Day 3 Radiation:
Another good day, thank you Jesus! Today’s schedule was pleasantly short. Kayleigh had radiation at 10:00 which she did like a champ. We are noticing a little bit of fatigue but so far that is the only side effect. We are praying diligently each day that she will have no bad side effects and are offering our thanks each day when that prayer is so graciously answered! She is still on a fairly high dose of steroids but we expect to step those down again tomorrow.
We also visited with the “school” department today. If for any reason we have to be here when school is in session they have teachers on campus to help one-on-one with her school work. It is such a blessing to know St. Jude has thought of everything possible to make life a normal as possible.
Since we finished up before lunch today we decided to check out the zoo! All of the staff has told us about how great the zoo is and they were right. We didn’t stay very long but Kayleigh loved getting to go and see the animals. We managed to see about half of the exhibits so we have more to look forward to in the days to come.
Tonight’s prayer requests:
1.) If steroids are lowered tomorrow that her body adapts well and there are no adverse side effects
2.) Kayleigh will feel good enough to come home this weekend!
3.) Complete and miraculous healing in the name of Jesus Christ.
Tonight I leave you with a quote from my devotion last night and a verse a good friend sent…
“God can do nothing for me until I recognize the limits of what is humanly possible, allowing Him to do the impossible.”
“As for me, I look to the Lord for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.”
We are learning no matter where you are, no matter what obstacle you face, when you surrender the situation to God He grants you peace. And with peace comes thankfulness, hope and joy for every day. Many of you have commented on our strength through this. We want you to know it isn’t us. On our own we would be lost in our own despair. It is Jesus in us. That is where our strength comes from.
Thank you all for your continuous prayers and support. We love you –
