Today was a beautiful Sabbath Fast Sunday and the Spirit was very strong. I felt very honored when the Bishopric asked from the pulpit to pray for "Sister Johnson who is going thru treatments." And each of the Sacrament prayers held my name.... what an honor!!! I made it through Sacrament meeting, but just barely due to exhaustion and back pain today. I came home in hopes of catching Relief Society after a quick nap....but alas, I slept too long. But I had a great Sabbath after my nap.
And that brings us to the fact that many people are wondering how I am doing lately..... I guess I am doing better than last year, but not up to "normal." I have to take at least one nap a day, and probably one antinausea pill per day. I feel a bit like a baby, who can be awake and energized for a couple of hours, and then I crash. I am also struggling a lot with "hand, foot syndrome" which is a side effect from the Xeloda chemo pills that I am on. What this means basically is that my hands and especially feet hurt and are tender all day long. I am getting "used" to it, but it isn't my favorite side effect.
So, enough about my life.... Let me tell you about some of the "simple things" going on around our house that make life wonderful....
Will tried to make his cookies look just like Mommy's.....hummmmm
