The reason this is the hardest one is because the count of his white blood cells will be down to the lowest number and this is the treatment that really kills the cancer cells. Also, because his white blood count is so down so low, his blood can't carry as much oxygen as normal and he will feel more fatigued. That makes sense.
Still, he went out this morning, fed the cows and checked water. We've had lunch and he has taken his afternoon nap. I think I just heard the door shut so he must be out the door again and I am getting ready to get supper on the table.
Amazing really, isn't it? For most of us, we woke up this morning and went on with life as usual, not having to give much thought to the utter, total, unimaginable, horrific pictures do not tell the story, devastation that is going on in Haiti. I mean, I have spent the day on the Internet looking at rugs. It has taken all day, there are a lot of rugs out there! Meanwhile, the poorest people in the western hemisphere are spending the second night in a row outside. Wondering . . . I can't imagine what they must be wondering, what you would be feeling or even if you could feel anything at all after something like a 7.0 magnitude earth quake that was only 6 miles under ground. Anything would fall. I would be in shock.
What comes to mind is it could happen here. It could happen in an instant, one minute your cooking supper and the next your sleeping outside, maybe looking for missing family members.
I am not very good at writing what is in my heart at times like this but I just felt the need to try to express how fortunate we are in America. I know we have problems here but really we are so blessed.
Go, hug your family, smile at your children and love on your husband. And pray for the people of Haiti and pray for this country as well.
