Waiting Patiently

The thermometer read 99.3 F. At the night of the chemo infusion, I was running a little fever. This happens sometimes after chemo. That’s why I moved the infusion from Tuesday, the day before the Hawaii trip, to Friday so I have a enough time to recover.

Yet Saturday, the symptoms were still the same.
“Should we give up the trip?”
The question came out from my mouth several times, and then George answered, “One day at a time. Let’s see how you feel tomorrow.”
I gave myself a shot, which boosted up the white cell count, took Tylenol, some supplements, and read the Psalms:
” Oh, hear me as I pray;
pay attention to my groaning.
Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God,
for I pray no one but you.
Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
Every morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly….” (Psalm 5)

I gave the prayer just like the psalm and fell asleep.

This morning, finally the fever went down and I feel better!
George started packing. Sue, the owner of the house in Maui, gave us the car key. The kids wrote on a Mother’s Day card, “See you in Hawaii!”
“Rest one more day and we have a good chance to make the trip,” said George.
Yes. I am almost there!
Trusting in the Lord, I wait upon His answer patiently.

  1. Hi Kathy,

    I read, with anticipation, your blog and am thinking that you and George WILL go to Hawaii!!
    YAY!
    You will be making new wonderful family memories there.
    I probably won’t be in touch with you until your return – so have a wonderful time!
    XOXO

  2. Lenore,

    Thank you so much for the encouragement! I probably will be cautious until the last moment to leave LA, and even in Hawaii anything can happen, but I trust the Lord and am grateful for all the prayers and kindness like your continual support!

  3. It’s great that you plan a family vacation on Maui. May you have a memorable time! There is good medical care there as we found out one year when we needed it.
    God bless you!

  4. heidi,

    Thank you for the prayer! I have two more days to leave, but need more energy to be fully charged. Please continually pray together with me! Thank you!
