And so to the starting blocks....

It's Monday - not my favourite day under normal circumstances, but today is different, it feels to me like we've at last arrived.... In 20 minutes we leave for the hospital to talk to the oncologist and for Karena to have her 4 hour blood test to check kidney function in preparation for Friday's chemo.
It will be good to get this underway as Karena is loosing energy by the day and in increasing pain/discomfort as the days go on too. She is in good heart, and, as ever, God is with us as we head off.
Things I'm thankful for today :
  • God never leaves nor forsakes us
  • Friends who take our children to school
  • Doctors and the NHS
Things to pray for :
  • Karena kidney function to be normal and OK for us to start chemo on Friday
  • Wisdom for doctors as they finalise the details for the chemo
  • Continued strength in heart and mind
Thanks for being our friends and for caring ! Have a great day too ! Must dash, we have an appointment to get to......


  1. We're thinking of you all at this time, but particularly today for the tests. Praying for a good outcome and strength to get through the day.
    Much love,
    Bindy and Chas

  2. Just wanted to let you know that we're praying for you, Karena and the kids.

    Reading this blog makes me so humbled that you are using these times to glorify God with your unwavering faith in Him and His provision for you, it really is an inspiration.

    God bless you both,
    Becky & Dan C x
