chemo day two
"Listen to Me, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived and have carried since your birth. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He and I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you." -Isaiah 46:3-4
We have made it through another day of chemo. Cora is being so brave. She is uncomfortable and we could really see that she didn't feel good this evening. It is so hard to not be able to do much to comfort her. The mama in me wants to snatch her out of her bed and take her home and just hold her. We are praying that her feeling "yucky" means that the chemo is working!
Cora is having to work very hard to breathe and she is getting tired. They put her back on oxygen to help with that. The doctors are also concerned about her getting enough calories. She needs the calories so that she has enough energy to get better. We are trying to feed her more often, but she just doesn't always want to eat. If she doesn't eat enough they may have to give her a feeding tube.
That doesn't sound like great news, but it really was a pretty good day. We are praising God that her electrolyte levels are remaining stable so far. The doctors seem pleased with how she is responding to the chemo. Her chemo will run until very early Sunday morning.
Your prayers continue to overwhelm and humble us. We can't thank you enough for lifting up our precious girl to our Heavenly Father. We know that He loves her even more than we do and is holding her in the palm of His hand.
