Week 3 ...day 3.. and GUS!




Now I know you see this one!!! Can you believe it!!? I decided to CLOUD WATCH again during treatment time...like there is a whole lot to do! SMILE!!

So there you go...I found my dog GUS The Schnauzer in the BLUE of the sky! I don't know why the clouds are showing up yellow...they are a vibrant WHITE in the panels.
I got the biggest kick out of finding this leaping Schnauzer! You can see his infamous "eye brows" if you look closely. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Now I see him at each visit. Yesterday I had just showed the girls that do my treatments photos of him..one of them just adores Schnauzers..so she laughed when I said..NOW you really won't believe what I just found in the clouds!!

I think it actually brings a SMILE in their day...as I think upon the many patients they treat on a daily basis. Some I'm sure in bad shape...Chemo patients have to have radiation also...and if theirs is after weeks or months of Chemo treatments, I'm sure they are not as up to a cheerful visit as I am. I PRAY that I make a difference for them each day I am there.

I am doing well...I see my Oncologist each week and the Onco-nurse...my skin looks great to them. Me..it is fine..just some color changing..a very minor itch from time to time. The nurse told me of a SALT bar that you wet and use like deodorant for when the skin is moist in humidity. No deodorant with radiation treatments..and no perfumed soaps or lotions allowed. She said the Salt block is also found right along with the deodorants or near Natural products like TOM's.

The fatigue is still an issue with me...have to watch myself. Just yesterday, I had a WONDERFUL day of TEA with friends (will post on THIS IS THE DAY) and today, could feel the tiredness of a whole day out yesterday. It was WORTH it!!!

When I have more time, I will post on my diagnosis and some information that might be helpful to you or others you know.

Please continue to PRAY for my friends...Kelly, Cindy and Lois.

Blessings...
HOPE

Oh dear friend,

The Lord loves us so much than even when we are going through a trial, like radiation, He gives us a comforting gift just for us to appreciate.

The finding of your lovely dog is a gift dear friend, to remind you how much He loves you!

I am glad that your skin is doing well, but fatigue is going to be an issue. I am sure that you are able to take some herbs to help you with this.

Praying that the Lord continues to give you the strength everytime you must be under the lights.

I love clouds. I do see your dog.
I have found many things in clouds.
I can sense joy and peace in your trail of chemo. Just know the Lord never puts more on us than we can bear. He is always there. I have found Him many times in the clouds. Look again- you might just see Him looking at you. Praying for you.
