so tired

I’m writing this on my kindle fire so once again bear with me. I’m going to have spelling and grammatical errors.Thank you for your prayers since my last post. We met with Dr. Schott at u of m on Tuesday. The Ct scan I had last week hasn’t been read by a radiologist yet. Dr. Schott could see that the chemo is working. The spots in my lungs are shrinking! Praise God for hearing prayers.Dr. Schott could also see that I have more fluid in my lungs compared to a few weeks ago. This explains my pain and breathing difficulties.My hemoglobin also dropped to 7.6. This brings me back to the spelling and grammatical errors. I’m sitting in the hospital waiting to get a blood transfusion.The next step will be to decide if we are going to tap my lung to drain the fluid. I’m so glad I have doctors I can trust with those decisions.I’m tired. Of everything. In every way. Sorry I have no light hearted humor today. I’m just too tired. So tired!

    So glad to hear that spots are shrinking! Praying that you can soon have relief from the pressure and breathing difficulties. Praying for you to be less tired. Thank you for the update it is nice to know what we can be praying for. Praying you feel God’s loving arms holding you as you go through your day today.

    Thanks for the update Lindy. How could you not be tired of it all? Your poor body has been through so much. I’l keep praying that the chemo will continue to work, praise God, and that this blood transfusion will give you more energy to keep fighting. My heart goes out to you. Praying all the time.
