It has been a long two days ...and I am just plain worn out...I feel so worn down it is making things extra hard this week. My head has pounded since my treatment and Bone Marrow test last week. I think everything is just catching up...I am not complaining. I am just feeling really pretty awful this week. I just wish I felt a little better before my next treatment this week. It will be so nice if my treatment plan changes to be spread out as planned after my PET that in coming up shortly. I think that will depend on what the nodules are doing in my chest area. I finally took a pain pill tonight to see if I could get some sleep and feel stronger for tomorrow treatment.

I am going to give a full update about Philip tomorrow. I will say that there has been a lot of things in the works for Philip over the last two days. I am looking forward to sharing all the details tomorrow with all of you. I will let you know that he will be having surgery. There are so many logistics that go into place for this to happen for Philip . Do I need to say that I am both excited and a nervous wreck?

Philip has a hard road getting his body read for this operation. It will involve weaning off some of his meds and this is going to be very hard for him and in some ways can be dangerous with seizures etc. He will be watched very closely. This will be hard for his but is necessary for this operation and he seemed to understand that when we met with the DR. Please pray that his pain level stays at a level he can manage while we prepare for the surgery.

Thank You all for being so supportive...I feel each and every prayer being offered. Our family is blessed by each of you.

I just left a comment at Caring Bridge. I have been in meetings all day (where were you anyway - lol) and didn't get to check in, but you know as soon as I got to a computer, I came to see if you had posted.

I'm so glad you have a plan -- and I know that you remember that God always has one too. Try to get some rest.

With my love ...

I hope you get some good sleep tonight. I can't imagine how drained physically and emotionally you must be. Take an extra pill in my honor and sleep really good. :)

I will continue to keep both you and Philip in my prayers.
