Resume Chemo

I walked upstairs to the 3rd floor at the clinic for a lab. My legs were getting heavy as I turned at a staircase to the 2nd floor, and by the time when I got to the 3rd floor, I was totally out of breath. I was panting.

I sang a song together with a little piano student. As a four measure phrase was too long to sing without inhaling, I got out of breath again and coughed hard.

It has been two weeks since the discharge, and I am still limiting my activity to a minimum listening to friends’ advice.

I am not sure if pneumonia was completely healed or not yet, but because the lab result was good, I resumed chemo.

I am planning to go to Hawaii in a month with the family. Since about a year ago a good Bible study friend has been inviting us to her house in Maui, saying ” I ‘d like you to stay at my house and relax there.” After a couple attempts and giving-ups, finally we picked the dates and bought the air tickets.

The friend said that in right front of her house was a private beach, where big turtles lived. I have been dreaming to snorkel like when I was young, but if I get out of breath so easily, how can I snorkel? Or at the point just after I gave up the anniversary trip, I am not sure if I can make it to fly to Hawaii in a month. Going on the trip sounds even crazy right now. Yet, if this is another God’s Grace, it is possible.

Well, first I have to clear today’s infusion without much trouble. May everything be under God’s control!

  1. Hi Kathy, I have been looking everyday to see if there was an update from you. I was so happy tonight when I checked and found your latest update. I pray you will be well enough to make the trip to Hawii. I think that is just what you need. Relax and breath in that salt air. Make sure you rest and don’t overdue. I will be praying for you. Love Aunt Pat
