Today we are weary. All the exhaustion and emotion of this new journey is catching up to us. We are so thankful that even though our bodies and minds are tired we can still look to the Lord for strength to get through another day. His Word has been so living and real to us through all of this. It’s like He is speaking directly to us. He is!
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:28-31
Cora has improved throughout the day. She was struggling with her breathing and was so tired. The doctor decided to put her on a C-PAP so that she wouldn’t have to work so hard to breathe. The also have continued to give her morphene throughout the day. She was finally able to relax and get some sleep. Cora’s chemo will end early tomorrow morning (around 5am). Praise the Lord! We are so thankful to be almost over this first little hump. After her chemo ends they will be able to give her calories and protiens through her IV. They decided not to give Cora a feeding tube, but she hasn’t been able to eat today. She is sleeping soundly now. We are hoping she gets lots of rest tonight.
