Hard D

Today was probably the hardest day so far. They started the Chemo drugs late last night and she was whammied today. She has been nauseous all day and they administered a drug to help the nausea which makes her sleep - because she sleeps all the time she is on IV drip.
It is so hard to see my happy, vibrant, slightly feisty 14 year old so "puny". I am praying hard that she will just perk up and say okay - I'm fine now - lets go home. Well, so far no - and they will administer two chemo drugs (3 last night) tonight - I feel like the air got knocked out of me watching her.
Thank you all for your prayers, scripture, and support.
Thanks Pam and Evelyn, Boyds and Traegers for visiting and bringing Alyssa alittle treat.
Thank you Boyd's and Sedillos for dinner. Thank you Jo and BJ & Family for the cards and well wishes, Also Thank you Aunt Nita for the cards. Thank you Lori for watering my chickens when I forgot!!!!!
Thank you Grandma for sitting with Alyssa last night and letting us go home and rest.
Thank you Melissa, Kim, Lauren and Ric T. for visiting with me and offering help or whatever we need - HUGS to you all.

Poor Alyssa. Thank goodness for sleep, though. It's probably better to sleep through the toughest parts of this treatment.

Doesn't make it any easier on Mom, though. Hang in there, D. God has Alyssa in His strong, safe arms.

By the way, while searching for a poem for one of my blog posts, these few called out to me loud and clear. I am sure that God wanted me to share them with you. So here they are:

"What Cancer Cannot Do"
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the must do the thing you cannot do."
Author: Eleanor Roosevelt

"Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful."
Author: Joshua J. Marine

Love to you all,
