Chemo Day 3

Nothing too exciting to report – I guess that’s a good thing. I stayed in bed most of the day and finally got up around 5:00 p.m. to shower.   No sign of hair loss or mouth sores :). No puking going on, just nausea and the feeling that I am in a dream world due to the 4 medications I am taking.  I don’t have much of an appetite and so whatever I do feel like eating is what goes in – my dad brought me In N Out fries and a burger and I loved it.  That’s about all I had today + a Jamba Juice and a Slurpee – again, all nontraditional foods in the Amy Stevens diet.
So I got ready and made it to the Jon Schmidt concert down the street tonight – thanks to my friend Jennifer for arranging it.  She made it so perfect with blankets and making sure I was comfortable just lying there.  It was great and I got to meet some amazing new women who I am now blessed to call friends.  I love my life and the way that wonderful people continue to come into it, even when I don’t have much to give in return right now.  Thank you all for loving me and caring enough to bless me through this process.
Tomorrow is Sunday, so that means more friends and family to see!  I hope to make it to some form of church – perhaps even part would be nice.  When I'm not having cancer I am normally a primary teacher to a very cute little class of 7 and 8 year olds.  They brought me a card and blanket this week to show their love and concern.  Their innocence and faith remind me of an important truth that humbles me: "Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven" Matthew 18:3.  I've got a lot of work to do on that front . . .
