I peeked my head out the door and inhaled deeply.
My nose stuck shut from the cold!(0 degrees)This is the result I was after..
Once a country kid, always a country kid.

I am in need of your prayers people.

I am weary physically and emotionally.
I know radiation is next and I know all the facts and stats about how it is supposed
to help me in the long run, but I am still nervous and apprehensive. Some people say "Oh just get it over with, it's really no big deal!" but I am not comforted by such words.
My incision is really bothering me but I don't think it is infected. I am weary of the pain, niggling at me, reminding me that my breast is gone..
I go for therapy today for my lymphedema stuff, so she can check it out for me. Otherwise, I see my surgeon for a recheck Friday. I hope no needles this time!

I need to preach to my soul. Will you please pray the Word of God wiggles down into all the nooks and crannies of my weary heart?

I choose to believe Isaiah 40: 28-31 with all my heart..

"Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth,
does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might,
He increases power.
Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the Lord
will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary."

Amen and amen.

He is faithful,

WE pray that our prayers will hold up your arms like Moses when he was weary.

OK, so today's the day, at 4:30 your time, right? Post back to us and let us know how you're managing the new procedure--you know we love and care about you and want only the best for you!

I'm sure you're going to check with your doctor about your hurting incision--maybe there's some way to be more comfortable that s/he can suggest?

Prayers surround you and your family as you experience radiation.

OK, now I'm going to be pesky and bug you about something unimportant--did you get my e-mail about the nighties?

We love you! Linda
