Seconds away, Round #3....

Has another week gone by already ??.....I have been somewhat remiss in my blog updates - sorry...please bear with me...

In general terms, Karena is doing really well.
The first week after her treatment in session #2 was a bit of a washout, but the last 2 weeks have been fantastic - significantly improved in terms of more energy, no pain, good sleeping, doing stuff with the children, laughing, cooking and even a bit of cleaning :-)
Life feels really good right now in comparison to where we were just a month or so ago.....BUT.....we are nowhere near out-of-the-woods yet and the road is a long one...... Chemo #3 is tomorrow so the boxing gloves (girlie pink this time!) are out again.

Karena is out tonight with some friends which is a great way for her to spend her pre-chemo evening ! As for me, I'm OK, and really glad to be doing life with the babe with all of it's highs and lows...taking just one day at a time. She's so fab and my best friend in the whole world !

Things I'm grateful for today :-
  • The new higher energy Karena !
  • Medicine - the chemo really is having a positive effect !
  • Springtime - when life seems to start afresh in so many ways.
Things to pray for, for tomorrow's chemo :-

  • Blood test results to be OK so she can actually have her chemo
  • That the nurse can get a 'line' in for the drip (it's been a problem and sore the last 2 times)
  • Good health for the next week as she recovers (no sickness, no joint pain, no fever etc)
Thanks so much for standing with us....


  1. An update - hurraaay. I've been looking every day, several times a day as I don't want to bother you with emails and other stuff. I hope everything goes ok for Karena tomorrow. I'll be thinking and praying for you as usual.
    big hugs for everyone

  2. How did Karena get on today?
