Just walking the dog....

Today Karena walked the dog (Sam)...that may not sound particularly interesting or remarkable...but for her it was the first time since before Christmas that she has been able to do so....she saw a friend at the park and burst into tears - because it was just such a 'normal' thing to be doing.
She DEFINITELY has more energy, she managed a trip into town yesterday for a couple of hours, and has been doing stuff around the house and with the children....oh normality, how we love it ! She isn't on full form, but there are big improvements in energy levels and general well-being and she is sleeping well. All good stuff.
So I think we can confidently say that Karena has improved. It's 11 days since chemo #2 so her blood count will be about as low as it's gonna get right now and she should be on the up-slope until chemo #3 a week on Friday (6th March)

Stuff we're grateful for today :-
  • E N E R G Y
  • The dog (never thought I'd say that !)
  • Normality in all it's forms !
Stuff to pray for :-
  • Resistance to infection, cold, flues etc
  • Increased strength leading up to chemo #3
  • Cancer to continue to shrink


  1. Glad to hear the good news. Keep up the praying everyone.
    Why on earth wouldn't you be grateful for you dog - the silent friend.

  2. Great news! Praise God! Will keep praying! x
