21 March 2013

Victoria was well enough to have chemo yesterday, despite her neutrophils being on the low side. Praise God. The infection in her arm has almost cleared up. Again we are thankful that it did not spread.

We were able to visit the Starlight Express room whilst waiting for the blood results. One Captain Starlight was doing face painting. Alexandra gladly put her hand up.
The Starlight Express room craft for the morning involved pipe cleaners, beads and calico bags. For the super-crafty you could have a go a poking the pipe cleaners through the calico and adding beads to make beautiful patterns.
We chose to stick with slightly simpler things. My sister, visting from New Zealand made some butterflies and spiders.
I helped Victoria make a necklace, which she is modelling. Note that dolly came with us to the hospital this trip, as she had the 'vomits during the night.'
Emotionally this week everyone is travelling pretty well, thank you for your prayer covering.
Last week whilst we were away I listened to a podcast from a wonderful friend from Sydney. It is well worth a listen if you are wondering if God has what it takes. It helped me to examine my thoughts and get them lined up with what God's truth is.
As draw closer to another scan, God's word continues to a marvellous comfort ...
"Asa cried to the Lord his God, O Lord, there is none besides You to help, and it makes no difference to You whether the one You help is mighty or powerless. Help us, O Lord our God! For we rely on You and we go against this multitude in Your name. O Lord, You are our God; let no man prevail against you." 2 Chronicles 14:11 (AMP)
Many many thanks again for the continued prayer and practical support. You are a blessing, in Jesus Name.
