31st March Chemo Day 38

For sure Jane has turned the corner today; she has been quite bright all day although still very weak. The real give-away was when I served her evening meal and she pulled a face! She’d asked for fish and chips and as she’s rarely finished even the smallest meal for several days I gave her only a slightly generous portion, not nearly enough. Most encouraging… although it cost me a few chips before the meal finished. Maybe we can fill the gap with strawberries and cream in an hour or so?

It’s funny but really Jane is only slightly improved and yet it feels like so very much more. It seems such a long while since she was anything like normal even though it was only a week ago when the chemo cloud descended. Without God these past few days would have been impossible and I’ve been thinking again how privileged we are… we have so much support in such a difficult time, surrounded by caring family and friends, and compared with many in the world we live in  the greatest luxury. Having spent time in an undeveloped part of Africa our 3 bed semi is almost palatial and really we can choose to eat just about anything we can imagine. The Lord has truly favoured us with his blessing and given us a wonderful life.

Psalm 23:5 ‘You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.’ (NLT)
