Today I have started a new chemo regimen. I'll have an infusion of oxaliplatin every 21 days and take capecitabine (a chemo pill) twice a day for 14 days. Then I'll have a week off before my next infusion. My oncologist felt this would be the most effective regimen for me because we believe that my cancer may have started somewhere in my gastrointestional tract. We can't be sure though. My daughter and I prayed this morning that God will work through this chemo and kill all lingering cancer. I've had a rough time of it for these last few weeks and I am so ready to feel good again!
You know, when you lay there with very little strength in your body. The devil will take that opportunity to tell you that you are weak. You are only what your body is physically capable of. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. Our strength comes from within, and God is within us. Yes our bodies may let us down, but God never will. God is our strength and our hope. I have hope for a future without cancer. There is no need to worry about the time, God is always on time. I need only be still and wait.
