Thursday 10-1-09 Sanoviv
The schedule is getting a little much. Shelly did much better with the hyperthermia treatment last night (it was only 35 minutes instead of 50 minutes) but it still takes so much out of her.
The hyperbaric chamber was not good yesterday. She is placed in a pressured capsule with a breathing mask. She was supposed to be in for 90 minutes but could only stand an hour. It is on her schedule again today but she is meeting with the Dr. early to tell him she doesn't feel comfortable with it. Supposedly oxygen kills cancer cells. In this state it pushes oxygen into her body. The breathing through the mask was extremely difficult.
As for diet...today is liquids day. We started off with an avocado and lime protein shake. If it were colder it would have tasted better. It wasn't bad but it got me hungry for chips. :-) Apparently we will get soup and smoothies throughout with snacks often throughout the day.
Shell is up to 80 pills a day which is getting to be too much. She is asking her Dr. what options she has since it fills her up so much she can hardly eat.
The devotion today was all about rest...
Matt 11:28 "Come to me all of you who are tired and weary...I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
We long to find that place of rest in Him. Thanks for your prayers!
