done than usual because I am actually balancing myself. I have just felt such a peace this time. I am hoping that the rest of the steroid pulse will continue this way. Knock on wood.
We have had quite the week. Brinley was feeling better by Friday, so they started her back up on her oral chemo and we started her steroids yesterday. And they are definitely taking affect this morning. We managed to get the prevacid this month, (thank you, you know who you are!) and I am hoping that gives her some relief from feeling sick this month. Her counts were really good, so they are talking about increasing her dose of oral chemo, which would be a good thing. They want to check her again in 2 weeks to see if her counts are still good. I am really hoping they are.
