Health Update

I haven't written much about my health because there really isn't much to report.

The diet is going fine.

I'm still the same.

Maybe a little more energy, but that's about it.

The new news is that I have my first oncology appointment on Monday.

His name is Dr. Bradly Lair.

He is with Medical Oncology and Hematology Association.

I haven't looked up what hematology is yet. I probably should know, but I'm rebelling.

I don't like the fact that I even have to go see an oncologist.

And I don't want to add another long medical word to my list of knowledge because it relates to me.

Not the best attitude, I know, but it is how I'm feeling at the moment.

I'm just tired.

Tired of more appointments.

Tired of having to fit an oncology appointment in before a dentist appointment for my daughter.

It just seems wrong. Dentists appointments are so normal.

Oncology ones aren't.

But.... right now I need to go and get an attitude check.

Hopefully, I can find one of those borrowed smiles.

God doesn't promise us an easy life, but He does promise to walk with us through everything. Even oncology appointments followed by the dentist.

I needed to write that down to remind myself. It's easy to forget in the midst of life.

It really did help. :-)

Hey Becca! Praying for ya. I thought of this when I read your post - Neh 8:10b "for the joy of the LORD is your strength." Focus on Him and the spiritual reasons to rejoice!
Borrow this smile for tonight. :)
Love, Rachel

(And hematology has to do with blood)

Thanks guys! At least I only have to deal with the Oncology part, right? That is worth something. My blood work has all been free and clear. That is a lot to smile about!
