What’s New

posted by:

Did I depress you after my last doom and gloom update?  Sorry about that.  Sometimes I just have to unleash.  Thank you for your comments and communication.  They made me feel so much better. 

I’m feeling better today.  I’m starting to realize that I have one bad week (right after chemo) followed by an okay week.  I’ll take what I can get ya know?  I had a good time hanging out with the Jill’s today.  Jill G hung out with me all day and took care of my kids.  Jill B cleaned my house and gave me a mini pedi.  Tammy and the kids brought some beautiful flowers and notes.  Thank God for great friends! 

Some of you were wondering if our new carpet got wet over the weekend.  It turns out the carpet didn’t come in Friday so it hasn’t been put down yet.  It’s a good thing because we did get a little wet. 

The bone scan and fluids went well on Monday.  I had some really nice techs at Holland Hospital who hung out with me during the scan.  🙂  The nurse at the cancer center was able to access my port on the first try.  Big relief.  I called for the results of the bone scan today, but I haven’t heard back yet.  I also got my labs drawn today and I’m assuming no news is good news.  

The kids are doing well.  Over the past three days Brooklyn learned how to swim and is brave enough to jump off the diving board (thanks Monica)!   She’s going to VBS at Community Reformed Church and having a ball with that.  Samantha is battling a double ear infection and Max is still our chill little dude.  

Thanks for checking in.  I’ll let you know the results of the bone scan as soon as I get it.  Have a great night!

    Dear Lindy,
    We’re so thankful that you’re feeling better today! It’s perfectly O.K. for you to unleash – you’re allowed. Who’s to say what any of us would be like given your condition. I’m so proud of you and how strong you are and the wonderful testimony you always give. Sometimes I think you’re more of an encouragement to us than we are to you. We continue to pray for you and the results of the bone scan, trusting God that He has it all worked out. We petition Him for good news, and that your healing has already begun. Ps. 34:17-19: “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.” The power of the storm last week doesn’t begin to compare to the amount of power God has available to heal you. He hears our cries, and He is mighty to save! Praying for you all…

    Hello, my long, lost, googly-eyed friend! I really don’t know what to say to you, other than I miss you and I am praying for you. I am so sorry for what you are going through. I know you will overcome this obstacle, but feel awful for the pain and worry this is causing you and your family. I would love to come visit or pick up the kids for a day and give you a much needed break. Matt is more than happy to help out, too. I don’t know if I should call, but please feel free to call me if you need anything! My cell is 616-334-1463. I have a big mouth, but I can also be a good listener. I know a little about how life can be unfair and understand the need to vent sometimes. I believe in you and you can beat this. Keep the spirits up, but don’t feel bad for having an off day. You are stronger than you know.

    We want to hear how you are really feeling (like you have been sharing). We wouldn’t want you to only post when everything was great or you were faking it. This way we know how to help or how to pray. Praying that the bone scan is good! I know that is a big one and you are probably anxious to know the results. I liked talking with you on the phone yesterday. You are full of strength.

    Praying that your bone scan results come back clear. Try to keep cool in this heat. I hope Samantha feels good soon!

    Thanks for mentioning those really nice techs:) Wish we could have shared the results with you then, so you wouldn’t have had to worry. Glad to see you are doing better. You are certainly in my thoughts and prayers. Love checking in to see how it’s going. See you next time.
